Customer case Bjørnafjorden

Bjørnafjorden municipality saw the light of day in January 2020, when the  municipalities Os and Fusa were merged. The municipality has just under 25,000 inhabitants and around 1,800 employees.

Prior to the merge, the two municipalities agreed that it was necessary to implement a proper solution for identity and access management. The municipalities therefore began to look at different identity solutions, and eventually chose One Identity, a solution based on Microsoft Identity Manager (MIM).

Better control of onboarding and offboarding processes with Microsoft Identity Manager

Consultants from Innofactor have worked with Bjørnafjorden to set up the new ID solution, in addition to a new e-mail solution based on Exchange Online. The MIM solution is connected to Microsoft Azure AD (Active Directory), so that access to file areas and other network resources can be controlled based on which groups in AD employees are members of.

Now Bjørnafjorden has much better control of onboarding and offboarding, and new employees are registered in AD via personnel notification.

Innofactor assisted in conducting a safety audit

The Norwegian National Security Authority (NSM) states in its 2021 report on the National Risks that there is a very high risk that Norwegian companies will be exposed to ransomware viruses during 2022. This is a threat the IT department in Bjørnafjorden municipality is acutely aware of, not least since there have recently been examples of ransomware attacks that have had serious consequences for other municipalities.

Therefore, Bjørnafjorden received assistance from Innofactor to conduct a safety audit. Although the review proved that much was already in good order, it was very useful. Based on the audit, Bjørnafjorden received a lot of specific tips on what they could improve.

How it was done

The following technologies were a part of Bjørnafjorden's solution:
