Your company is likely to handle sensitive information that needs to be protected from unauthorized access. In the event of a breach in control, it could result in a catastrophic destruction of these precious assets. Access control is a concept that aims to act as a gatekeeper and set the guidelines for handling sensitive material. As organizations change and evolve, their original methods of handling data may no longer be acceptable or appropriate. This can result in sensitive information being released to unauthorized users, whether inside the organization or out of the organization.

Inadequate controls may also lead to the loss of information belonging to a first entity, such as employee and customer data. A breach could expose your organization to costly regulatory penalties such as fines, lawsuits or fines. It could also undermine your customers’ and clients trust.

Controlling access is an administrative as well as a technical process, and achieving controlled access to confidential data requires the right balance of policies, processes, and technologies. They are crucial to ensure that your business adheres to industry regulations and standards, maintains business agility and ensures that customers and clients confidence.

For instance, you need to ensure that physical security protocols are strong and effective that require all employees to keep paper documents, thumb drives and backups that contain personal data in locked cabinets. They should also notify anyone who enters your premises to the security team. It is also essential to create a “need-to-know” for all access. This requires employees to use passwords, two-factor authentication and to check their privilege lists frequently.
