Spotting Access Risk Takes You Only Halfway to Prevention
We are an access control solution provider and are extremely proud of offering the tools that can help customers spot access risks quickly in one of the most complicated business systems in the world: SAP. However, if simply identifying risks is your end game, you’ve failed.
A Failure to Remediate is a Failure to Control
Being able to see your access and Segregation of Duties (SoD) risks is extremely important, but if you don’t go to the next step of remediation, controls mean nothing. Access controls need to help you do both: identify access risks and help you correct them before they turn into serious cases of internal fraud, data breaches or negative audit and compliance findings.
Companies often come up against resistance when it comes to remediation because it involves collaboration between audit, compliance, IT and security teams as well as business owners – those who generally hold some level of manager designation and determine access needs according to user or role. Getting everyone on the same bus to remedying access risks is critical and important first step in the process. How do you do that?
We’ve outlined some steps in our 4-step Path for a Smooth Access Risk Remediation eBook.

Smooth Path to Remediation Eliminates Procrastination
Remediation can seem scary and like a lot of work, leading to procrastination for some teams. Having a smooth path to follow and knowing how to get from point A to point B easily can make the job more effortless to start and finish. Sometimes just knowing what to do can make the “how” a lot less daunting.
Some risks, once identified, can require a lot more work than others, such as re-designing roles or business processes, but leaving risk remediation half-done means leaving your door wide open for threats to turn into costly damages that can’t be undone.
