This scenario is all too common: A user changes roles within an organization, so they are granted additional access rights — but they still retain all the access they had for their old role. As a result, that user, or an attacker who compromises their account, can get their hands on significantly more data than they should.
Clearly, promptly removing outdated and unnecessary permissions is vital for mitigating the risk of data theft and insider threats. However, it’s easier said than done. Not only do users frequently shift roles, but the access needs for various job functions change all the time, and so do data owners. There is no simple way for IT teams to stay on top of exactly which users should have what type of access to what data. But having the people who do have this knowledge, the data owners, verify access via manual processes like email is both time consuming and unreliable.
Netwrix is here to help. In this webinar, we’ll show how you can dramatically strengthen your security posture by making it easy for business owners to regularly review access rights.
Watch this session as we demonstrate Netwrix Auditor Access Reviews. This solution enables you to:
- Securely delegate access reviews to data owners
- Provide a user-friendly interface for reviewing access rights and recording decisions
- Aggregate the answers to facilitate informed remediation actions
