Data access controls are a crucial part of any company’s security plan. They limit the amount of confidential info that can be accessed. It can prevent the loss of corporate funds, the leakage or intellectual property, and the exposure of customer and employee personal information.
Controlled access to confidential data involves implementing policies that dictate which types of sensitive data specific employees and departments must have access to. This will ensure that only the relevant data is accessed. This will prevent wasteful searches and increase productivity.
Protecting your first-party data
Data integrity is the quality and accuracy of information. Data integrity can vary in levels. This can be achieved by ensuring only authorized users have access to information, encrypting that data so it cannot be read without permission, or monitoring who is accessing the data, how often, and when.
Role-based Access Control (RBAC) : This model grants access based on an individual’s role and job function in the organization. This method can be used in organizations, where different groups are granted different levels to read or write data.
Discretionary (or discretionary) access control: In this model access to a resource is controlled by the user. They have the freedom to grant or revoke their own permissions. However, it’s difficult to enforce and can lead to serious problems if permissions are mistakenly granted.
