Controlled Access to Confidential Data
Data access management is an essential part of the security strategy of any business. It helps to limit the amount and type of confidential information which can be accessed. It can prevent the leakage of intellectual property and the exposure of personal information of employees and customers. address
To control access to confidential data, policies must be implemented that specify the types of sensitive information to which specific employees or departments should have access. This ensures the most pertinent data is accessed. This prevents wasteful searches, and ensures productivity increases.
Protecting first-party data
Data integrity is the quality of data and its accuracy. Data integrity can be protected at different levels by ensuring that only authorized individuals can access the information, encrypting the data so that it can’t be read or altered without permission, and monitoring who accesses data, when and how often.
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. It’s difficult and can cause serious issues if permissions have been granted incorrectly.
