Controlled Access to Confidential Data

Data access control, which limits the amount confidential information that is accessible by unauthorized parties, is a key element of a security strategy. It can help prevent the loss of funds, intellectual property leaks, and exposure of customer’s and employee’s personal information.

Implementing policies that specify which sensitive data types specific employees and departments are allowed to access is one way to control access to confidential information. 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 refers both to the accuracy and quality of the 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 Controls (RBACs). In this model access is granted according to the role of the individual in the company and the function that they have within it. This method is most effective in organizations with different levels of clearance, such as the military or law enforcement agencies.

Discretionary accessibility control (DAC), in this model the end user is the one who controls the access to resources. The user has the freedom to set his or her own permissions and revoke other users’ permissions. It is difficult to enforce but can lead serious problems if the permissions granted are incorrect.
