Minimum access, maximum SOD validation

How an integrated, automated segregation of duties solution can reduce risk and enhance compliance

As businesses adapt to comply with an ever-mounting volume of global regulations – Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCIDSS), and the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), to name a few – appropriate, up-to-date user entitlements and segregation of duties (SOD) controls for corporate applications and data are critical. Automated solutions for administering user access privileges as well as tools for monitoring and validation of SOD can go a long way toward improving compliance efforts, but unless organizations can proactively identify and manage SOD exceptions during the access provisioning process, they may find themselves exposed to greater organizational risk and increased costs.
