Segregation of Duties and Sensitive Access Assessment

Segregation of Duties and Sensitive Access Assessment

PwC’s Workday Segregation of Duties (SoD) and Sensitive Access (SA) Assessment Solution is an automated tool that evaluates and identifies access violations relating to SoD and SA. It provides users with a dashboard view of various conflicts identified, along with a spreadsheet that details the cause of each conflict based on the organization’s Workday configuration. 

Running this tool allows you to gain valuable insights, such as:

  • Which users can view, modify and/or extract data?

  • Which security groups and users have pervasive access or access to sensitive system functions?

  • Are there any users that are part of security groups that grant them conflicting access rights?

  • Are there any security groups with inherent conflicting access rights?

  • Which business processes are designed with an inherent segregation of duty conflict?
