Entitlement Review / User Access Review 2586

  • Hello all,
    I wanted to inquire with you all to see if you have any links to any resources where I can find specific ‘best practices’ guidance with regard to conducting user access reviews. I am specifically looking for support that I will use in a management memo that I am going to write to support how our company needs to improve our user access review process.

  • Hi Jason and welcome 🙂
    The COBIT standards might be worthwhile to download and review
    This may also provide some links

    Some general tips based on past experience:
    – Ensure groups/permissions well documented by IT security
    – Ensure permissions have blessings of system owners (with approvals on file - electronically in sharepoint, email, change mgt system, etc)
    – Look for a minimalistic security approach on sensitive applications (like finance) where users have just enough rights to do job
    – Look for proper approval/autonomy levels in the workflow, permissions, and control structures
    – Use good tools like Bindview, KSA, or other advanced security tools to map our access rights electronically
