Data access control is an important part of a company’s security strategy. It limits the amount of confidential data that can be accessed without authorization. It can be used to prevent intellectual property leaks, the exposure and misuse of employee and customer information, as well as loss of corporate money.
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 ensures only the most relevant information is accessed, preventing wasted searches and ensuring productivity.
Protecting your first party data
Data integrity refers the accuracy and quality information. Data integrity is protected in different ways. For example, only authorized users are allowed to access the data. It can also be protected by encrypting information so that no one can read it or modify it without permission.
Role-based Access Control (RBAC) : This model grants access based on an individual’s role and job function in the organization. This method is most effective in organizations with different levels of clearance, such as the military or law enforcement agencies.
Discretionary control of access (DAC) – In this model, the end user controls access to the resources. He or she can choose to grant their own permissions or revoke the permissions of others. It’s difficult and can cause serious issues if permissions have been granted incorrectly.
