Defining and documenting access roles

Critical
High
Normal
Low

The organization implements role-based access control with predefined access roles for the various protected assets that entitle access to the associated asset. Strictness of the access roles should reflect the security risks associated with the asset.

The following should be considered to support access management:

  • how much information each user needs access to
  • how widely the user should be able to edit data (read, write, delete, print, execute)
  • whether other applications have access to the data
  • whether the data can be segregated within the property so that sensitive data is less exposed

Review of access right for changed employee roles

In all changes on employment relationship, access rights should be reviewed in cooperation with the owners of the protected property and re-granted to the person completely when there is a significant change in the person's employment. A change can be a promotion or a change of role (e.g., moving from one unit to another).
