In the world of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC), the challenge of figuring out “who should have access to what” based on their job titles can be a bit like untangling a complex web. Whether you’re just starting your GRC journey or are deep into the intricacies of Identity and Access Management, you know that managing this aspect is no walk in the park. GRC processes and policies are the unsung heroes that keep our organizations running smoothly.
GRC’s primary mission is to make sure that when someone starts a new role or switches within the organization, they have the right level of access to do their job effectively. Equally important is the process of offboarding employees when they leave, ensuring they no longer have access to sensitive systems and data.
The Dynamic Landscape of Access Management
In today’s ever-changing business landscape, shifts happen all the time. HR and Procurement departments love to mix things up with new position titles, while the IT folks support a growing list of systems. Plus, the levels of access and assets needed for daily operations can shift like quicksand. This means that the role mappings you painstakingly create might become outdated almost as soon as you finish them, long before automation can even kick in.
