Six Steps to Achieving Data Access Governance

Organizations know that controlling access to data is vital: security breaches, mistakes and leaks of sensitive enterprise data can lead to loss of intellectual property (IP), system downtime, frustrated users, lost productivity, fines for failing to comply with external regulations, and organizational embarrassment. But the processes at many organizations today to achieve that control are tedious, time-consuming and error-prone. Administrators try to monitor group changes in Active Directory®; data loss on file servers and NAS devices; and SharePoint activity, but all too often these approaches simply address current symptoms but fail to permanently fix the root cause of problems. Moreover, all that manual work and reporting distracts administrators from working on other projects.
