Data access controls are a crucial part of any company’s security plan. They limit the amount of confidential info that can be accessed. It can prevent the leakage of intellectual property and the exposure of personal information of employees and customers.

To control access to confidential data, policies must be implemented that specify the types of sensitive information to which specific employees or departments should have access. This will ensure that only the relevant data is accessed. This will prevent wasteful searches and increase productivity.

Protecting your first party data

Data integrity refers to the quality of information and its correctness. 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 Controls (RBACs). In this model access is granted according to the role of the individual in the company and the function that they have within it. This method is especially effective in organizations that have different levels of clearance for reading and writing data, such as law enforcement or military agencies.

Discretionary accessibility control (DAC), in this model the end user is the one who controls the access to resources. The user has the freedom to set his or her own permissions and revoke other users’ permissions. It’s difficult and can cause serious issues if permissions have been granted incorrectly.
