The Principle of Least Privilege (PoLP) states that users of any information resource (system, module, application, document, etc.) have only the minimum access permissions required to do their job.
By limiting the actions that users can do, we are reducing the effects and probability of user mistakes and malicious behavior. This results in several benefits:
Better security: If users have a reduced set of permissions, the consequences of having their accounts compromised or the effect of their malicious behaviors and malicious actions are also limited.
System Stability: If there are only a few sets of users with permissions to change system configuration or do administrative tasks that affect the whole system, the impact of user action is reduced to only their scope of work.
Audit readiness: Currently all companies must undergo strict auditing processes to obtain official certifications that endorse their cybersecurity, among them some of the most outstanding and that we are going to analyze briefly are:
These and all other certifications require some degree of control and auditability of user access and permissions. Enforcing this before the certification or revalidation process will save you a lot of effort when the time comes.
MyLenio’s team module gives you an intuitive and graphic interface to configure the structure of your teams, their roles, and the SaaS they need to do their job, assigning only the required access level to each SaaS per role.
Adding and removing people from a role will automatically create and change the permissions on each SaaS (or trigger the tasks for admins to do it when the SaaS forbids these actions).
This way you can have your teams’ access up-to-date and compliant at any time with just a few clicks.
Not only will you save time, will also provide your company with much better cybersecurity, and you will also invest less economic resources in a process that can be costly for companies.
From MyLenio we invite you to enter our website and see how it is possible to optimize your time and resources in an easy and efficient way.
