Regulatory burden and compliance
Organizations must comply with more and more laws and regulations. For instance, you must be able to demonstrate in audits that your organization complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) and ISO27001. If an audit shows that your organization is insufficiently in control, this may lead to a fine from the Dutch Data Protection Authority, or, in the worst case, shutting down your business. Therefore, solving problematic audit findings is a high priority.
Being able to demonstrate compliance with laws and regulations, and standards and requirements, is in many organizations a time-consuming, complex, and error-prone process. Fragmented information is often manually merged into one overview. This increases the risk of errors, and as an organization you have only limited control over this process, especially if this is only checked once a year. In addition to spending a lot of time, this also results in a certain degree of “false security”.
Do you want to achieve real security? This is what your organization should know:
- How do I deal structurally and as quickly as possible with problematic audit findings?
- Which identities have access to my company systems? And can this access be justified?
- Should I ask my customers for permission to store and use data, and what is the best way to do that?
Is your auditor satisfied?
A central system, in which information from the HR administration and access rights of identities in applications converge, enables you to demonstrate compliance with laws and regulations more efficiently and effectively to the auditor. This creates a complete overview of the rights that employees have. But it is more than just implementation of technology. It is also necessary to define duties and responsibilities.
If you do nothing
It may be tempting to use a “quick fix” to temporarily get rid of worrisome audit findings. But if your organization has only limited control, the risk of incidents increases. For that reason, data breaches by unauthorized access may become the order of the day. As a result, employees may be able to access privacy-sensitive data that they don’t need for the performance of their duties. This may not only have major financial implications, but also lead to reputational damage for your organization.
