Data is an organisation's most valuable asset, consisting of anything from intellectual property to customer information. Often, this data is found on a number of platforms: Windows file servers, NAS devices, SharePoint sites and more. Unfortunately, many organisations cannot adequately control access to that data, or even reliably assess who currently has access.
Nevertheless, organisations need to satisfy compliance requirements and be able to quickly address security threats-or, ideally, prevent them from arising at all. They need to centralise the access request process and put an end to ambiguity about who has access to what. They need automated, multi-platform data access governance. This white paper outlines six steps to achieving that data access governance.
