Job Design: Providing Strategic Decision Support for Risk Analysis and Policy Definition

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Strategic decision makers need to organize their workforce and define policies on how to allocate roles and rights to individuals allowing them to work effectively for the organization, whilst minimizing security risks. Many organizations have a separation of duty matrix specifying certain toxic combinations of access rights that they generally understand present an extreme risk. These matrices do not always contain some of the less understood or smaller risks. The flip side of the rights allocation problem is the need for an organization to keep systems running under various pressures including reducing headcounts. This tension often leads to a practice of providing skilled individuals with wide access rights to many systems.
