Technical challenges

Qualify your data to create a referential

Data extraction and consolidation are critical phases in the access review process. Data quality remains a completely separate challenge.

By data quality, we mean that, for “business” or technical reasons, a specific resource can have a different name, structure, or spelling across different repositories, applications, or directories.

In this case, the first step is to compare, clean up, and standardize the access to information for all managed environments. Enigmatic names, such as SAP or mainframe, really do not make sense for an auditor or a security officer.

Brainwave solves this problem by standardizing information within its repository through data integration. Issued from HR framework, the solution provides others with information that can be read by any type of IT user or business unit.

With Identity Analytics and Intelligence, Brainwave secures the company’s transition into a digital environment.

Solutions

Poor data quality implies extra risks

Some poor management practices are causing problems with data quality.

Due to a lack of time or good practice in rights management, it is common for administrators to assign direct or discretionary rights without using Active Directory groups.

  1. Too much tolerance from administrators regarding residual rights within repositories
  2. Orphan accounts result from a lack of synchronization with personnel movements
  3. Good management of privileged accounts (legitimacy, etc.)
  4. Lack of respect for the specific nomenclature used for indexing privileged accounts
  5. Management of dormant accounts, timely supervision of deactivated accounts, team accounts management
  6. Cyclic groups in AD (problem with stability and availability of applications they rely on)
  7. Inheritance ruptures in the allocation of rights to shared folders (also falling into the category of data governance issues)
  8. Absent or partially missing metadata (data governance -> data classification)

These practices must be avoided as they carry significant risks. Brainwave Identity GRC makes identification processes an easy and fast-to-achieve task.
