Logical access controls for IT Audit

Be ready for IT auditors. Automate your internal control operations by continuously monitor and check logical access across infrastructure, applications and data.

Provide actionable reports to resources owners to improve data quality, reduce security risks and demonstrate compliance.

All this while improving user experience and reducing the cost of compliance.

Compliance and cyber-security risks: the stakes have never been so high. Organizations are being pressured both by regulators, as well as pervasive insider and outsider threats menacing their business assets and reputation. Enforcing the security and adequacy of user access across systems and applications is a key activity to assess and lower those risks. However, a purely procedural approach to Logical Access Control is hopeless: there are too many parameters, too many ever-changing data to check. Automation is required.

Brainwave GRC provides a set of features and tools to help you transition from a passive audit posture to an automated, pro-active continuous control approach.

IT General Controls (ITGC)

Implement a continuous monitoring approach for your Logical Access Controls. Detect anomalies, trigger remediation, set alerts and monitor trends.

Benefit from dozens of pre-canned controls ready to be used for any system or application.

Segregation of Duties (SoD)

Implement fine-grained SoD controls for ERP (SAP, PeopleSoft, Oracle eBusiness Suite…) and classify the deviations as part of UAR. Set exceptions, trigger remediation…

Using the simulation module, you can make changes to the role model or to user access and immediately visualize the impact in terms of SoD issues reduction.

Least privilege principle

Model or import business roles and compare with actual user access to detect undesired entitlements.

Using data clustering techniques, you can graphically review user access and ensure that people with the same responsibilities have the same level of access.
