Access to data within systems in any organization is extremely important to internal users, but at the same time security of that data is also important. We always hear about big data breaches, so how can you keep your data safe? We have see trend in customers using FlowWright workflow automation to automate access to their data. We explain how this can be valuable below.
Internal to organizations, there are many users who need access to company data. Sales figures, customer lists, billing information, employee records, and more. Data breaches happen when:
- Application security vulnerabilities arise
- Network security is vulnerable
- Internal hacking happens
- External hacking happens
- Misuse of data happens
- Data from lost equipment is compromised
- Data from equipment that is no longer in use is not properly wiped
There are probably more reasons, but those are the main ways breaches are happening. So, what can you do to protect your systems and their data?
Automate. By putting processes around your data requests, the automated process can perform the necessary checks and balances to make decisions without any, or if needed, little human interaction. By setting up the process like this it allows the system to determine if the requested user should have access to the requested system or data being pulled. Enterprise companies have concerns around securing manual systems where data cannot be accessed 100% accurately. With a digital process, users can automatically verify if the employee should have access to the requested data. If the process cannot determine this a simple request can be escalated to system owners to make that manual decisions, whether to allow the user to access the data.
Digital workflow processes are fast, accurate, and secure. A similar process performed manually has unforeseen bottlenecks, and at a tipping point for the business can break down and expose risk. Bottom line: secure your data today and automate your processes around data access.
