Auditing your user groups can be time-consuming, but is essential to ensuring there are no redundancies in accounts, no levels of inappropriate and therefore risky access for some users, or other potential problems. Use the checklist to:
- Audit your overall provisioning/deprovisioning processes.
- Review your internal, privileged, remote, and external users.
- Review your change management processes (what happens when a user changes a role – how is that communicated?).
Taking the time to identity and rectify possible issues creates fewer headaches for you in the future.
