What is Segregation of Duties?

Segregation of Duties, or SoD, is primarily used to prevent any user from being able to wield too much power, to the point where their permissions allow them to circumvent normal approval processes. For example, when dealing with sensitive data, no one should be able to both make a request and, at the same time approve it, acting as both requestor and approver. These types of permissions should be mutually exclusive so that users maintain a level of accountability.

Identity Management makes it easy to manage Segregation of Duties in your business, and IDM365 reports which codifies the different roles and user entries, so it can be proved if governed.
