Best Practice Tips for Successful Role Design (with video)

Great role design is the cornerstone of an efficient, sustainable, and scalable security model

Role Design

I’ve spoken to many customers like Jimmy John Shark who feel that JDE security is incredibly complex and time-consuming to manage, which causes difficulties with maintaining compliance.

Often, this is due to weaknesses in the security design, which can lead to problems in manageability, integrity, and visibility over who can access what.

Implementing Role-based Access Control is the best way to achieve efficient security, but for maximum efficiency, scalability and sustainability, your roles need to be well designed.  This requires good planning.

In this video, I talk more about:

  • Why good role design is important
  • The importance of proper planning
  • Things to consider when designing roles
  • Common pitfalls.

I hope you find it useful!
