Access Control (and Why Everything You Know About It is a Lie)


about the author

Share this post

Access Control poses a constant threat to the business environment. 

The vulnerabilities that come into play when there isn’t a proper program of identity management in place are enough to ruin your organisation.

Security professionals, from both the physical aspect and the logical aspect, have been fed a lie that there are no technological solutions to the problem. There is a continued belief that there can never be a solution to Access Control as with each latest threat, the previous solution becomes obsolete.

Too many modern organisations believe that single factor authentication is still robust enough protection for their systems. While others are still under the impression that all that is required to access an organisations facilities is a quick flash of organisational credentials.

Modern day enterprise requires a more sophisticated system coupled with a stronger method of identity vetting.

Access Control Standards

Access Control (and Why Everything You Know About It is a Lie)

This may all sound like a nuclear option to safeguard your business, but it is an imperative, and one that can be achieved by embracing both existing and emerging standards. By approaching Access Control this way, you can safeguard both the physical side of your business and your online perspective as well. These two aspects are continually coming together in Access Control. By creating best practices, you will control costs and increase the chances of success for your Access Control program.

Privilege is Paramount

Access Control (and Why Everything You Know About It is a Lie)

In the past, gaining access to a building may have meant access to all information. But the evolution of Access Control means that it is more stringent measures are required now. Privilege management should be at the core of your new Access Control system. This should not only factor in who can access the building, but where in the building they can go and what can they bring in.

This applies to the information security facet of Access Control as well, as certain information on certain systems would be appropriate only for authorised personnel. The convergence of these physical and information access points means that your business can get even more granular on who has access to what within your organisation.

Access Control Threat Levels

Access Control (and Why Everything You Know About It is a Lie)

A core component of Access Control now lies in its ability to deal with differing threat levels. Planning for different types of threat will help you build the right components and technology into your system and eliminate any weak links in your Access Control security chain.

New systems and technologies are emerging for Access Control. Identity Management Systems that integrate with older legacy systems, smart badge readers, radio frequency identification and biometric technologies are just some of the technologies emerging on the Access Control scene.

Despite this, human error is still the main problem for companies regarding Access Control and this is no match for any technology. So, it’s important that with whatever Access Control method you implement, you also factor in significant staff training and understanding to underpin it all.

Our series of new graphically rich Nano courses provide targeted learning on subjects, including Access Control. Nanolearning increases employee engagement and helps to foster a culture of continuous learning within your organisation. Get in touch to find out more.
