5. Troubleshooting Common Access Control Issues

It’s important for businesses to maintain strong access control over their systems – from physical access to the building, network entry, and authentication of users. But at times, issues can arise in granting the right access to the right people and keeping unauthorized individuals or entities out, leading to potential security threats. Here’s a checklist of common access control issues and how to troubleshoot them:

  • Failure to properly authenticate or authorize users – This typically is a result of issues with the setup of authorization roles. Make sure all user roles are properly assigned and updated.
  • Insufficient logging and auditing of user activity – Companies should regularly audit user access logs to get an idea of how users are accessing the system and who is logging in. Documentation of activity can help diagnose and troubleshoot potential security threats.
  • Inadequate physical security – Companies should have measures in place for access to physical locations. This includes keycard access, computer terminals, security cameras, and more.
  • Weak password policies – Poorly designed passwords can be easily guessed or cracked by hackers. Implement policies that require strong passwords and regular changes.
