Common Access Control Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Access control is the heart of data security. Without the proper access protocols in place, any organization’s data and assets could be exposed to unauthorized users. Unfortunately, when it comes to access control, even organizations with sophisticated security systems can make mistakes. This article provides an overview of the most common access control mistakes and offers effective solutions for avoiding them.

I. Introduction to Common Access Control Mistakes

Access control is an important security measure for any organization. While access control provides security, it has become increasingly important to ensure that it is well configured as the risk of misconfiguring access control can be significant. This post is about common mistakes made when configuring access control.

As access control need to be configured and reviewed regularly, it is easy for human errors to occur when protecting user accounts and computer systems. Having strong passwords can stop hackers from accessing unauthorized areas, however if access control isn’t configured properly to manage user privileges and responsibilities, system vulnerabilities can be exposed.

  • Permission overload: one of the common mistakes is adding too many permissions to user accounts. This increases the risk of privilege abuse or data leakage.
  • Inappropriate default settings: Default usernames and passwords should be updated regularly to reduce the risk of malicious attack. Failing to do so can expose the system to vulnerabilities.
  • Sharing Account credentials: All too often, access control policies allow users to share their accounts, even though this can have a huge security risk to the entire system.
  • Poor training: Lack of training on access control policies, and weak enforcement of existing policies, can also leave the organization open to unauthorised access.

Chellu Solutions provides an Access Control solution that helps you take full control of your security protocols and protect your organization from malicious attack. For more information, don’t hesitate to contact us on Office/Whatsapp: 010 880 8990, Email: or via our contact page via our website.

II. Common Mistakes

English writing can be a difficult skill to master. There are many common mistakes made when writing that can easily lead to confusion or miscommunications.

    1. Inappropriate Use of Grammar: Improper use of grammar can be confusing and have unintended meanings when communicating in English. Common mistakes when using grammar include misuse of verbs, incorrect tenses, improper subject-verb agreement, and misuse of prepositions, conjunctions, and adverbs.

    2. Misuse of Punctuation: Incorrect punctuation can drastically change the meaning of a sentence. For example, a dialogue without proper punctuation can lead to an incorrect interpretation of the person’s message. Misplaced commas, semi-colons, and quotation marks can cause great confusion.

    3. Misused Words: A common mistake people make when writing in English is using words that sound or look similar. For example, the words “their”, “there” and “they’re” all have different meanings and are often misused. Difficult words should be thoroughly crosschecked with a dictionary to ensure that the correct words and meanings are being used.
