Only a small percentage of UK businesses have automated user account management
Study: 2004 Information Security Breaches Survey
Date: April 2004
Companies are increasingly automating the process for granting, changing, and removing access. 31% of large businesses follow this practice compared with 16% of businesses overall.
Some have automated the provisioning process so that authorization of a user access request triggers the automatic set up of the required access rights on the relevant systems. While only 3% overall have implemented this system, one in four (25%) businesses where staff use more than ten systems have done so.
