ASSOCIATED DRATA CONTROL

This test is part of the Least-Privileged Policy for Customer Data Access control that ensures your company authorizes access to information resources, including the data and systems that store or process customer data, based on the principle of least privilege.

WHAT TO DO IF A TEST FAILS

If Drata finds that your company policies are either not available or do not require that employees may only access the customer data they need in order to complete their jobs the test will fail.

To remediate a failed test, you will need to make sure that the appropriate policies are uploaded to Drata and contain specific requirements for ensuring access to customer data is only granted when absolutely necessary to complete a job.

STEPS TO REMEDIATE

  1. Navigate to the Policy Center.

  2. Add a 'System Access Control Policy' and ensure that the newly added policy is approved.
