What is Access Certification in cyber security?

The process of verifying and validating user access rights.

Access certification is a process where an organization reviews and verifies user access rights to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to specific systems and data. This helps maintain security and compliance by periodically checking and validating that access permissions are appropriate and up-to-date. It involves reviewing user roles, permissions, and entitlements to identify and revoke unnecessary or outdated access. Regular access certification helps prevent unauthorized access and reduce security risks.
