Analyst(s): Information Risk Research Team


Intel has reduced the controls burden for employees by redesigning access architecture to fit the way employees actually work by incorporating multiple situational factors into access decisions and designing graded access to applications can ensure employees have secure (if limited) access to information in a wider variety of situations. This case study will help you to incorporate multiple situational factors into access decisions, develop fine-grained rules that target protection where it is needed most, enable graded, rather than binary, access to applications, and avoid employee frustration through education and change management.
