Data breaches and cyber threats pose significant risks in the modern interconnected business landscape, which has made data certifications like SOC2 and ISO-27001 essential to ensure data security and compliance. In this article, we will explore how Hire2Retire can help achieve and maintain SOC2 and ISO-27001 compliance.
Both SOC2 and ISO-27001 certifications address data security and privacy challenges for businesses. While there are differences, both certifications share common objectives including ensuring the availability, confidentiality, and integrity of information through authorized data and system access. Hire2Retire plays a vital role in helping organizations achieve and maintain SOC2 and ISO-27001 compliance through features and functionalities that directly contribute to their compliance efforts.
Hire2Retire enables implementation of granular access controls, ensuring that only authorized and required employees have access to sensitive data and systems.
It implements – access control (RBAC) by assigning privileges based on the characteristics or attributes of the employees like job role, department, location, cost center, or others that collectively identify the role or privileges of a certain employee. These role assignments are dynamic and are enforced continuously as the employee profile changes. This ensures consistent and continuous enforcement of access controls and reduces the risk of unauthorized data exposure.
This dynamic assignment of role-based access control extends to enable Microsoft Group Based Licensing, Single Sign On (SSO) and third-party application provisioning (or SCIM provisioning) with one time setup at the organization level.
Hire2Retire generates detailed audit trails that track employment lifecycle changes and resulting identity changes in the roles and privileges that control access to data and systems. These audit trails provide transparent records for compliance audits, demonstrating accountability and traceability in data and access management processes. These audit trails also check the box of compliance requirements of keeping track of employee lifecycle and associated identity and access changes as required by SOC2 and ISO-27001 and similar certifications.
By leveraging Hire2Retire’s capabilities, organizations can streamline their compliance processes across the organization and demonstrate their commitment to data security and privacy. Hire2Retire also automates many of the controls and the measurements that need to be in place to meet ISO-27001 and SOC2 requirement at no additional cost while managing employee lifecycle and identity provisioning from HRIS to AD or Azure AD.
