Data Access and Roles

The Data Access and Roles Task Force of the Data Management Committee has defined a “roles” based access mechanism to data in the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)  The EDW consolidates data from multiple source systems in support of campus wide decision-making. Appropriate Data Custodians have classified the data in the EDW into roles according to security principles identified in the Information Security Controls and Operational Practices statement, like “Access of Least Privilege” and “Separation of Duties.”

To see the current role designations refer to the Security Access and Roles Matrix document for a high level overview of the access privileges that are assigned to each role.
