Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video Provisioning and deprovisioning, part of CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) Cert Prep: 4 Identity and Access Management.
- [Instructor] Account administrators are responsible…for managing the provisioning…and deprovisioning of user accounts.…This involves two core activities.…When a new user joins the organization,…administrators ensure that they go through…the appropriate onboarding process…and then they provision a user account for that individual.…This involves creating authentication credentials…and granting the user appropriate authorizations…based upon their job function.…Then when a user leaves the organization,…administrators ensure that they go through…an offboarding process…that includes deprovisioning the account…to remove their credentials and authorizations…at the appropriate time.…
If account administrators fail…to precisely time the access revocation,…two undesirable situations may occur.…First, if the account is terminated…before the employee is informed of his or her termination,…the employee may gain advance notice…of the impending termination…and take retaliatory action against the employer.…Second, if the account is not terminated immediately…
