Authorisation

 

The process whereby a person approves a specific event or action. In companies with access rights hierarchies it is important that audit trails identify both the creator and the authoriser of new or amended data. It is an unacceptably high risk situation for an individual to have the power to create new entries and then to authorise those same entries themselves.
