5 Hidden Pitfalls of DIY Access Control Development and How to Avoid Them

Build V. Buy: Organizations that attempt to build their own access control internally often overlook or significantly underestimate the effort required to build, operate, and maintain security, functionality, and compliance in their DIY solutions. This is particularly true for regulated entities where internal development efforts undervalue the burden of compliance with internal audits or regulatory regimes (e.g. PCI, GDPR, SEC, CFTC, HIPAA, and so on).

In this webinar, you will learn about 5 Hidden Pitfalls of DIY Development, including human, technical, competitive, opportunity, and risk associated costs, and how your team can avoid them altogether with a commercially available externalized authorization solution.

While protecting data is paramount, that requirement must be balanced with the need to share certain information across a variety of use case scenarios within and across agencies/departments.
