Roadmap to Segregation of Duty Compliance with Dynamics AX, Part I: Goals and Objectives
As Microsoft Dynamics AX capabilities expand, so too does the need to efficiently manage its security and the risks associated with its information and access.
Segregation of duties (SoD) is a powerful approach for minimizing risk and improper access to information. In addition to reducing auditing cost, implementing a robust SoD prevents individuals from completing a business process or sub-process on their own; without checks and approval steps, an organization exposes itself to the risk of an individual committing fraud. The classic example is that the same person should not both create a vendor and process payments for that vendor.
