Taking the decision to install an IP CCTV control system for access in your business’ premises might be one of the best financial decisions you’ve ever made for your company.
The benefits of additional security include:
- Reducing the likelihood of theft of valuables
- Securing sensitive documentation
- Enabling easier management of staff shift patterns.
Here is a helpful guide to the three main types of systems that could drastically benefit your business.
1. Discretionary Access Control (DAC)
With DAC, the owner of a business is responsible for deciding which staff members are allowed where in a building. This is the least restrictive type of access control
Perfect for: Smaller businesses where an owner will know every employee and what access they require, as well a business that does not carry extremely sensitive or classified material.
2. Mandatory Access Control (MAC)
The MAC system is the most stringent form of access control and involves all end-users being classified and given labels that allow them to access different areas under established security guidelines.
Perfect for: Organisations that have a significant or elevated requirement for confidentiality of data or materials, such as the military or research organisations.
3. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
In the RBAC system, the system administrator assigns access to different parts of a building based on any staff member’s role in the company.
For example, the role of a developer within a company will have certain access privileges and if any person is assigned to be a developer, they will automatically gain access to those areas.
This system saves time and effort by assigning access by job type, rather than tailoring it to individual people.
Perfect for: Businesses with large numbers of employees in set and defined roles
To make the decision about the best type of access control for your business, talk to a specialist expert before you commit to any payment.
