Security and Controls Consulting Services
Assessment & Remediation Services
A full review of your security architecture conducted by Symmetry’s expert consultants can provide insight into vulnerability in your architecture. Symmetry’s experts can then provide recommendations to mitigate those risks or implement the required security architecture changes.
Security Architecture Design & Implementation
The connections between Roles, Transactions and Segregation of Duties rules are complex. Security architectures that develop organically, only as business needs arise, result in a system so cumbersome that maintaining compliance becomes increasingly difficult.
Symmetry’s strategic approach to security architecture design (and re-design) looks at your business requirements now and in the future. The Symmetry Security Redesign Process incorporates four phases:
- the design of Roles in accordance with audit requirements and SAP best practices;
- role construction;
- a testing phase; and
- security training for Role Owners.
While our security redesign process is based on a fixed price per role, we believe that a simplified architecture, based on fewer roles will not only lower your implementation costs, but also require less maintenance in the future.
