Salesforce: Roles & Controls

Webcast overview

Due to the growing versatility of Salesforce-based apps, companies use Salesforce’s cloud not only as a traditional Customer Relationship Management application to store confidential customer information, such as contact details and account details, but also as a platform to conduct sales, run supply chains, manage critical Human Capital Management process, and maintain records of underlying financial transactions including customer billing information.

Application roles and internal controls are the fundamental building blocks to protecting this information.  Roles align user access to business processes to ensure data integrity and separation of duties.

 Join KPMG for a webcast on August 11, focused on designing roles and controls for Salesforce.

Agenda items:

  • Designing a role based user access program
  • User administration, governance and authentication
  • Common risk scenarios to avoid (over privileged accounts and seeded roles)
  • Release management strategies

During this webcast you will have the opportunity to learn about the KPMG Application Security & Controls framework, a cross-application view of cloud application security and controls. It is positioned to help industry-leading organizations effectively balance the divergent tasks of leveraging modern applications to empower business users while simultaneously protecting sensitive data and transactions.
