Presentation number 10 by Michelle Homes, Metacoda

Copenhagen, 15 June 2017



You have got your SAS environments installed, configured, and running smoothly. Time to relax and put your feet up, right? Not so fast! There is still one more leg to go on your security journey. After the deployment of your initial security plan, the security audit process provides active and regular monitoring and ensures that your environment remains secure. There are many reasons to carry out security audits: to ensure regulatory compliance, to maintain business confidence, and to keep your SAS platform as per the design specifications. This presentation is a reduced version of the SAS Global Forum 2017 paper: SAS Metadata Security 301: Auditing your SAS Environment by Charyn Faenza and Michelle Homes. We look at some of the available ways to regularly review your environment to ensure that protected resources are not at risk, to comply with security auditing requirements, and to quickly and easily answer the question ‘Who has access to what?’ through efficient SAS metadata security management using Metacoda software.
