How Access Control Works (1)

What is Access Control?

Access control is the selective restriction of access to a place or other resource. It consists of two main components: authentication and authorization.

Authentication is a technique used to verify that someone is who they claim to be. Once a individual has been verified, authorization determines if that individual should be allowed to access the jobsite or facility that they're attempting to enter into based on their credentials, certifications, and/or requirements.

As a result, access control minimizes the risk of unauthorized access to physical and computer systems. This ensures the safety of authorized personnel and prevents the theft of data, assets, etc.
