About the webinar
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and we acknowledge it with two sessions addressed to M&E and IM professionals who wish to increase their knowledge and confidence in regards to data security. The first session addresses the top five data security risks that professionals working with data should be aware of and the second session will dive into best practices for designing roles in the ActivityInfo platform.
During this webinar we discuss how effectively designed Roles can minimize security risks while maximizing the value that users can get out of the data. We look at specific examples and best practices that you can adjust to your team structures and program, project, country, region or team needs.
In summary, we explore:
- Principles for granting permission
- Understanding how roles work in ActivityInfo
How to design effective roles:
- Permitted operations and access to resources
- Setting up conditions to define allowed record-level operations
As well as:
- Adding parameters to roles
- Managing reference data
- User management best practices

On October 19th, there will be an Office Hour session on Designing roles, where we will address more questions about specific use cases and examples.
