Christopher A. Moturi the head of School of Computing and Informatics at the University of Nairobi, who has vast experience in teaching and researching on databases and information systems audit published a featured paper on the ISACA Journal VOLUME 3, 2013, together with Fredrick O. Bitta, CISA, who is an IT auditor with the Central Bank of Kenya and has more than seven years of experience in T24, SAP and Oracle post-implementation review as well as database and operating systems audit.
The Journal article was about a Multiagent Model for System User Access Rights Audit.
The proposed multiagent model for consistent systemuser access rights audit is useful in addressing the threat from within the organization relating to application access violations. It combines the three major concerns on access
to information systems—access policy, user roles as captured in the job description, and the actual user access to the system—to develop a tool that is of significance to the key stakeholders. This model can be used by IS auditors to provide independent assurance with regard to application access policies and system-user job descriptions within an
organization. IS managers could proactively use the model to consistently review authorized system-user access within the application, thus ensuring compliance with the set standards. The proposed model for user access rights audit fits well in the context of most organizations because it captures all the key elements required to consistently monitor application access violations. Further work could be done to make the model real time—by designing an interface between the tool and the organization’s database application for continuous monitoring. The model could also be enhanced with an interface to other auditing software for purposes of real-time reporting and escalation of access violations to management for appropriate and timely action.
ISACA Kenya chapter congratulates Mr. Moturi and Bitta for the great article.
