It’s a new year and time for a new weekly series. This one takes a look at easy security fixes for Dynamics GP.
Security gets a lot of attention around year-end, and many companies know that their GP security settings aren’t the best that they could be. There are plenty of good reasons for this, but I’m not here to point fingers, I’m here to help.
Realistically, there are lots of things companies should do to setup security the right way in GP. These include understanding processes, mapping processes to job functions, tying job functions to Roles and Tasks in GP and reviewing the whole pile for segregations of duties conflicts. But not everyone understand the incredible value built when you setup security the right way, and sometimes, you just need to make some progress now.
This series isn’t about doing everything right, it’s about doing something now that makes you safer tomorrow than you were yesterday. It’s the “I know I should I should eat right and exercise, but how do I lose 5 pounds by Friday?” approach to GP security.
In this series I’m going to focus on fast security fixes around:
- Journal Entries
- Account Maintenance
- Fiscal Periods
- Bank Transactions and Reconciliation
- Vendor and Customer Maintenance
- Customer Payments
- 3 Way Match
- Item Maintenance
- Bonus: What’s the job? Really?
We’ll do one a week for eight weeks and then we’ll play with something new. Links to each item will be added once the post is up.
