    Question Does your company have policies or procedures for use of Access? Willing to share?

    Hi All,
    Working on a project within our company to improve the ongoing management of Access databases (oversight, content and upgrade management).

    The problem:
    -Thousands of Access databases have propagated, some handling sensitive data not supported by IT

    How do you design standards, policies or procedures to "guide" future development and catalog usage without unecessary restrictions?

    Anyone else out there dealing with risk assessment in this area?

    Thanks and all the best,
    Old Bay

    Well, first I would figure out why I have thousands of databases and whether that can be reduced. The fewer databases you have, the easier it will be to secure them, the less risk they will all pose.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
