Large financial firms with thousands of employees face many challenges ensuring workers have access to the right information, yet controlling access to unneeded data. We examine the problems of role lifecycle management and entitlement review processes in the context of large financial institutions. We describe observations from field study research in both retail and investment banks. We examine technologies to enable role and entitlement management and present a roadmap for future research.
