Manage policies

This topic describes how to manage policies in Privilege Cloud in order to meet your organization's security policies and standards, and automatically apply password rules.

The Master Policy

The Master Policy enables you to define a baseline for how to manage accounts in your organization.

The Master Policy holds the global policy settings. Each policy rule has settings that are displayed when you select the rule. For details, see Set the Master Policy.

Although Master Policy can be applied to most privileged accounts in your organization, you can create rule exceptions to manage specific workflows. For example, you can define a dual-control workflow for highly sensitive accounts on a specific platform that require permission from authorized users before they can be used, while access to other accounts in the organization does not require such confirmation. For details, see Create exceptions to Master Policy.
