Due to the growing use of SaaS applications, you no longer have to wait for the expert IT guys to choose, evaluate and install the apps before giving access to use them. This has brought much independence to many businesses and their non-IT employees. While great for the general employees, it’s frustrating for IT professionals who have to handle the offboarding of employees leaving the company.
The IT Manager will need to gather a list of all the apps used by the offboarding employee to reassign and revoke permissions to apps that hold company data. Miss just one of these steps and you leave yourself open and vulnerable to paying for unused licenses and expose the organization to security and compliance risks. More than that, we all like to see an uncluttered dashboard. We hate those tasks that are just never 100% complete. Offboarding tends to be one of those never-ending tasks.
Here are ten critical steps for a smooth and easy IT employee offboarding process that covers all the bases, keeping you and your department safe and secure.
- Revoke system access from IdP and SSO
- Close employee SaaS accounts
- Terminate VPN and review any remote access methods
- Change/revoke shared account’s passwords
- Change the system’s ownership
- Forward employee’s email address
- Recover company equipment and assets
- Reclaim employee licenses
- Update credit card payments
- Schedule account deletion for suspended accounts.
