What is RBAC?

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) controls access to digital resources according to users' roles within the organization.

RBAC is useful for restricting access to sensitive information online. Companies can use role-based access control tools to protect their online content and data, build user trust and enhance their online reputation.

RBAC is very useful for applying the principle of least privilege in a group with a control model where every access decision is based on the user's role.
