The People Operations Management system sends a notification to relevant personnel, or system, in the event of a termination of an information system user. Notification can be manual or automated.
The purpose of this control is to ensure there is a process in place to remove access to user accounts that is no longer necessary. The People Operations Management system is the source-of-record for the status of GitLab teammembers and therefore, any changes to status need to be communicated to downstream systems in order to ensure proper logical access management. This control helps ensure that only authorized and active accounts can be accessed and used to prevent any unauthorized use or access of GitLab customer, GitLab teammember, and partner data.
This control applies to any system or service where user accounts can be provisioned.
Non-public information relating to this security control as well as links to the work associated with various phases of project work can be found in the Terminations: People Resources Notifications control issue.
