What is Authorization?

Authorization is the process of validating and providing permission or authority to a user to have access to a resource, such as information or system. Authorization generally comes after authentication.

Authorization is relevant to the CIPT certification.  See the CIPT Body of Knowledge: IV. Privacy in systems and applications, B. Identity and access management: https://iapp.org/media/pdf/certification/CIPT_BOK_2.1.2.pdf
