ACC Project Security Concern on Allowing External Members as Project Admin

June 12, 2023 Gregory Lee


Allowing external project members to be promoted to Project Admin may pose security concerns, as they could potentially gain access to the company's clients list and cause a data breach.


The Account admin has the ability to grant Project admin access to create projects and project templates. Once this feature is enabled, any member with Project admin access can access the partner company list. 

If the ACC host company adds company data to any ACC project, this information becomes available under the company column in the Project Template. 


Currently, there is no solution to this issue. However, the account admin should be aware of the potential risk of allowing external members to have project admin access and enabling the project creation feature.
