Movers – Employees change departments or job functions requiring that there accounts be re-provisioned so that the access they are granted is appropriate for their new situation.
Suspensions – During vacations, medical leaves, military deployments, investigations or other periods or when other events occur that require users be denied access the system accounts – those accounts need to be suspended so that security and best practices are continuously enforced.
