Separation of duties is an important security best practice. Separation of duties (SoD) is where an organization creates different roles for very important tasks. For example, a system administrator should not have the role of an auditor. The reason you separate these roles is because there is a conflict of interest where the system administrator auditing their own system will not be able to be completely objective when performing an assessment.
