Classified documents/Information question?

I'm looking for a technical way to describe how access is given to people in a computer system of privileged information.

For example, in the wikileaks case regarding the leaked cables there was a failure of ________ that allowed the PFC Manning to obtain access to classified documents.

Unclear I know but any attempt to guide me in the right direction is appreciated. Thanks

    From what I remember hearing, the information is on a network so that many departments can access it. Thousands of people had the ability to call it up.

    Most very secure companies don't put usb ports or cd/dvd drives on computers that can access sensitive information.

    So a simple failure in following standard protocols for securing information.

    Of course, having unethical politicians, and diplomats helped in generating such a volume of crap.
