Privileged accounts: the most powerful backdoor used by hackers

Presented by

Grant Burst and Chad Carter

About this talk

Privileged accounts can be some of the most serious threats your company can face. As more and more processes are digitalized and activities externalized, the number of accounts accessing critical and strategic information escalates, extending the cyber threat across continents. Meanwhile, companies and individuals are becoming increasingly aware that any data or server can be accessed with the right privileges; it is therefore imperative to know who accesses critical resources, as well as when and why they do so to avoid any leak. By monitoring the users holding the keys to the kingdom - the privileged users, we are able to know what exactly happened on a system at any given time and how. Whether malicious or negligent, incidents caused by internal or external threats can be avoided quickly if visibility over the IS is restored. Session monitoring and recording dissuades malicious or negligent users while offering real-time alerts, traceability, and post-mortem analysis. Discover how some of the most dramatic cyberattacks to date could have been prevented had there been a Privileged Access Management solution in place to protect and secure target systems.
