Privilege is Everywhere–Why You Need a Universal Privilege Management Framework

Presented by

James Quick, Director, Solutions & Advisory at Simeio Solutions, and Dan DeRosa, Chief Product Officer at BeyondTrust

About this talk

Virtually every cybersecurity breach today involves the exploitation of privileged access. Privileges are initially exploited to infiltrate an IT environment, and once compromised by threat actors, privileges are further leveraged to move laterally, access assets, install malware, inflict damage, and exfiltrate sensitive data. What is privileged access? It used to be just admin accounts, root access, DBA accounts. But today? Every account should be viewed as privileged, including service accounts, IoT device accounts, and even ordinary user accounts logging in to laptops or desktops. In this session, we’ll explore how an innovative Universal Privilege Management model can be used to secure every user, session, and asset across your IT environment. We’ll consider: •Why passwords alone aren’t good enough •How you can use privileged access security controls to disrupt the cyberattack chain •Ways to reduce your risk surface •And most significantly, how and why you should make PAM easy and frictionless for your end users
