Presented by

Raj Dodhiawala, President, Remediant, Inc.

About this talk

Every system in your organization requires administration and therefore, requires one or more privileged accounts provisioned on it so it can be administered per the policies and requirements of your organization. Over time, the number of privileged accounts get bloated, and with always-on/always-available admin access, the end result is uncontrollable privilege sprawl. With 74% of breaches involving a privileged account, according to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, overprivileged access can pose a significant risk to your organization. The Privilege Sprawl Index is an indicator of risk due to the proliferation and 24×7 availability of admin accounts that make it possible for attackers to first land on, and then move laterally to reach systems that host sensitive data. In this webinar, we will present a method to model the Privilege Sprawl Index along with its impact on attack surface and lateral movement. You will learn strategies for how to achieve a Privilege Sprawl Index of zero, which is imperative to reaching Zero Trust.
