Slashing the Cost of IT Access Reviews and the TCO of Audit Tools

Presented by

Josh Linder - Security Product Analyst

About this talk

Auditing is a necessary, but expensive, process. Beyond traditional financial and physical security audits, the recent explosion of remote work has shined a light on the need to secure – and validate – identities and permissions. To securely manage remote workers, IT staffs must perform periodical IT Access Review audits to determine that only the right users in the proper roles are accessing various corporate resources. To cope with ballooning external risks, businesses must also turn to DRP (Digital Risk Protection) services in order to get the full picture of the organization's overall risk profile. Of course, both IT Access Reviews and DRP audits are costly endeavors. Worse, those costs can easily spiral out of control because there are so many unknowns involved with each audit. What will be found? What won’t be discovered, and which audit findings must be remediated? Beyond those unknowns lies uncertainty around cost itself. Traditional auditing firms have, for years, utilized re-assigned (and overworked) IT workers to perform audits and craft reports. However, there is a better way: tools exist to improve the efficacy and reduce the cost of the audit process, while also eliminating dangerous blind spots across governance, risk, and compliance. In this webinar, we'll talk to a security analyst and cost analysis expert to learn: - What is the value of utilizing auditing accelerators? - How can we quantify the complexity of our current processes? - How do we justify the investment in automation? - What are the financial implications of doing nothing? - What is the risk of an overlooked credential/access mistake?
