Presented by

About this talk

Gartner has predicted that 75% of security failures will result in inadequate management of identities, access, and privileges by 2023. We can trace the root of these identity and access management (IAM) failures to two factors. One lies in lax permission guidelines. In our latest Unit 42 Cloud Threat Report, 99% of identities have excessive permissions. As to the second, adversaries have various means to get into a cloud environment and take advantage of overly permissive privileges to launch vicious attacks. Improve your cloud IAM stance by tuning into this session. You will gain insights on: o Dissecting cloud threat actors and their techniques to compromise cloud environments o Understanding how native Cloud Service providers tackle permissive issues o vVsualizing over-permissive identities and automatic right-sizing to least-privilege mode, with a live demo.
