About this talk

One of the basic principles in information security is the Principle of Least Privilege. The idea is simple: give every user and system the minimal amount of access required to perform their tasks - yet every day security practitioners struggle with the balance of access and security. This talk analyses how privilege escalation occurs as a result of overreaching permissions, the various tooling and strategies used to achieve this goal, and the challenges involved with the creation of such tooling.
