Identity Governance: The Security of Privileged Users

Dr. Larry Ponemon, Founder, Ponemon Institute
Results from the soon to be released Global Study on the Security of Privileged Users, sponsored by HP Enterprise Security and independently conducted by the Ponemon Institute, examines the inherent risk caused by a lack of control and oversight of privileged users in the workplace and what should be done to minimize this risk. The study surveyed privileged users who are defined as having broad access rights to IT networks, enterprise systems, applications and information assets based on their roles and responsibilities within their organization.

This Webinar, featuring Dr. Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute, will help organizations better understand the state of access governance in global organizations and the likelihood privileged users will abuse or misuse IT resources. Dr Ponemon will highlight key findings from this highly informative benchmark study, including:

• The critical success factors for governing, managing and controlling privileged user access across the enterprise
• How recent changes in the IT ecosystem affect the need for strong authentication and network intelligence technologies, including SIEM
• Security technologies considered critical to controlling privileged user access to IT resources

  • Why Vendor-driven Threat Intelligence is not Sufficient Anymore Recorded: Mar 11 2014 43 mins
    While threat intelligence promises to help with the effective detection of advanced threats, it usually achieves the opposite: detecting the most predictable attackers. To be included as part of a vendor provided threat intelligence feed, an attacker must have tried attacking several potential victims before, and must have used the exact same method to be captured in the threat intelligence feed.

    In this presentation we will see how to make threat intelligence valuable for detecting advanced targeted threats directly aimed at your organization. We will see how to create a threat intelligence feed close to the target, as a shared effort between departments, subsidiaries or organizations working closely together to ensure identification of targeted threats. In addition we will see how to extend the term intelligence into additional detection mechanisms such as behavioral patterns.

  • Addressing Advanced Threats with a Joined-Up Security Approach Recorded: Dec 5 2013 39 mins
    With the modern and emerging threat landscape, it is clear that adding more and more layers isn’t going to provide the answers that it once did. Using a joined-up approach, it is possible to start to build a true solution that helps manage the risks and threats, and to provide visibility that wasn’t previously possible. Addressing security at the network and application layers and proving a real-time view of the risks and threats as they happen, it’s now possible to start to address these new emerging threats.

    Importantly though, by using this approach, it is possible to be prepared today and tomorrow to provide pro-active identification and resolution to the threats.

  • Your VP Just Resigned, What Did He Take With Him? Recorded: Apr 17 2013 49 mins
    Your VP just resigned and took a position at your biggest competitor. Did you remember to examine the Salesforce logs to see if he downloaded your entire customer database and history of purchases? Do you even have access to those logs? And if you did, and found the obvious, how would it help now? Catching Bradley Manning who stole sensitive government information, Ross Klein who took with him an entire hotel brand concept and Gary Min that copied chemical formulas was too late for the US government, DuPont and Starwood hotels respectively.

    In this presentation we look into how to proactively monitor user activity to detect potential threats from employees before the damage occurs. Focusing on how to effectively collect activity logs and analyze them against user, role and entitlement information, to detect abnormal activity, predict which employees may pose more threat if not loyal and to reduce the associated risk.
