Synopsis and overview of the session
Did you know – Privileged Accounts are the #1 target for hackers in cyber-attacks. Every organisation faces cyber security challenges and risks, but not every organisation is the same in how they approach protecting themselves and mitigating the risk. Despite this, there are some underlying best practices (and worst practices) in relation to privileged access management that every organisation should be aware of.
Focus Network, in partnership with Thycotic, will be bringing leading IT Security executives to discuss Thycotic’s Privileged Access Management (PAM) Maturity Model, which defines four phases from ‘analog ’ to ‘adaptive intelligent’, this session discusses the best (and worst) practices for organisations in each stage, drawn from use cases of Thycotic’s clients across Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.
