- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Security and risk management leaders need to balance the significant security risks associated with unmanaged privileged access against the administrative and other operational efficiencies achieved by conventional privileged access management practices.
Poorly managed privileged access not only leaves organizations exposed to security breaches but can also attract severe business losses and financial penalties resulting from regulatory conflicts and compliance deficits. Privilege Management has emerged as an area of growing concern and investment for most organizations trying to gain a better control of unmanaged and unsupervised access to their assets, especially in a hybrid IT environment.
In this webinar, we will discuss the evolving landscape of privilege management technologies along with the best implementation practices for a sustainable and risk-aware privilege management solution.
- What are the primary drivers for organizations to implement privilege management?
- What key privilege management technologies are available in the market?
- What are the best practices for managing privileged access?

When it comes to identity management many companies depend heavily on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). This high degree of dependency on one service can become a problem when this service faces an outage. Also, respective of the requirements companies have, all services have certain limitations which are sometimes necessary to overcome. Many cyberattacks are perpetrated via staff endpoint devices (computers, smartphones or even printers). This necessitates a fine-mesh risk management approach with a centralized solution, called Identity Fabric at KuppingerCole.
