Privileged Identities

Cyber Security Experts Stage


Cloud environments are widely adopted because of the powerful, flexible infrastructure and efficient use of resources they provide to organizations of all sizes. Whether organizations are using private, public or hybrid cloud environments for infrastructure or software-as-a-service, the common goal is to achieve operational and cost benefits without giving up full control over infrastructure and data. Introducing a real challenge, privileged accounts in cloud environments are at a critical juncture of control and management because once an unauthorized user has access to privileged account credentials, control over the entire infrastructure is in the hands of the attacker. This is where securing privileged accounts plays a critical role in securing cloud environments and meeting audit and compliance requirements. This presentation will focus on common challenges and appropriate solutions while dealing with privileged accounts in modern cloud architectures and DevOps environments.

Privileged accounts are at the heart of all major recent breaches and traditional IAM techniques are ineffective in stopping these attacks. Novel hybrid IAM/PAM and Cybersecurity techniques are required to contain the ever-evolving persistent threats we operate under.

A multi-phased approach will be outlined which addresses key critical vulnerabilities first and then details a path to steadily increase the maturity of an organization’s approach to Privileged Account Management.
