Breaking The Attack Chain – Privileged Accounts are at the center of the attack Lifecycle
Regardless of where an attack originates, be it from a malicious insider such as a disgruntled employee or a targeted external attacker who has broken in through a phishing attack, skilled attackers will end up on the inside. How can we best manage our Privileged accounts to prevent them from following their standard operating procedure, and break the attack chain with proper management of privilege in our environment?
Join Allan Cox of CyberArk to learn how to secure the most traveled cyber attack route – the privileged pathway. Allan will walk through real-life examples where attackers gain complete control of an organization or IT infrastructure – and show how a privilege solution could have prevented the attack.
