In his presentation "Less Is More: Implementing the Security Best Practices of Least Privilege," Saurabh will discuss how IT can reduce the risks associated with administrative privileges without inhibiting productivity by creating a lockdown environment.

Each year professionals from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana meet at TRISC to share experiences, learn and network.
"Enterprises know they can't allow users to run freely with administrative access. Not only can malware, spyware, rootkits and viruses leverage that access to change system settings, but users themselves tweak the standard desktop configuration in ways the result in excessive help desk tickets," said Saurabh Bhatnagar, VP of product management, BeyondTrust. "The challenge they face is both protecting the user from themselves without going into a lockdown mode where the user can't do anything. You can achieve security that way, but it results in even more help desk tickets from users just trying to change their system clock or connect to a wireless network."
