What the Sleeping Security Guard Taught me about Privileged Account Management w/ Drew Maness, Chief Strategist at Cypro Solutions
October 22, 2014
10am PT/1pm ET

A decade ago "Convergence" – the combining of physical and digital security – was heavily debated by the greater Infosec community. Convergence never really took traction. While similar in their tactics; loss prevention and cyber security’s approach to solving their respective problems are different. What could the IT Security professional have to learn from the sleeping security guard?

During this webcast, Drew Maness, Chief Strategist at Cypro Solutions, will discuss how his experience running a dual Loss Prevention and Digital Content Protection program enhanced his approach to cyber security and privileged account management. Drew will walk attendees through the importance of fusing together the concepts of physical security, workflow data classification, least privilege, and vulnerability management.

During this webcast Drew will also discuss:

  • Why identifying workflow and data movements is critical to internal and external risk reduction
  • Understanding the insider threat
  • How physical controls should complement your least privilege strategy
  • How to implement a holistic vulnerability and privilege management blueprint

This webcast is ideal for any IT Security professional interested in practical lessons from the real-life successes (and failures) of a true veteran in the field.

We'll also explore how more attention to privileged account and vulnerability management can play a big role in getting a handle on these types of issues in your own environments.
