Passwords are a primary means by which organizations help ensure access for those who need it, while keeping out potential attackers and others who lack proper authorization. While passwords are a fundamental piece of authentication,, organizations struggle mightily in implementing and enforcing strong password security. In one recent example of egregious password management malpractice, a Fortune 50 company’s external severs were found to have simple and default passwords on them, such as “password”.

The stakes are even higher when it comes to privileged users and accounts, but this is actually the area where organizations struggle the most. In this webinar with industry expert Dr. Eric Cole, learn how to rein in password sprawl and enforce best practices for privileged password management to dial down your organization’s cyber risk, while also better positioning you to meet increasingly stringent compliance demands. Tune in to learn:

  • Simple fixes to common cybersecurity privileged credential errors and oversights
  • How implementing layers of privilege management helps prevent hacker intrusions
  • Privileged password management concepts and tactics, and how to build access barriers
  • How to Identify the improper use of password encryption methods and how to fix them
