IT teams have become accustomed to using remote desktop tools to support users, work on servers from home, and to even avoid walking down the hall to the server room. But cybercriminals are keenly aware of how to leverage this protocol (RDP) – from both inside your network and out – making it a dangerous choice for privileged access.

So, exactly how does RDP pose a threat, and what should you do about it? In this on-demand webcast security expert, Nick Cavalancia, explores:

  • RDP: the good, the bad, the risky
  • Why cybercriminals love RDP
  • Balancing the need for remote access and privileged access
If you’re using RDP and haven’t given privileged access risk a second thought or have concerns about RDP use in your own environment, definitely check out this webinar to gain applicable insights and best practices.
