With many years of cyberattack data now sliced, diced, dissected, and in our pocket, a clear picture has emerged of what nearly every external attack looks like. A key part of that picture almost invariably includes the eventual compromise of elevated credentials, which puts privileged accounts at risk. So, how can you prepare for, protect, and prevent what will inevitably take the shape of “an inside job?” In this interactive webcast, join industry expert Nick Cavalancia, from Techvangelism, as he explores the critical cyber-defense components for insider-type attacks, including:

  • Preparation – How at-risk are your credentials, and where should you be putting your focus?
  • Protection – Which privileged credentials are at-risk, and what constitutes “privileged”, anyway?
  • Prevention – What steps need to be taken to keep privileged accounts from becoming compromised?

As Nick will demonstrate, by boosting protection against insider-type attacks, you will also help dismantle external-originating attacks, should they breach your perimeter.
