Striking the balance between enabling users and administrators to be productive whilst protecting your sensitive systems and data is becoming ever more challenging. Attackers are often one step ahead of organisations, and even those with the most comprehensive security systems and controls in place find that an attacker will discover and exploit their Achilles Heel.

This is the first session in a series of webinars that will provide practical steps to enable organisations to successfully implement industry recognised best practices and foundational security controls to secure IT systems and data against the most pervasive attacks. It will provide tips to successfully implement a strategy of least privilege, allowing you to eliminate unnecessary privileges and elevate rights across multi platforms and networked devices without hindering end-user productivity, firmly shutting the door on attackers.


  • Recommendations to implement foundational security controls & best practices
  • Practical steps to successfully deliver a least privilege strategy
  • How to successfully balance security and productivity
