February 2018 Chapter Meeting

Posted by Administrator Friday, February 2, 2018

Beyond Password Management:  Seven Steps to an Effective Privilege Program

Management of passwords, keys, and secrets is being addressed within every organization in one way or another (or many), but does your privilege account management program really keep attackers from fulfilling their mission ... or does it just make administration less cumbersome?  We will explore the common elements in nearly every high-profile breach and how compromised credentials were necessary to the overall "success" of the attack.  More importantly, we will discuss the steps every organization can take to reach an acceptable level of "cyber-hygiene" within their privilege program.
