Privileged Access Management: Top Ten Mistakes
The privileged access environment is complex, and it has constantly evolved over the years to support changing enterprise IT use-cases. In this backdrop, the role of privileged access management is no more confined to system administrators and root admins.
The role and significance of privileged access management has percolated down to many IT processes that require administrative level or elevated access to confidential information, database and secrets.
Nevertheless, far too often, organizations invest in privileged access management tools without having well-defined rules/policies around people and processes.
It resultantly leads to a proliferation of security blind spots in the privileged access environment. Consequently, it results in noncompliance of regulatory mandates or even worse, a data breach.
The implementation of privileged access management (PAM) can only be effective if the Information Security team in charge for Identity and Access Management ensures an unambiguous set of ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ around people and process.
No PAM tool can be effective unless the organization carefully builds an established PAM framework within its IT periphery.
The whitepaper, “Privileged Access Management: Top Ten Mistakes”, points out some of the most common mistakes made in an enterprise PAM environment and how those mistakes can be avoided.
