What is lost when an organization suffers from malicious attacks or the penalties of a regulatory fine? Money, credibility, and business continuity.
Ok, you even take good care of your company’s information services, try to recycle the culture of good practices among the users of the corporate system, do reports and access analysis… This union of zeal with awareness is great!
Just don’t forget that there are two elements with you, one on each side: cyber attackers and data protection regulations.
The first ones want you to share secrets with them: who are the employees, partners, customers and how is their routine; how do they access systems and how do they behave on networks, for example. They are like a “stalker” focusing on the privileged credentials of the corporate environment.
The second ones want you not to fall into the trap of the first ones: local and global laws want your company to protect data to comply with information security guidelines, thus blocking the risks of leaks and cyber attacks and safeguarding society.
According to Verizon, 61% of cyber attacks have taken place via these privileged credentials. To protect these “keys to the kingdom,” which give commands over critical configuration and domain actions, adopting a Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution is ideal for centralizing controls and limiting user privileges.
According to Gartner, by this year 2022, 70% of the world’s organizations will implement PAM practices.
