Identity Defined Security Alliance Member Webinar: Remediant Presents Privilege Sprawl Index; Modeling Privilege Access Sprawl for Zero Trust

DENVER - Nov. 17, 2021 - PRLog -- WHAT: The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) provides frameworks and practical guidance to help organizations put identity at the center of their IT security strategy. In this live webinar presented by IDSA member Remediant, President Raj Dodhiawala will discuss strategies for how to achieve a "Privilege Sprawl Index" of zero, which is imperative to reaching Zero Trust.

WHEN: Thursday, December 16th, 9 am PT/12pm ET

WHY: According to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 74% of breaches involve a privileged account. Every system in your organization requires administration and therefore, requires one or more privileged accounts provisioned on it so it can be administered per the policies and requirements of your organization. Over time, the number of privileged accounts get bloated, and with always-on/always-available admin access, the end result is uncontrollable privilege sprawl. A privileged account that has fallen in to the wrong hands, whether inside or outside the organization, with over privileged access can pose a significant risk to your organization.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: According to research from the IDSA, 79% of organizations have suffered an identity-related breach in the last 2 years and 29% reported that it was due to inadequately managed privileges. The Privilege Sprawl Index is an indicator of risk due to the proliferation and 24×7 availability of admin accounts that make it possible for attackers to first land on, and then move laterally to reach systems that host sensitive data. In this webinar, we will present security leaders with a method to model the Privilege Sprawl Index along with its impact on attack surface and lateral movement and strategies for reducing your Privileged Sprawl Index.
