“PAM is all about securing the keys to your kingdom.”

“It is one of the most critical security controls to implement,” says Gartner Research Director Felix Gaehtgens.

Poorly managed privileged access can expose organizations to security breaches and regulatory rebukes, resulting in business losses and financial penalties. Identity and access management (IAM) leaders must effectively manage privileged access in a risk-aware fashion. The right combination of specialized privileged access management (PAM) tools and careful governance can help you improve security and compliance, as well as ensure auditability and accountability.

IAM Leaders’ Guide to Privileged Access Management

Privileged, administrative or excessively empowered accounts within an organization remain one of the primary targets of attackers and are often responsible for significant breaches. Security and risk management leaders should use PAM tools to appropriately manage and monitor privileged access.

The four pillars of privileged access management:

  1. Track and secure every privileged account
  2. Govern and control access
  3. Record and audit privileged activity
  4. Operationalize privileged activity

Multifactor authentication, IAM and cybersecurity are covered in depth at this year’s conference.
