About the CyberWhite Inaugural Security Forum
The Inaugural Security Forum is a private event hosted by digital security consultants CyberWhite. The event is spread across two days, with a public sector focus on Wednesday 26th September and a private sector focus on Thursday 27th September.
Expert speakers are invited to share interesting insights into the latest and emerging cyber threats, whilst providing helpful advice and cutting-edge risk mitigation strategies.
Osirium have been invited to speak to the Public Sector on Wednesday 26th September about our unique and innovative Privileged Access Management solution.
The Journey to Privileged Access Management (PAM) for the Public Sector
Uncontrolled privileged access from insiders or third parties leaves organisations vulnerable to attack. According to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, stolen credentials were the number one cause of the half a million cyber security incidents that took place during 2017, with privilege account abuse not far behind. Privileged Accounts are not only the target, but the tactic too: 25% of these attacks were executed by trusted insiders, the majority of which were SysAdmins. And it’s not just private companies suffering. Healthcare was identified as the #1 industry suffering cybersecurity breaches last year, with the Public sector coming in at #3.
With ever more stringent compliance requirements, the Public Sector must find a way to protect their most valuable assets – their Privileged Accounts. In this talk, we’ll not only explain how PAM protects against the insider threat and prevents malware and other attacks from identifying Privileged Accounts, but how straightforward implementation can be.
We’ll take delegates on a journey from insecure password management processes through Osirium’s gearing system: a staged and painless approach to PAM implementation.
