Check Your Privileged Users

Anne Bisagno


One of the biggest security risks companies run is giving users access to more applications and data than they need to do their jobs. Fortunately, it's not hard to mitigate that risk. Privilege management software vendor BeyondTrust offers these suggestions:


1.  Implement least privilege policies 



Use vulnerability assessment to manage risk and gain visibility into your organization's privileged accounts (i.e. those that need the most access) 
3. Develop a centralized password management policy 
4. Bolster monitoring of privileged access 
5. Conduct thorough background checks on those who receive privileged access accounts 
6. Modernize your organization's privileged user training programs 
7. Assign the responsibility for privileged user certification to business units
