Learn how passwords, privileges as well as vulnerabilities and attacks could be combined to create an attack vector to breach any business. Cyberattacks continue to grow in both sophistication and volume. It’s not a question of when, but if your business could be targeted. Cybercriminals attack the perimeter network however, in recent years they have focused in their focus on the route of the least resistance that is users and their rights.
In the ago, an entire company could be adequately managed with only a handful of credentials. The complexity of the environment today means that the need for privileged credentials to access various kinds of accounts (from domain admin and sysadmin , to workstations that have administrator rights) operating system (Windows, Unix, Linux and more. ) directories applications, databases cloud instances as well as networking hardware Internet of Things (IoT) as well as social media and many more. If not properly managed, these privileged credentials could pose a major security risk from hackers external to the network and insider threats. There isn’t one magic solution that can provide the security you require against all possible kinds of attack. While some innovative and novel solutions can to protect against or identify the first attack, they’re not guaranteed to block 100 percent of malicious actions. The number and frequency of attacks based on privileges continue to expand and test the boundaries of security measures and implementations of solutions.
Privileged Attack Vectors outlines the dangers associated with inadequate security management of privileges, tactics that hackers and insiders use as well as the steps that businesses must take to safeguard against a breach and protect themselves from the lateral movement of hackers, and increase the ability to identify insider threats or hacker activity in order to minimize the consequences.
