Anatomy of a Privileged Account Hack: How to Know the Risks and Keep them Contained

Register now!Thank You!!

Privileged accounts abound in every organization. Failure to manage them leads to significant risk, especially for organizations that use Active Directory and have grown to a level of 1,000 employees or more and service accounts can no longer be managed manually. Almost all large organizations suffer from extreme service account sprawl, perpetuating the unmanaged, uncontrolled expansion of their privileged account attack surface.

And yet a compromised privileged account can be the difference between a simple network breach and a cyber catastrophe. That’s because when privileged credentials get compromised, it allows the attacker to impersonate a trusted employee or system and carry out malicious activity without being detected as an intruder. Once attackers compromise a privileged account, they can typically roam at will through an IT environment to steal information and wreak havoc.
