CYBER SMART: How many organizations received a failing grade on the enforcement of proper privileged credential controls?

Written by Jordan True

July 8th, 2016

Answer: 52% of companies received a failing grade

We partnered with Cybersecurity Ventures on a report to find out how many organizations would fail on the proper enforcement of privileged credential controls. An alarming 52% of those companies received a failing grade on the enforcement of proper privileged credential controls. Part of the reason may be because only 10% of them have invested into a vendor solution to automate and get PAM right. Locking down privileged accounts should be on every CISO’s short list. If not, then they are inviting trouble. The path of least resistance for cyber evildoers is access to privileged account information. Want to download the full report?
