Webcast: Privileged Account Governance: How to Satisfy Auditors Worried about Admin Accounts 

Presented by Randy Franklin Smith and Jonathan Sander 

During IT audits, whenever admin authority was discussed, it was not uncommon to hear the CIO say, “You have to trust someone; someone has to hold the keys.” Today, this mindset is unacceptable to auditors and regulators.

Many organizations have made a lot of progress on managing end-user access – or at least understanding what needs to be done. But still tend to be immature in the area of privileged account management and governance.

In this on-demand webcast, we’ll look at how to implement governance and control over privileged accounts, applying the same principles used for governing end-user identities and access.

But implementing controls like this on privileged authority is more difficult than with end-user authority for many reasons including:

  1. Many systems have a monolithic admin authority model
  2. While logged on with admin authority you can create back doors to use after it’s revoked
  3. Native audit logs tend to have significant holes when tracking admin operations
  4. Privileged authority should not be granted on permanent basis

Watch this on-demand webcast and learn how to climb the maturity model of privileged account governance. We’ll discuss procedures and conventions you can follow manually to improve privileged account management, as well as technologies from One Identity that really boost your ability to deal with privileged user risks and achieve mature governance.
