What: The “30-Day Cybersecurity Sprint: Tightening Privileged User Policies” webinar led by CyberArk’s Barak Feldman will examine the approach outlined by Scott and the White House, which stresses the importance of privileged account security, signaling a shift in security strategy for both public and private organizations – one that assumes attackers are already inside the enterprise.
