Privileged accounts, and the access they provide, represent the largest security vulnerabilities an organization faces today. And it’s obvious enough why: privileged credentials give the “keys to the kingdom” that grant unrestricted access to the sensitive data and critical infrastructure that attackers are targeting.
But knowing this fact doesn’t really help you defend against the compromise of privileged account credentials. You need to understand how attackers compromise these accounts, in order to know how best to defend your organization. To foil attackers, you need to be able to think like them. If, like us, you spend a lot of time helping organizations prevent and respond to attacks and breaches, you get to know a lot about how attackers think.
So, in this guide, we’re using what we’ve learned to help you protect your organization against the most common attack paths attempting to compromise your most critical assets.
