    Session Leaders:

    Brian Chappell, Chief Security Strategist – BeyondTrust

    Oscar Stark, CISO Alliances Community Member

    Session Synopsis:

    For those who attended our first session on The Seven Perils of Privilege in 2021, you should remember that it was so vocal and interactive that we didn’t actually have the chance to reach our Peril #2… and that is a good problem to have. It means that the topic is of interest and that privilege management is more than ever a sensitive and yet critical challenge to tackle.

    And so we’re back with our Seven Perils of Privilege. For this Volume 2, we will address what these perils are, their causes, the effects of leaving them unaddressed, and (most importantly) solutions. But we will have a particular focus on how the Zero Trust approach and the proliferation of ransomware may have impacted your overall cybersecurity strategy.

    So join us to learn and brainstorm:

    • What the seven perils of privilege are and which ones represent the highest risks for your peers
    • Why poor password practices, lax cloud security (and much more) create risk
    • How can organizations reduce some of these risks

    Ready to take control of privileges? Join us to learn more and leave with key practical takeaways.
