The Shortfall in Privileged Account Security – and what organizations can do about it

According to the 2016 Verizon Data Breach Report, 63% of confirmed data breaches involved leveraging weak, default or stolen passwords.

Thycotic a provider of PAM solutions for 7,500+ organizations worldwide, in conjunction with Cybersecurity Ventures, a research, and market intelligence firm, launched a ground-breaking online Privileged Password Vulnerability (PPV) Benchmark survey taken by 600+ organization from around the globe to learn why 63% of the data breaches involved privileged accounts.

We found that 52% of the companies who participated in the benchmark survey received a failing grade on the enforcement of confidential/classified credential controls.

Join Thycotic in a 45-minute educational training session that reveals the specific shortcomings in the current state of account security and provides recommendations for how to address the most common failures.

During the training session, you will learn session:

  • Why privileged accounts are an attractive target for attackers
  • Overview of the PPV Benchmark
  • See the overall grades of 600+ organizations who took the PPV Benchmark
  • Review the specific gaps in privileged account security practices
  • Provide best practice recommendations to reduce the risk
  • Provide access to several free tools that you can leverage to get immediate improvements

As a bonus, we will provide access to the PPV Benchmark so your members get immediate feedback on two dimensions:

  • Organizations will get a grade based on their benchmark answers (A-F)
  • Organizations will also get a report to see how their answers to each benchmark question, compares to others in their peer group
