Privileged access management and security in the enterprise

Last updated:January 2017

Editor's note

All companies of varying sizes have privileged users with accounts that give them the ability to critically affect how the company's entire system is running. Privileged access management should be an important ongoing process in every enterprise, as it can prevent user accumulation of privileges, promote the security principle of least privilege and impede the abuse of user credentials. Learn from Michael Cobb, founder of Cobweb Applications, how to keep user roles and privileges aligned and what checks and balances prevent privilege abuse and data breaches.

Watch the video, listen to the podcast, read the tech tip then take the quiz to see how much you have learned about privileged access management. Passing the quiz earns you one CPE credit from (ISC)2.
