Session Abstract: Companies of all sizes have privileged accounts that need to be managed and monitored. Starting a privileged account management (PAM) program is a necessary part of developing a well-conceived security strategy. Developing a PAM program is often a complex, multi-year journey. Journeys of this kind can experience challenges -- detours or getting "stuck in the mud" -- and may need some help getting back on track. As someone who has been down this path multiple times, the presenter will offer tips on how to deploy a PAM program to provide immediate benefits to your organization, and how to develop a framework for sound program maturity over time. We'll discuss issues like account discovery and process automation to start a program on a solid foundation. We will also discuss how to overcome obstacles such as pushback while expanding a PAM program.
