Privileged Access Management - Getting started using open source and community edition software
Companies of all sizes have high risk, privileged accounts that need to be managed and monitored -- and starting a Privileged Access Management program is a necessary part of developing a well-thought out security strategy. Even if you have no budget and limited resources, there are mature open source tools available to help you reduce your risks and improve your security posture. This talk will explore some of the benefits and challenges around implementing open source tools and then go on to review a couple of mature open source tools that could be used by your organization to mitigate risks. Implementing open source tools can be a challenge, but if you have a hands-on technical team, then you may be interested in giving some of them a try. Let’s explore some of the tools available and how they can be used to get your PAM program started.
