Lieberman Software Presents “Common Credentials Dilemma” at InfoSec World
Without Privileged Identity Management, Organizations Increase Exposure to Data Breaches, Regulatory Compliance Violations and Damaged Reputations
(Los Angeles, CA – April 9, 2013) – Lieberman Software Corporation will showcase its industry-leading privileged identity management technology as a Platinum Sponsor of the InfoSec World Conference and Expo in Orlando, April 15-17. The company will exhibit in booth #201, and President and CEO Philip Lieberman will present "The Common Credentials Dilemma" at 8:30am ET on April 16.
The presentation will explain how enterprises typically have thousands of privileged accounts - such as administrator, root and SA accounts. For convenience, IT groups often deploy systems with identical privileged account passwords and then leave them unchanged.
The fundamental flaws with this practice are the serious data breaches and regulatory compliance violations that can occur if even one privileged password is compromised. If each privileged account is not automatically updated with unique passwords, a single decrypted password can lead to unrestricted access everywhere on the network that uses the same credentials.
"If an organization regularly changes its privileged passwords, maintains unique credentials on each system, and automates the management of privileged credentials so that they are only disclosed to audited users for a limited time, then this threat is significantly minimized," Lieberman explained.
In the session, Lieberman will cover:
- How to remediate the common credentials problem,
- Best practices for finding, tracking and continuously securing privileged accounts, and
- Success factors for automating error-prone manual tasks for managing privileged identities.
