Philip Lieberman of Lieberman Software to Share Insight on "Disarming the Insider Threat" at San Francisco Computer Forensics Show
(LOS ANGELES, CA – October 25, 2010) Lieberman Software Corporation, the Pioneers of Privileged Identity ManagementSM, today announced that President and CEO Philip Lieberman will speak at the San Francisco Computer Forensics Show at 3:45 p.m. PT on Monday, November 1. Mr. Lieberman will present "Disarming the Insider Threat" to conference attendees including legal, accounting, IT security, risk management and law enforcement professionals.
The Computer Forensics Show organizers note that by most estimates 90 percent of legal evidence resides in computer systems, rather than on paper. Absent the right controls to restrict and monitor IT staff access to sensitive data, organizations can suffer data breaches and costly regulatory compliance failures.
"Organizations today face a significant challenge in mitigating threats from insiders with privileged access. While traditional identity access management and role-based access solutions provide controls for conventional users, they offer limited protection against misuse by those with credentials that allow elevated access," said Lieberman.
In the session, Lieberman will outline methods of:
- Discovering unsecured privileged accounts in all major operating systems, network appliances, databases, Web services, line-of-business applications, and more.
- Continuously compartmentalizing and securing privileged credentials, allowing audited access only by authorized personnel.
- Monitoring the endpoint activity of administrative users as they access sensitive data, alerting the appropriate staff whenever policy violations occur.
- Deploying DVR-like replay of captured user activities, fingerprinting critical intellectual property and instantly enforcing policies to mitigate intentional and unintentional insider threats.
An outspoken and highly regarded industry influencer, Lieberman is quoted by national, business and trade press on security technology issues including insider threats, cybersecurity and security in the cloud. As president and founder of Lieberman Software, he developed the first products for the privileged password management and shared account password management space, and continues to introduce new solutions to resolve the security threat of common privileged account credentials. Lieberman blogs on a wide range of security topics including current events, compliance, legislation and the business and technology of privileged identity management at the Identity Week blog.
