Hope you’re all well. Last year I had said that it was time for us to provide Thought Leadership to the Cyber Security space.
Since then, I’ve penned over 50 blog posts, on numerous important topics,
and helped 1000s of organizations worldwide better understand –
There’s so much more to share, and I will continue to do so.
A Paramount Global Cyber Security Need
Today, I wanted to take a moment to touch upon one (not so) little aspect of cyber security that today profoundly impacts the foundational security of 85% of all business and government organizations worldwide, including most cyber security companies.
Folks, I am talking about empowering organizations worldwide identify exactly who holds the proverbial “Keys to the Kingdom” i.e. helping them accurately identify exactly who actually possesses what privileged access in Active Directory deployments.
The reason this is so important is because 100% of all major recent cyber security breaches (e.g. Snowden, Target, JP Morgan, Sony, Anthem, OPM) involved the compromise and misuse of guess what – just ONE Active Directory Privileged User Account.
Since we‘ve been silently working on this 2006, we’ve a head start of about a decade. Over the last few months, we’ve seen several prominent vendors finally realize the importance of doing so, and we’ve seen them share guidance to this subject.
Unfortunately, just about every piece of advice out there, whether it be from prominent cyber security experts or billion dollar cyber security companies, on how to actually correctly audit privileged access in Active Directory, is dangerously inaccurate.
So, in days to come, right here on this blog, I’m going to (hopefully for one last time), share exactly how organizations worldwide can today accurately and efficiently identify privileged access in their foundational Active Directory deployments worldwide.
In doing so, we will yet again demonstrate Thought Leadership in the Cyber Security space. By the way, this is neither about us, nor about pride. I’ve already said I’m just a nobody (, whose work possibly impacts everybody.) This is about a desire to help.
So, that post should be out right here on this blog next week, possibly as early as Monday morning.
