In this Identiverse 2021 session, Guidehouse Cybersecurity Director Christine Owendiscusses Implementing Privileged Access Management Solutions in a Zero Trust Environment.
As the amount of access to a network expands, so does the attack surface and vectors for potential compromise.

Privileged Access Management solutions need to be incorporated into an organization’s system with Zero Trust architecture in mind. Zero Trust introduces a “never trust, always verify” mentality, which centers around enforcing a “least privilege” approach to users and devices inside or outside the network through dynamic policies based on a clear insight into the identity of the user or device.
