Privileged access is a prime target for cybercriminals due to the valuable and confidential information it grants access to, including customer identities, financial data, and personally identifiable information. Once breached, cybercriminals can exploit privileged accounts to navigate laterally or create sub-administrative accounts, extracting critical data.
Common challenges in access and identity management include inadequate processes for removing employee accounts upon exit, granting administrative access to third-party vendors for convenience, limited granularity in privileged access control, and the rise of shadow IT as employees use personal devices outside corporate security policies.
At Ensign, we provide top-notch Identity Management services to secure your digital identity.
To protect critical data, organisations need to tackle common access and identity management challenges head-on through the adoption of robust Identity Management services. This entails establishing well-defined offboarding procedures, enforcing stringent controls for third-party vendor access, deploying role-based access control with data classification, and ensuring comprehensive IT security policies that encompass personal devices used for work. By fortifying Identity Management practices, organisations can safeguard the integrity of their data and mitigate the risks associated with unauthorised access or data breaches.
With privileged access being a prime target for cybercriminals seeking valuable and confidential information, organisations must prioritise robust controls. At Ensign, we provide Privileged Access Management services which put a focus on data and identity protection, preventing unauthorised access and data exfiltration. By implementing proper controls and restricting privileged data access, we fortify your organisation's defence against internal and external threats in your IT environment.
