CIO Dive - Justine Brown – 8/30/16
[Ed. note: The following includes an interview with Colin Murphy, VP, PAM at CA Technologies]
"If you look at 2015 compared to 2014, there was about a 38% increase in the number of enterprise security incidents," said Colin Murphy, vice president and business unit executive for Privileged Access Management at CA Technologies.
Murphy also recommends companies use the "least privileged" approach to setting up privileged user access. In other words, only provide privileged user access to those that truly need it.
"The default should be to provide no privileged access, or very limited access. Then, based on an administrator's job or need to access certain systems, expand access to those systems as appropriate," he said.
