Detect and alert for escalations of account privileges, and monitor for user accounts that have been exposed in breaches.
Performing periodic audits on user accounts is critical in preventing major incidents. Threat actors can dwell in an environment and slowly escalate privileges over time. Insider threats, negligence, and over-provisioned third-party accounts – identify them before they lead to issues.
According to the Ponemon Institute, containment of insider threats typically takes up to 90 days, costing organizations an average of $17.19 million dollars annually. What’s more, in 2022 the Institute reported that of organizations that were breached, 70% of them were due to granting too much privileged access to third parties. The importance of accurate user access reviews and continuous monitoring for escalation of privileges can’t be overstated in reducing cybersecurity risks.
