Organisations sloppy about securing privileged accounts

How to build a privileged account management strategy

Shaw says a privileged account management strategy should take an integrated approach to addressing the challenges around privileged accounts, including the following best practices:

  • Take an inventory of your organization's privileged accounts, including users, and the systems that use them.
  • Ensure that privileged passwords are stored securely, and enforce strict requirements for access request and change management processes for privileged passwords.
  • Whenever possible, ensure individual accountability and least-privileged access.
  • Log and/or monitor all privileged access.
  • Audit use of privileged access on a regular basis.
