Episode 172 - Privileged Access Management (PAM) with BeyondTrust CISO & CTO, Morey Haber

September 09, 2019

Interview with Mr. Morey Haber, Chief Technology Officer & Chief Information Security Officer, BeyondTrust, USA and co-author with Brad Hibbert of Privileged Attack Vectors: Building Effective Cyber-Defense Strategies to Protect Organizations, published by Apress.

Recorded as part of the 'Privileged Access Forum: Defending Against Targeted Attacks', held in Singapore and Melbourne in August 2019. Morey Haber presented on 'Building Effective Cyber-Defense Strategies to Protect Organisations' and 'Just-in-Time (JIT) Privileged Access – Why It Is The Next Big Step In Risk Reduction & How To Implement It'.

According to recent reports, 81 per cent of hacking-related breaches leverage stolen or weak passwords. This is consistent with other breaches that have hit the Asia Pacific region in recent years. Singapore Health, Cathay Pacific and the Australian Parliament are just recent examples of how unprotected privilege credentials can be exploited to gain access to sensitive data.

Privileged accounts and credentials are the most commonly targeted point of entry for cybercriminals, and the risk surface is growing significantly. With the development of hybrid infrastructures, virtualisation, and cloud, there are more privileged accounts than ever for attackers to target. Asia Pacific is a significant target for cyber threats due to its geographical region and hub for global commerce.

Recorded 22 August, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt, Melbourne. Interview by Chris Cubbage, Executive Editor, MySecurity Media as Exclusive Media Partners to the BeyondTrust 'Privileged Access Forum: Defending Against Targeted Attacks', Singapore and Melbourne.
