Changes in the IT and threat landscape are forcing a sea-change in security. Gartner’s new security framework CARTA (Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust Assessment) is pushing organizations away from simple black-and-white views of security toward a model that accounts for a broad spectrum of risk and continuously adapts to change in real time. This goal makes obvious sense, but it can be easier said than done in the real world. In this session we will address some of the pitfalls and best practices for bringing a CARTA-style approach to your everyday security practice, including:
How to quantify risk and prevent exploitation of compromised credentials
Accounting for privileged users and service accounts
Bringing users into the loop to deliver self-serve security
Finally, a policy framework for defining policies that combine identity, risk and behavior to continously preempt threats without impacting your business
