Controlling Privileged Access and Mitigating Insider Threats in Government Agencies
With cyber-crimes looming large, effectively securing sensitive data has emerged a big challenge for government agencies and military establishments. As they embrace new technologies, newer threats keep pace. Though the IT infrastructure of government agencies face both external and internal security threats, of late, internal threats seem to be far more alarming as many of the reported security incidents have been caused by malicious insiders having authorized or unauthorized privileged access to the government IT resources. Analysis by IT experts has revealed that insider threat is growing at unprecedented rates. This paper analyzes how insider threats stem in government agencies, the ways to tackle the challenge and also brings out the importance of controlling access to Privileged Passwords.
Combating Cyber Security Threats
Of late, cyber-criminal activities across the globe have assumed such grave proportions that all enterprises - big and small, are exposed to security breaches and identity thefts of various kinds. Many sabotage were found to have been caused by the insiders of the enterprises - either disgruntled staff or greedy techies or sacked employees. As stolen identities seem to have served as the ‘hacking channel’ for many cyber-crimes, improper management of the administrative passwords is believed to be at the root of a good number of security threats. This paper discusses the causes of security incidents in detail and suggests ways to effectively tackle the challenge.
