"Infosec pros have really adopted the attitude and assume that threat actors are already in ... and they are taking steps on how they can solve for that," Elliott says.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent New York Fraud and Breach Summit, Elliott, who was a featured speaker, also discusses:

  • The common access-related vulnerabilities;
  • Steps to gain control over privileged access;
  • Why managing vendor access should be your first step.

Elliott is director of security product management with Bomgar. Previously, he held positions at BMC Software and Numara Software.
