Course Description

In a typical organization, several employees — usually in senior positions — have privileged access to data and systems. While this access is necessary for them to do their jobs, the elevated access they have can also lead to harmful changes to devices, applications or infrastructure.

GLS’s Respecting Privileged Access training course explains what privileged access is, the risks associated with it, what can be done to mitigate the risks, and the best practices employees with privileged access should follow. It also includes timely knowledge check questions to test the user’s understanding of the content.

Privileged access training minimizes risks

Did you know that 74% of data breaches begin with privileged access abuse?

The main goal of any cyber attack is to gain access to sensitive data. Who has the most convenient access to sensitive data? Employees with privileged access. Since privileged access accounts provide the most direct route to this sensitive data, cybercriminals blatantly target these accounts — and their users.
