IAM for the Modern Enterprise: Managing High Risk Users and Insider Breaches

Managing insider threats begins with identifying which users present the biggest risk when it comes to a potential incident or breach. Knowing who has access to what is key to managing malicious and unintentional user negligence and compromise which result in insider breaches.
