Imagine burglars have stolen the keys to your home, which they then use to get inside and take whatever they want without being detected. A privileged account access breach is a bit like this. Cybercriminals can gain access to a privileged account from which they can steal confidential information and disrupt the normal operations of your business.
The only way to protect against this type of attack is to ensure that only authorized users gain access to privileged accounts. And while Privileged Access Management (PAM) can help reduce risks, it also provides security teams with a false sense of security.
