Welcome to the latest of my Security Bytes posts, where I dig into areas of interest in Infosec/CyberSec, and offer my opinion. In my last post, I talked at a high level about the history of computers and privileged access. In this post, I want to get into a term you may hear a lot of if you work in Information Security, CyberSecurity or any Technology Risk role - Least Privilege.
This post is the first in a series of posts on the challenges of balancing privileged access with a robust security posture and a challenging delivery pipeline. It is also the first of my Security Bytes posts, where I dig into areas of interest in Information Security/Cyber Security, and offer my opinion. If you’ve known me for a while you’ll know I’ve only worked in an InfoSec/CyberSec role for just over two years.
