How to leverage Intelligent Access to de-risk the breach

What's this blog post about?

Companies are shifting their focus from solely preventing breaches to preparing for inevitable attacks by de-risking breaches through intelligent access principles. This involves enforcing least privilege, monitoring real-time access changes, and performing forensics beyond basic log analysis. Security professionals emphasize that it's not a question of "if," but "when" breaches will occur, so organizations must adapt their security posture to quickly shut down security incidents. Achieving and maintaining Least Privilege is crucial in reducing the risk and potential impact of data breaches. Regularly reviewing and adjusting access privileges, implementing real-time monitoring of access changes, and not relying solely on logging are key strategies for minimizing the effects of a breach.
