NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Paramount Defenses, one of the world’s top cyber security companies, led by former Microsoft Program Manager for Active Directory Security, will skip the cyber security RSA Conference 2016 to declassify the world’s top cyber security risk.
Microsoft Active Directory is the very foundation of cyber security at 85% of all organizations worldwide, as well as the core of privileged access and power worldwide.
Active Directory privileged users hold the proverbial “Keys to the Kingdom,” and historically, 100% of all major recent cyber security breaches, including Snowden, Target, JP Morgan, Sony, Anthem and most recently the OPM Data Breach, involved the compromise and misuse of a single Active Directory privileged user account.
The Paramount Brief documents the world’s top cyber security risk, concerning the alarming presence of an excessively large and unknown number of users that possess both unrestricted as well as delegated privileged access within the foundational Active Directory deployments of most organizations worldwide.
During the past few weeks, the company has shared an advance copy of the Paramount Brief with the leadership of the world’s top organizations, both in the private sector as well as in government.
Earlier this week, the company also shared an advanced copy of the Paramount Brief with the leadership of the world’s top cyber security companies as they too may be vulnerable to the cyber security risk documented in the Paramount Brief. Many of these cyber security companies are Diamond, Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsors of the RSA Conference 2016.
In order to proceed with the scheduled declassification of the Paramount Brief on February 29, 2016, the company will skip attending the RSA Conference this year.
“As a Top-10 Innovator at the RSA Conference 2007 almost a decade ago, we have great respect for the RSA Conference. We will unfortunately have to skip the RSA Conference this year to help organizations worldwide, including the world’s top cyber security companies, understand and mitigate a critical esoteric cyber security risk in a timely manner. We look forward to being at the RSA Conference next year,” said Sanjay Tandon, Chief Executive Officer of Paramount Defenses.
The Paramount Brief will be declassified on February 29, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time at –
