Manage Access Rights and IT Assets with NIST Standards-Based Solutions

Financial institutions face a challenging environment in which cyber threats are growing in severity and sophistication. Splunk and other partners have been working with NIST’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) to address two key challenges in the financial sector. These efforts have resulted in the publication of two NIST 1800 series publications which are available for download.

First, some financial institutions have identity and access systems that are fragmented and incompatible, making their operation complex and prone to errors that can be exploited by outside attackers or malicious insiders. NCCoE developed an example solution for access rights management that can help financial institutions to more effectively issue, validate, modify, and revoke access rights across their entire enterprise.

Second, financial institutions deploy a wide array of information technology devices, systems, and applications across a wide geographic area, and ineffective tracking and configuration of those IT assets can leave an organization vulnerable to security threats. NCCoE developed an example solution for IT asset management that can enhance the visibility of IT assets and enable faster response to security alerts.

In this webinar, you will learn about the following from NCCoE and Splunk experts:

• The architecture of the example solutions, and how they can be implemented at your organization to improve your cybersecurity posture.
• How a robust data analytics platform plays a key role in the example solutions.
