Top 5 privileged account security reports CISOs must have: What Privileged Account passwords are expiring this week?

By JordanTrue

How do you know when a password is about to be changed according to an assigned password rotation interval? Or when a privileged account or any other item stored within your privileged account management tool is reaching the end of its validation period and needs to be renewed?

In this exclusive 5-part Thycotic educational series we outline the privileged account security reports CISOs must have to effectively protect their organization from cyber attacks and insider threats:

Report 1 – What computers in Active Directory no longer exist?
Report 2 – Which privileged accounts are no longer valid?
Report 3 – Who hasn’t logged in within the last 90 days?
Report 4 – What is the status of your privileged account password policy compliance?
You’re reading: Report 5 – What privileged account passwords are expiring this week?

CISO Report 5: What privileged account passwords are expiring this week?

The “What privileged account passwords are expiring this week?” report shows you which privileged accounts are due to expire in the coming week. Expiry, in this context, can mean either that the password associated with a credential stored within your privileged account management solution is about to be changed according to an assigned password rotation interval (i.e. once every 30 days). Or, it can mean that any other item stored within your privileged account management tool, such as a web certificate, is reaching the end of its validation period and needs to be renewed.

This is an invaluable report to identify which items may need attention or monitoring during their rotation period to ensure related items continue to function normally. Your report can be easily modified to show which passwords are expiring in the next month, 90 days, or any other period of time.

Additionally, it can be automated to send notifications to you or other appropriate team members to alert them to upcoming expirations of credentials, certificates or any other stored item within Secret Sever.
