The modern IT landscape is filled with secrets: certificates, cryptocurrency wallets, SQL connection strings, storage account keys, passwords, and encryption keys. No matter what your role, managing these secrets can be a high-stakes headache. Getting a handle on secrets management is a top challenge. Too often, enterprises don’t even know when secrets are compromised. In fact, 80% of data breaches are caused by silly mistakes by those responsible for managing secrets.
Knowing where secrets are kept in the company is critical – and sometimes easier said than done. Companies typically manage secrets by storing them as plain text within the source code or separately in configuration files. There is also the fragmentation issue. For example, do employees have private keys and connection managers? Are secrets being passed through emails or dumped on a server? Or maybe everything is encrypted, but scattered. This webinar will explore ways for organizations to better store, manage, and protect their secrets and ultimately, their data.
