Guide to Privileged Access Management for Councils – Webinar and Demo

Friday 23 March 2018

According to a report by privacy group Big Brother Watch, 25% of UK councils have had their computer systems breached in the past five years. Based on Freedom of Information data , it is estimated that the number of cyber-attacks on local authorities was at 98 million between 2013 and 2017, amounting to 37 attacks every minute. BBC News writes that “the majority of successful cyber-attacks began with so-called phishing emails designed to trick staff into revealing passwords and other data.”

Join Tim Ager on our webinar at 10-11am on Wednesday 11th April in which he will introduce the core concepts of a successful Privileged Access Management implementation, and demonstrate how Privileged Access Management:


  • Reduces cybersecurity risk by separating privileged users from their admin passwords
  • Helps meet audit and compliance via Session Recording
  • Simplifies the admin experience with Single-Sign-On (SSO) to server infrastructure
  • Controls access from outsourced administrators and third parties
  • Increases efficiency via Task Management and Automation .


Tim will be joined by Terry Jenvey, Technical Consultant at Osirium, who will provide a practical demonstration of the core features of Osirium’s PxM Platform .


  • The administrator’s experience with simplified and secure SSO to servers
  • The use of tasks to control access and speed up administrative processes
  • The use of session recording to audit privileged sessions
