Attackers are targeting Active Directory in nearly every type of attack, especially ransomware attacks. Unfortunately, organizations struggle with where to begin to secure AD, as well as what should be emphasized. The end result is a weak AD security posture that is easily attacked and exploited by attackers.

There is a solution to securing AD to disrupt attackers. By prioritizing the most exploited settings, the attack surface of AD can be dramatically reduced. This approach of securing AD gives every organization a clear starting and ending point to get through a first wave of securing their AD environment. In this session, a panel of security experts will offer guidance on which settings need immediate attention, as well as how these security settings can be maintained over time to ensure the attack surface of AD remains small.

Talking Points:

  • What attackers leverage to exploit AD and escalate privileges
  • What settings need immediate attention to reduce the AD attack surface
  • How AD security can be maintained to ensure constant disruption of attacks
