Best practices for securing Active Directory and Azure AD

Webinar Registration

Hybrid Identity involving both on-premises Active Directory and Azure AD is one of the most common configurations used by organizations today. Because cybercriminals know this, modern attacks have demonstrated the breadth and depth of understanding threat actors have about Microsoft’s directory services – including the vulnerabilities and insecurities that exist therein – that enable successful attacks on AD.

With data breaches and ransomware attacks both leveraging the same need for accessing AD and Azure AD to empower lateral movement both on-prem and in the cloud, it is imperative that both AD and Azure AD are as secure as humanly possible.

So, what aspects of AD and Azure AD provide the greatest risk and the largest threat surface – therefore, requiring your immediate attention?

In this real-training-for-free session, Microsoft MVP and cybersecurity expert Nick Cavalancia takes my seat, and will first discuss:

  • The prevalence of modern attacks on AD and Azure AD
  • Where in an attack kill chain do AD and Azure AD actually help threat actors

Nick will be joined by cybersecurity expert and fellow Microsoft MVP, Sander Berkouwer, a Dutch IT Professional who works as CTO at SCCT in the Netherlands, and author of the much-appraised Active Directory Cookbook. Sander will take a deep dive into ten specific and practical best practices you can implement relatively easily to secure AD and Azure AD involving:

  • Protocols in use
  • Methods of authentication
  • Use of privileged accounts
  • Ongoing account hygiene
  • Health and Change Monitoring

Also joining us will be David Metzgar, Solutions Engineer from Netwrix, who will be showing how Netwrix Auditor can assist in ensuring Active Directory and Azure AD remain in a secure state.

This real training for free event will be jam packed with technical detail and real-world application. Register today!
