Active Directory Security Wake-Up Call! 

Fellow security practitioner, we’ve got bad news.  The Battle for Primo-infection is over, and we’ve lost.

After three decades and billions in investments preventing attackers from gaining a foothold in our organizations’ IT systems, it’s clear this is not a battle worth fighting anymore. Our attack surfaces have increased a hundred-fold over the last 10 years, rendering our hardening and detection efforts useless against an opponent who just needs to succeed one time, somewhere.

But how haven’t we seen this coming? How is it possible that all our industry, from vendors to users, got so obsessed with primo-infection and paid so little attention to our most vital IT asset, the one that governs it all?
Unfortunately, our opponents didn’t make the same mistake. Hacking through Active Directory to get domain dominance is a robust practice that rarely requires advanced craftsmanship.

Why don’t we seriously secure Active Directory? 

Please join our roundtable discussion to share with us your analysis, hear ours, and to find ways to move forward.
