Building a practice around Active Directory

Attack Surface Reduction


"Microsoft's VP of Identity Security, Alex Weinert, said at The Experts Conference 2022: ""On-premises is where we’re being attacked."" Enterprise AD environments are prone to drift and misconfigurations, opening them up to opportunistic attackers. Many organizations have not consolidated their AD environment after an M&A. The result is a security gap that could leave enterprises at risk. This session will focus on the conversation you should have with these organizations (and it's not a migration conversation):

  1. Simple questions to ask to uncover the exposure
  2. Perspective from extensive experience in this area
  3. Quest solutions that identify and address the gap


Partner Recognition and Closing Executive Keynote
