This Month's Topic:  
Top Active Directory Attacks and How to Prevent Them

As the most broadly deployed identity service in the world, Active Directory is a lucrative target for cyberattackers. Ransomware-as-a-service groups including Conti and LockBit 2.0 have become increasingly adept at finding and exploiting security gaps in Active Directory. In this session, Alexandra Weaver, Semperis Solutions Architect, discusses the most common AD security vulnerabilities she encounters in her work with customers, how attackers take advantage of those gaps with examples from recent attacks, and how you can harden your AD security posture to prevent attacks.

Speaker Bio:
Alexandra Weaver has twenty years' experience supporting Active Directory in a wide variety of organizations, from government to some of the world's best-known companies. After 8 years supporting the Bureau of Land Management's Active Directory, she moved to Intel to support their worldwide corporate and manufacturing forests. After some time in financial services IT, she moved to Nike where she also supported their worldwide production forest. Her experience has included merger & acquisition projects where she migrated newly acquired companies into an existing Active Directory infrastructure, an Identity and Access Management implementation & migration project, upgrading domain controllers and associated downstream dependent applications and providing Active Directory support. Active Directory is Alexandra's first tech passion, and she enjoys deep diving into it as associated technologies continue to evolve.
