Most cyber-attacks today involve using compromised credentials. Since domain controllers provide the security for all domain-joined systems, Active Directory privileged accounts are particularly vulnerable targets.

In this webinar, Russell Smith will show you how to plan your Active Directory and manage access to domain controllers to minimize the risk of exposing privileged credentials. Tune into this webinar and learn how to:

  • Separate servers and administrator accounts into Microsoft’s three tiers
  • Automate the creation of Microsoft’s recommended OU structure and groups
  • Populate privileged AD groups using AD DS management accounts
  • Use Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) to manage domain controllers
