Stolen credentials are used in more than 60% of successful attacks against corporate networks. Lateral movement across networks using compromised credentials often goes unnoticed, but using behavioral analysis, Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) can identify when credentials are being used for malicious purposes.

In this webinar, Russell Smith introduces the concept of user behavior profiling, and specifically Microsoft's Advanced Threat Analytics solution, how it works in practice, and why least privilege security is essential for protecting credentials.

By the end of the session, attendees will understand:

  • Different ways credentials can be stolen and used for malicious purposes.
  • What Advanced Threat Analytics and user behavior profiling is.
  • The architecture of Microsoft ATA.
  • How Least Privilege Security prevents credential theft.

This will be a session you won’t want to miss!
