The need to secure your Microsoft Active Directory Services and relevant privileged credentials is a top business priority, given the degree of credential hijacking currently taking place. In 2015, over 75 percent of all compromised records from data breaches was traced directly to the loss or theft of a privileged credential.
And too often, attackers use these stolen credentials to access your network for weeks without detection, causing lost revenues, diminished reputation and operational havoc. But prescriptive guidance and effective tools are available to protect your organization and mitigate the impact of credential theft. This session, hosted by Skyport Systems, will walk you through these best practices and introduce its SkySecure Platform, designed specifically to protect your Microsoft Identity infrastructure.
Credential appropriation and theft plagues many large enterprises, particularly those that use Microsoft Active Directory. Microsoft recently released a comprehensive set of cybersecurity guidelines for Credential Theft Mitigation, but the complexity and cost involved in implementing these advanced recommendations has been a barrier in deploying them.
In this lively session, Doug Gourlay, Executive Vice President at Skyport Systems, will discuss:
The threats and past cyberattacks that underscore the critical need of protecting your Microsoft Identity infrastructure;
A prescriptive roadmap based on Microsoft's Best Practices Guidance that most organizations can easily implement;
The ways in which Skyport's SkySecure Platform can protect your privileged credentials from theft.
