Since it was introduced twenty years ago, Active Directory has become a major security concern for the majority of enterprises. In spite of the enormous amounts of money spent on defense security products, it is very hard to efficiently protect large domain environments that span across multiple domains and forests. In this presentation we will offer an alternative view on Active Directory security with a strong focus on actionable steps security teams can take to improve their domain security. After a short overview of the current attack trends, we will explore why most defensive products deployed today are not enough to secure complex multi-domain environments and what additional measures security teams should take to better protect their infrastructure.
