Active Directory: Elevate your Domain Security - Part 2

Presented at SAINTCON 2019, Oct. 23, 2019, 1 p.m. (240 minutes)

**Training is limited to 40 people. Training is first come first serve!!!** Training Part 2: Students will participate in a dedicated Active Directory network that has undergone a recent penetration assessment. Based on the results of the assessment, students will implement improvements to the Active Directory domain and test if their actions improve their domain security. Most improvements will be deployed using Group Policy. Some additional tools for assessing/improving security of the domain will include PingCastle and Sysmon. Part of the training will include organizing a separation of privileged accounts and enforcing those accounts as well as setting up a Windows Event Forwarding server and creating alerts for domain events to review. Students will use the Windows 10 VM from part 1 of the training to test our remediation actions. For additional students not attending part 1, most information covered can be easily observed. **Training is limited to 40 people. Training is first come first serve!!!**
