To Speed Up Your Organisation You Need to Slow Down Your Innovation And It's Ok

Today's environment has accelerated the pace of digital evolution. Companies are struggling with digital innovation (such as AI) as they adjust with the associated challenges.

Essentials of Securing Active Directory in a Hybrid Environment

For more than two decades, Microsoft Active Directory (AD) has been the de facto method organizations use to authenticate and authorize users so they can access computers, devices, and applications within a network. AD is celebrated for its extensive compatibility with various applications and Windows editions. But that compatibility comes with security downsides. Integrating business apps with AD, for example, centralizes access to a company's information stores, so once an attacker gains entry, the threat actor can wreak havoc.

And for those shifting to a hybrid environment, ensuring security can be even more complicated: Shifting from using only on-premises AD to extending to cloud authentication requires a different mindset and approach. 

In this web seminar, Semperis Chief Technologist Guido Grillenmeier will discuss AD access points used in recent cyberattacks, security risks to watch for in managing AD with Azure AD, how to look for warning signs that AD has been compromised, and steps to take in the event of an attack. You'll come away from this seminar with guidelines for securing AD from cyberattacks, including:

  • Common AD weak spots exploited in recent cyber-attacks
  • Top security risks to watch for in managing a hybrid identity environment
  •  Preparing for AD attack remediation 
  •  Understanding limitations of native AD rollback capabilities 
  •  Ensuring post-attack recovery doesn't re-introduce malware

Despite Regulations and Precautions - Data Breaches Are Lurking. Tips to be Ready

If data remains as a high valued commodity, ensuring data privacy and securing personal data will continue to be at the top of the list of an organisation's concerns. The increases in privacy legislation, such as GDPR and CCPA, and the understanding of the ramifications stemming from a breach have allowed these concerns to remain heavily in the spotlight. Web application flaws have been identified as the top cause of data breaches. As such, establishing and maintaining web application security has developed into a high priority for all organisations.

Going Mobile, Securely

The average employee uses at least 3 different mobile devices to access business data. This number has risen and so has the amount of company data that is being stored on each device. Each device represents another endpoint that needs to be secured. While mobile malware threats are low, it's expected that there will be a rise in data breaches directly related to mobile devices. Providing access to company data via a secure web application infrastructure with real-time vulnerability management is one way of reducing risk with mobile devices.

Takeaways;

  • -Mobile devices are generally considered safe means to access business data
  • -Employees use an average of three mobile devices, each is its own security challenge
  • -Data breaches through mobile devices are expected to increase

Larger corporations with enough capital to ensure long-term survival have taken this chance to instigate wholesale process and platform change during this period - but what does that mean for the customer experience?
