ISSA Colorado Springs May 2020 Meeting
Webinar | ISSA Colorado Springs May 2020 Virtual Meeting

Speakers: Sean Deuby, Director of Services, Semperis and Clark Brown, Partner and Practice Leader, Alescent Topic: Ransomware vs. Active Directory Backups: What Can Throw a Wrench into Your Disaster Recovery Process? Synopsis: In a cyber disaster, you must recover Active Directory before you can recover your business. But only one in five organizations have a tested plan in place for recovering AD after a cyberattack. This is alarming given the spike of ransomware attacks and the widespread impact of an AD outage. Organizations must now be able to quickly recover their AD domain controllers and protect against rogue scripts. However, traditional backup methods don’t always address ransomware scenarios. Considering that cyber disasters now strike more frequently and inflict more business damage than natural disasters, it’s time to think “cyber-first”. Cyber-first requirements for AD recovery: Fully automate AD forest recovery Prevent malware re-infection from BMR and system state backups Restore AD to any hardware (virtual or physical) Regain control of a compromised AD Ensure the integrity of highly sensitive AD forests

New threats, new game plan: disaster recovery for active directory
Webinar | New threats, new game plan: disaster recovery for active directory

It’s crucial that businesses update their recovery playbooks and know how to bounce back. If you are hit by ransomware – defenders need to be able to recover active directory cleanly, recover it to the cloud or alternate hardware, and automate recovery to reduce downtime and the impact of attacks. However, establishing and maintaining these recovery capabilities requires some effort. But how much? Join Semperis and a select group of industry thought leaders to discuss how to protect your active directory from today’s threats, how to rewrite your strategy to recover, and clean-up after an attack.

Active Directory Boise ISSA Chapter Meeting
Webinar | Boise ISSA May 2020 Virtual Meeting

Virtual chapter meeting featuring a presentation from Chief Architect at Semperis, Gil Kirkpatrick. Microsoft’s Active Directory is the foundation for enterprise hybrid identity systems, and it has become a primary target of cyber-criminals. The main threat to Active Directory is no longer natural disasters or administrative errors, but instead ransomware and wiperware attacks that can take the entire enterprise IT identity infrastructure down in seconds. These new threats make recovering Active Directory quickly and safely more important than ever. Gil will discuss the new threat model, how it affects your ability to recover Active Directory and the things you need to consider when rethinking your disaster recovery plans.

Ransomware vs. Active Directory Backups
Webinar | Ransomware vs. Active Directory Backups: What Can Throw a Wrench into Your Disaster Recovery Process?

Webinar | Attacking & Defending Active Directory Workshop

How do you defend Active Directory, aka the “keys to the kingdom,” if you don’t know where the attacks are coming from? Hackers constantly find new ways to break into AD. And once inside, they’re increasingly adept at covering their tracks to silently create backdoors and establish persistent privileged access. In this workshop, we’ll demonstrate real-world attacks that are frequently used against AD, including credential theft, Kerberos-based attacks, Group Policy-based attacks, and ACL attacks. The expert presenters will play out both perspectives: attacker and defender. This is a red vs. blue standoff, so don’t expect a bunch of slideware. Register now!
