Best Practices for Securing Active Directory

 

Microsoft have released a new document which contains best practice recommendations to assist organisations in enhancing the security of their Active Directory installations.

Microsoft state that “In implementing these recommendations, organisations will be able to identify and prioritise security activities, protect key segments of their organisation’s computing infrastructure and create controls that significantly decrease the likelihood of successful attacks against critical components of the IT environment“.

This document discusses the most common attacks against Active Directory and countermeasures to reduce the attack surface, and recommendations for recovery in the event of complete compromise.

  1. Really interesting article Mark, thanks for this. I think there are still a lot of organisations out their how don’t have any form of meaningful security and auditing around Active Directory which is clearly something that needs to change. I’ll share this on linkedin and with our customers.. I’d like to think there are some instances here where we could help in automating the monitoring and auditing of Active Directory, http://www.netwrix.co,uk
