Azure AD 101: Cloud identity needs new security approaches

Link visible for attendees

Security identity has never been an easy task, and with Azure AD not only do we have similar security challenges of Active Directory brought forward, but a whole bunch of new ones as well. And if we don't learn from mistakes of the past, we are destined to repeat them. In this conversation we'll look at architectural approaches and recommendations to managing and securing Azure AD. We'll dive into the fundamental changes in privileges access - covering the Microsoft privileges access models for the cloud as well as common misconceptions about how to properly secure that access. With multi-cloud and continued application integration, we'll also discuss how those tasked with securing Azure AD need to ensure that all user accounts have tight security controls, as privileges access comes in all shapes and sizes these days.

Link visible for attendees

  • Regardless of industry vertical or organization composition, there are common security misconfigurations that repeat through Azure AD security assessments. Attacks on the cloud are continually becoming more commonplace, and it’s imperative that we tighten security on our Azure AD tenants. For this session, we’ll dive into these most common security mistakes that every organization should rectify in their Azure AD tenant. We’ll look at what the misconfigurations are, why it’s so important to resolve them, and discuss some of the common thought processes that lead up to these misconfigurations. For each item we’ll also walk through what a strong security configuration looks like for resolution.
