In this informative webinar, join industry expert and Penton contributor Nick Cavalancia, as he discusses:

  • Starting with AD: What can you do to cleanup and ensure a secure AD configuration?
  • The Ever-Changing Perimeter: Ways to limit exposure as you extend AD.
  • Users – the Threat Beyond the Perimeter: How to effectively deal with the greatest gap in your security – your users.
