HAWTHORNE, NJ--(September 12, 2017) - STEALTHbits Technologies Inc., a leading cybersecurity software company focused on protecting an organization's credentials and data, today announced the availability of its Active Directory (AD) Attacks Video and Webinar Training series on Randy Franklin Smith's Ultimate Windows Security website.
"When STEALTHbits approached me about making the AD Attacks training series available on Ultimate Windows Security, I viewed the content and felt it would serve a growing need among my audience to learn how to protect against these attacks," noted Randy Franklin Smith, Microsoft MVP and Founder of Monterey Technology Group. "The video and webinar training series provides in-depth information participants can start applying right away in their organizations."
The comprehensive four-part Active Directory Attacks Video Training series begins with a review of AD security fundamentals and then details how attackers exploit them to perform reconnaissance, escalate privileges, and achieve persistence to accomplish their goals:
- Overview: Active Directory Security
- Attack 1: Credential Theft & Domain Compromise
- Attack 2: Service Accounts
- Attack 3: AD Permissions
The video series is complemented by two in-depth webinars hosted by Smith on how to detect and protect against Active Directory attacks.
"There are a variety of tools like PowerSploit, BloodHound, and Mimikatz that enable even newbie attackers to take advantage of Active Directory vulnerabilities and native features to steal credentials," said Jeff Warren, STEALTHbits SVP of Technical Product Management. "Compounding this problem is the fact that many companies are unaware of how attackers use these tools across the kill chain to gain admin rights and exfiltrate sensitive information."
"With this training series available on Ultimate Windows Security, we hope to educate security professionals on how to detect, block, and mitigate Active Directory attacks so they don't fall victim to a data breach," added Warren.
