Learn how to recover and secure Active Directory from cyberattacks

Learn how to recover Active Directory quickly and efficiently while ensuring the security of the recovered environment


Organizations are aware of the significant if not catastrophic impact an Active Directory (AD) outage would have on operations, yet many are not confident in their ability to recover AD quickly and most have not tested their AD recovery plan.

As critical as AD is to businesses, enterprises struggle to manage it securely while embracing cloud computing and remote workforces. The growing complexity of IT environments has increased the complexity of AD management, and this directly impacts incident response.

Join this session to learn directions for recovering AD as well as specific guidelines for securing AD from cyberattacks, including:

  • Identifying indicators of exposure (IoEs)
  • Preparing for AD attack remediation
  • Understanding limitations of native AD rollback capabilities
  • Ensuring post-attack recovery does not re-introduce malware
