LDAP Monitoring for Security

LDAP Monitoring LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an application protocol for querying and modifying items in directory service providers like Active Directory (AD). AD, by contrast, is a directory services database, and LDAP is one of the protocols you can use to talk to it. Because Microsoft provides no easy way to monitor LDAP queries, to see the query that was issued and where it came from, insider threat actors can leverage this blind spot to perform reconnaissance activit…

5 Essential Steps to EU GDPR – Part 2: GDPR, the Data Access Governance Project

In part one we looked at the questions organisations must address when dealing with DSARs (Data Subject Access Request).

5 Essential Steps to EU GDPR

Part 1: Understand the Basic Requirements of GDPR Despite the GDPR being marked as a clearer to understand regulation, it’s still a mine field of legal and compliance requirements, interpretations and uncertainty. The purpose of this blog series is to help you understand the fundamental requirements of GDPR by peeling back the layers of legality, bureaucracy and spin.
