4 AD Attacks and How to Protect Against Them

I was speaking with an Active Directory Security Engineer from a large, global pharmaceutical company recently and asked him the most classic question in the Product Management handbook: “What keeps you up at night?” So cliché (I know), but sometimes instead of an eye roll, you get a real gem, which is exactly what happened. He said, “We’ve got a lot of good protections in place and run a pretty tight ship, but the worst thing that I think could happen is someone stealing our ‘dit’ file.” I’…
