  • Identity-Centric Healthcare Security: Defending the First Responders Recorded: Sep 10 2020 62 mins
    Gil Kirkpatrick and Luke Kane
    While COVID-19 is disrupting many aspects of daily life, it's not slowing down the proliferation of cyberattacks targeting healthcare organizations, both large and small. This webinar will cover the cybersecurity challenges unique to the healthcare industry and how COVID-19 has raised the stakes. We'll also share real-world stories from authorities in the field and provide strategies that you can implement to be resilient during these turbulent times.

    Most of us are familiar with Zero Trust Architecture, but how do we implement this strategy seamlessly within platforms that contain highly sensitive data such as electronic medical records (EMR) and other protected health information (PHI)? It begins with acknowledging "identity as the perimeter" and establishing an identity-centric security strategy. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is an excellent structure for building this strategy.

    Core topics include:
    - Why medical devices are a highly targeted attack vector
    - How to work with multiple identity systems in your environment
    - What role do Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) play in this space
    - Where does compliancy fall in the spectrum (PHI, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, etc.)
    - NIST Cybersecurity Framework
  • Podcast | Hope Is Not a Strategy: The Security Blueprint for SMBs and Beyond Recorded: Sep 10 2020 18 mins
    Dominic Vogel
    In this week's episode, we have Dominic Vogel, the Founder & Chief Strategist at CyberSC, walking through the mistakes and cybersecurity misconceptions of small to mid-size businesses. The prevalence of attacks today means SMBs are more vulnerable to become targets or caught in the crossfire. Dominic and Sean cover everything from the most common security mistakes made at the small to mid-size business level to how your security posture can be an advantage in securing new business. One thing remains certain: hope is not a strategy.
  • Podcast | The Expert Guide to Azure AD Connect Recorded: Sep 3 2020 19 mins
    Jorge de Almeida Pinto | Lead Engineer at IAM Technologies
    In Episode 9, Jorge de Almeida Pinto talks with Sean about all things Azure AD Connect, your link between Active Directory and Azure AD.

    Azure AD Connect is Microsoft's identity synchronization mechanism between on-premises Active Directory and in-the-cloud Azure Active Directory. This makes it a critical piece of your hybrid infrastructure. Join us to learn about its features, how to upgrade it, and the very real consequences of not keeping AD Connect up to date.

    Episode Highlights:
  • Podcast | Operating in the Age of Zero Trust and Machine Learning Recorded: Aug 20 2020 25 mins
    Hed Kovetz
    The rapid shift in priorities among today’s enterprises is leaving security professionals applying these zero trust— “trust no-one, verify everything”— principles to existing on-premises networks. In this episode, Sean’s talking with Hed Kovetz, Silverfort CEO and Co-Founder. They discuss not only what “zero trust network” means, but the risk in a perimeterless era of allowing users on untrusted devices to access broad internal network access.
  • Podcast | Choosing the Right Security Solution, Not the Temporary One Recorded: Aug 14 2020 16 mins
    Sander Berkouwer
    Nothing is as permanent in IT as a temporary solution. Sander Berkouwer, 11-time Microsoft MVP and CTO of SCCT, joins Sean on the Hybrid Identity Protection Podcast to discuss the "new normal," dynamics of Azure AD B2B, and what cutting corners in the world of identity access can bring about for administrators.

  • Windows Group Policy: Powerful Configuration Tool or Hacker’s Best Friend? Recorded: Jul 16 2020 61 mins
    Darren Mar-Elia
    What started as a sleepy technology for efficiently configuring 1000s of Windows desktops and servers, has now become a gold mine for attackers looking to expose your security posture and leverage your GPOs as “malware delivery vehicles”.

    In this webinar, Darren Mar-Elia (the “GPOGUY”) will summarize the nearly 4 years of research he’s done on the various ways attackers are exploiting GP. More importantly, he will break down the key steps you can take to defend your Group Policy environment, and therefore your Windows environment, from abuse.

    During this workshop, we’ll demonstrate:

    - How attackers use Group Policy for reconnaissance
    - How attackers use Group Policy as a vector for malware
    - How you can configure your AD and GPOs to prevent abuse
    - Best practices for managing Group Policy with security in mind

  • The Dos and Don’ts of Recovering Active Directory from a Scorched Earth Disaster Recorded: May 27 2020 62 mins
    Gil Kirkpatrick and Guido Grillenmeier
    The threat to Active Directory from ransomware and wiper attacks is generally understood, but the complexity of forest recovery is not. In “the good old days," AD recovery meant recovering AD from natural disasters and operational errors. But cyberattacks changed all that. With AD becoming a prime target for widespread, business-crippling attacks, it’s time to think “cyber-first."

    In this technical workshop, you’ll learn the dos and don’ts of recovering AD from a cyber disaster.

    The Presenters:
    - Guido Grillenmeier, Microsoft MVP & Chief Technologist, DXC Technology

    - Gil Kirkpatrick, Microsoft MVP & Chief Architect, Semperis

  • Is Remote Access Putting Your Organization at Risk? Recorded: May 19 2020 61 mins
    Hed Kovetz, CEO and Co-Founder, Silverfort and Gil Kirkpatrick, Chief Architect, Semperis
    Recent events forced us to change the way we work and today most employees are working remotely. While enabling remote access is critical these days, it’s also exposing us to more risk: when hundreds of users are inside the network – who is monitoring and validating that access to our most sensitive assets is legitimate and secure?

    In this webinar, we will discuss why remote access is putting organizations at risk. We will review examples of relevant attacks that target our most critical assets, like Active Directory. Finally, we’ll discuss what should be done to mitigate the threat and protect sensitive assets from breach and compromise.
  • Podcast: Cover Your SAAS: Getting a Handle on Access and Activity in a Cloud-F Recorded: May 6 2020 21 mins
    Ben Johnson
    With remote workforces accelerating digital transformation, security teams are shifting their mindset from controlling assets to managing access. This is not easy, especially in a cloud-first world where ease of installation and free trials reign supreme.

  • Ransomware vs. Active Directory Backups Webinar Recorded: Apr 28 2020 61 mins
    Sean Deuby and Clark Brown
    What Can Throw a Wrench Into Your Disaster Recovery Process?
    When a ransomware or wiper attack takes out the domain controllers, traditional recovery processes can drag on for days or even weeks. Considering that cyber disasters now strike more frequently and inflict more business damage than natural disasters, it’s time to think “cyber-first.”

    Cyber-first requirements for Active Directory recovery:
    • Fully automate AD forest recovery
    • Prevent malware re-infection from BMR and system state backups
    • Restore AD to any hardware (virtual or physical)
    • Regain control of a compromised AD
    • Ensure the integrity of highly sensitive AD forests

    Presented by Sean Deuby (Director of Services at Semperis) and Clark Brown (Partner and Practice Leader at Alescent)
  • Podcast: Provisioning Identities with Security First Frame of Mind in Recorded: Apr 16 2020 15 mins
    Andrew Cedergren
    In this premiere episode of the HIP Podcast, host Sean Deuby is joined by IAM, Senior Security Engineer Lead at Delta Airlines, Andrew Cedergren. Having worked across directory services and information security for over 15 years, Andrew offers his expert perspective on the day-to-day fundamentals of building, operating and securing the hybrid enterprise.

  • Attacking and Defending AD Workshop Recorded: Apr 2 2020 71 mins
    Darren Mar-Elia and Andy Robbins
    How do you defend Active Directory, aka the “keys to the kingdom,” if you don’t know where the attacks are coming from? Hackers constantly find new ways to break into AD. And once inside, they’re increasingly adept at covering their tracks to silently create backdoors and establish persistent privileged access.

    In this workshop, we’ll demonstrate real-world attacks that are frequently used against AD, including credential theft, Kerberos-based attacks, Group Policy-based attacks, and ACL attacks.

    The expert presenters will play out both perspectives: attacker and defender. This is a red vs. blue standoff, so don’t expect a bunch of slideware.
