Part 1
Securing Active Directory: Leveraging UBA to Detect Insider Attacks

SIEM solutions are very good at detecting changes to known objects and settings that should not change. However, SIEM solutions traditionally do not do a good job of detecting "allowed attackers", which are employees that are granted access, but do bad things with their access.

ADAudit Plus and Log360 now come with UBA/UEBA which can help organizations detect insider attacks (allowed attackers) and give administrators more time to react to these threats. 

Part 2
Active Directory Clean-up! Clear out, secure, and optimize your current AD

Active Directory can become like your storage area in your house. Over time, it gets cluttered and hard to find anything (Not to mention a fire hazard!). Let Derek Melber guide you through some of the most important, and difficult to create, reports that will give you answers to what you need to clean up and secure, so you can get AD running optimally again.
