Active Directory (AD) is a powerful authentication and directory service used by organizations worldwide. With this ubiquity and power comes the potential for abuse. Insider threats offer some of the most potentials for destruction. Many internal users have over-provisioned access and visibility into the internal network.
Insiders’ level of access and trust in a network leads to unique vulnerabilities. Network security often focuses on keeping a threat actor out, not on existing users’ security and potential vulnerabilities. Staying on top of potential threats means protecting against inside and outside threats, such as Insecure Devices, Over-Provisioned Access, and Weak Password Policies.
