  1. Presentation (7:00 pm – 8:00 pm): Active Directory Exploitation Makes Network Security Irrelevant

 

Abstract:

 

Clayton Fields, Vice President of Javelin Networks, will present on why domain security and network security approaches need to be different and how Active Directory is vulnerable by design.  Domain exploitation has been the common tradecraft in every major threat campaign recently published.

 

With this presentation and a lively Q&A session, Clayton hopes to spread the word about the importance of domain security in security programs.
