Time to Respectfully Take Microsoft to Active Directory Security School
My apologies for the month-long absence. About a month ago, something was brought to my attention and it made me realize that in the interest of the foundational organizational cyber security of organizations worldwide, we need to help Microsoft better understand Active Directory Security. I've thus been at work building something, and I think its time we share it with the world.
So, in the coming week, i.e. sometime between Monday, Oct 17, 2016 and Friday, Oct 21, 2016 I will be most respectfully and publicly taking Microsoft to Active Directory Security school, right here on this cyber blog, in a blog post befittingly titled "Defending Active Directory against Cyberattacks"
Please know that it is only in the interest of organizational cyber security worldwide that we'll be doing so publicly i.e. so that 20,000+ organizations across 150+ countries worldwide can also instantly have access to valuable, effective and immediately actionable Active Directory security insight and guidance, which is the need of the proverbial hour.
Please also know that as a deeply passionate ex-Microsoftie, I have great respect for Microsoft, and in fact have spent the last 15 years working to help make 1000s of Microsoft's customers across the world more secure, so it is only in Microsoft's best interest and in the best interest of 1000s of the world's biggest organizations that today operate on Microsoft Active Directory, that I have decided to do so.
If you're familiar with my background and some of my previous blog entries, then you'll want to tune in right here on Monday morning.
