For many, Active Directory lies at the foundation of IT infrastructure and represent the single most critical system and a vital IT asset because it provides mechanisms of authentication and authorization. With changes made to Active Directory every day, it’s easy even for the most skilled AD administrator to lose track of security and group membership changes and events of access to critical resources and secured data. Recent high-profile security breaches that corporations experienced prove insufficiency of traditional security efforts and demonstrate how important it is to ensure that the key to your business – Active Directory and the identity data it contains – is as safe as you can make it.

In this webinar, 11-time directory services MVP and Windows IT Pro Technical Director Sean Deuby joins Jeff Melnick from Netwrix to discuss the top 5 critical AD changes to audit for security and compliance, explain why they are important and what can really happen if you don’t audit these changes. This webinar will also cover how Netwrix Auditor can help address the auditing requirements for streamlined compliance, strengthened security and simplified root causes analysis of AD issues.
