Most organizations operate a Microsoft-centric tech stack that is core to their business. Due to the wide adoption of the Microsoft platform, it is all too often targeted by attackers using common techniques and tactics including Windows exploits, compromising Active Directory user accounts and leveraging Azure cloud and server misconfigurations to get a foothold and deploy ransomware.

The challenge is that most organizations have limited to no visibility into these common threats due to the complexity and time required to deploy legacy detection solutions, including security operations tools such as security information and event management (SIEM).

During this session, we will review some of the most common techniques and tactics used to compromise Microsoft environments. We will then provide advice on ways to gain visibility into these real threats using Blumira’s automated threat detection and response platform.

Join Patrick Garrity, VP Operations at Blumira and Jeff Heim, Security Solution Architect at World Wide Technology, for a discussion on Detection and Responding to Threats Across a Microsoft Centric Environment.

In this roundtable, you’ll learn about:

  • Common Azure techniques and tactics used by adversaries
  • Common Office 365 techniques and tactics used by adversaries
  • Evasive Windows Server techniques and tactics used by adversaries
  • Common Microsoft misconfigurations that result in security incidents
  • How Blumira can help you gain early visibility into Microsoft threats and prevent security incidents like a ransomware infection
