Anatomy of a Cyberattack

The frequency and types of cyberattacks facing organizations have multiplied dramatically over the last 5 years. Despite this, many firms continue to follow the same approaches to cyber defense they did 10 to 15 years ago. Unfortunately, while most of these did not work very well then, they are mostly ineffective today. Indeed, in 2017, 88% of breaches were accomplished using nine attack vectors that were identified in 2014 (Verizon, n.d.). Your cyber defense was ineffective then and it’s still ineffective today. Moreover, while new approaches and “security mantras” abound, their effectiveness in protecting us is questionable.

Replacing Active Directory Users and Computers

IT organizations attempting to manage Microsoft Active Directory Users, Groups, and Exchange Mailboxes have historically had to utilize multiple tool sets. Administrators would perform one set of tasks using the Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) tool while another had to be performed in the Exchange Admin tools. LDAP directories required a third interface and now with Office 365 they have a fourth tool-set for managing users and mailboxes. This paper details techniques for managing disparate systems with a single tool.
