PowerShell Essentials for Bolstering AD and Azure AD Security

About the Webinar

Because of the key role that Active Directory plays in controlling access to IT systems, keeping AD secure must be a priority. One way to stay on top of what’s happening in AD and Azure AD is to use PowerShell, Microsoft's command-line shell and scripting language.

In this webinar, IT security expert Russell Smith teaches the basics of PowerShell and shows how you can use it to help identify suspicious activity in Azure AD and Active Directory. Specifically, by the end of the session, you will be able to use PowerShell to:

  • Connect remotely to Azure AD
  • Report on Azure AD sign-in and audit logs
  • Report on the following aspects of Active Directory:
    • Inactive user accounts
    • Privileged group membership
    • Schema changes
