Ransomware: How attackers weaponize Active Directory, and what defence measures can stop them

Ransomware 2.0 not only encrypts the sensitive data in machines but also steals credentials so they can be sold on the dark web or used to launch more disastrous attacks. Therefore, almost all ransomware techniques now target Active Directory (AD). How do you protect AD from such sophisticated ransomware attacks? We’ve put together a guide that explores how ransomware attacks exploit AD and discusses defence measures organisations should adopt.

What’s in the guide:

  • Why ransomware is seeing success.
  • Real-world examples of ransomware attacks that exploited Active Directory.
  • Common stages in a ransomware attack that involve Active Directory exploitation.
  • 5 defence measures that can stop ransomware spreading through Active Directory.
