- Hardening Azure AD in the Face of Emerging Threats
Overview: In September of 2021, Trimarc Founder & CTO Sean Metcalf presented at Quest's The Experts Conference. "This presentation covers some attacks that involve Microsoft cloud on-prem components as well as those against the Microsoft cloud directly. After discussing attacks and specific defenses, I will wrap up with some key recommendations. Note: There will be some duplication among recommendations. That’s on purpose – if I mention something more than once, that means it’s really important!" You can download Sean's slides below. No registration required. Enjoy!

- Defending The Identity Nexus
In October of 2022, Founder and CTO of Trimarc Security Sean Metcalf gave a talk The Experts Conference on defending the Identity Nexus. Abstract: As technology has evolved, so has the use of the different platforms – and inter-connecting these platforms to increase efficiencies. The challenge is that attackers leverage these connection points to gain access to data, escalate privileges, and persist. This session explores a typical corporate environment, its configuration and its weaknesses. The technology platforms explored include Active Directory, VMware vSphere, Azure AD, and Azure (IaaS, aka "cloud datacenter"). We will talk through common integration and configuration components, how attackers take advantage of these connections, and how to mitigate these attack techniques. The scenarios covered during this talk include how an attacker with "user" rights in one platform can leverage connection points and configured access to escalate privileges in another.
