Putting a Pause on "Active Directory Security for Cyber Security Experts"


I am sorry to inform you that I have decided to pause the Active Directory Security for Cyber Security Experts for now.

The reason is remarkably simple - over the last few weeks, I've had sufficient opportunity to assess just how much most IT professionals know about Active Directory Security, and I have arrived at the conclusion that most organizations and their IT personnel do not even seem to know intermediate level Active Directory Security.

Thus, there does not appear to be much point in me trying to spend my extremely valuable time on trying to teach them the very basics of Active Directory Security, such as the profound yet substantial difference between knowing "Who has what permissions in Active Directory" and "Who has what effective permissions in Active Directory.

Instead, I have decided that we will try and find a way to democratize the unique insights that our Gold Finger tooling provides, for the whole world, so millions of IT professionals worldwide could make mission-critical privileged access assessments in Active Directory without having to invest hundreds of hours in learning advanced Active Directory Security.

In other words, there is no time to teach millions of IT professionals the level of Active Directory Security that they ideally need to know to be in a position to adequately secure and defend Active Directory deployments. Instead, it appears that we will just have to empower them to be able to do so quickly and efficiently.

I've asked our Engineering Team to work on this right away, and early next year we may introduce something to facilitate this objective, subsequent to which I will consider commencing "Active Directory Security for Cyber Security Experts."

Thank you. Be well and stay safe.

Best wishes,
