Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs) are an essential part of the process of securing an Active Directory infrastructure. The purpose of this webinar is to provide a guide to the IT community on how to design, deploy and maintain PAWs at the Tier-0 level. Indeed, the PAW concept is applicable to all Tiers of an Active Directory environment, but if we can consider that it is possible to do without dedicated administration stations on Tier-1 and Tier-2 it is absolutely necessary to devote time to a PAWs deployment project for Tier-0.
First, we will provide an explanation of the prerequisites for the Active Directory design, followed by the configurations to be carried out concerning users and groups (access restrictions, administration groups, etc.).
Following this part, the physical security will be covered with, among others, the configuration for System Guard and BitLocker.
Then we will cover the network security, mainly focused on the configuration of the Firewall and the different authorized flows.
Finally, we will focus on system security (based on the CIS standards) and on the monitoring part.
