Tenable – The AD Enigma and a Hackers Perspective


Every organization wants to protect its Active Directory environment, knowing AD holds the keys to the kingdom, but AD is a mystery for many. Feature complexity and frequent live changes make it challenging to illuminate the big picture. In the cat and mouse game of hack and defend, where traditional exploits are not required, being proactive is essential to success.

Joe Buchanan is presently VP Sales Engineering at Hunters. Responsible for leading a global team of SEs helping customers solve cyber security challenges. Previously Joe served roles at Cisco Systems as the Global SE Director leading the Secure Workload and Analytics focused on network detection and response. Along as Vice President of Systems Engineering at Lancope.

In this presentation we will learn how to:

Cover the entire attack surface using vendor-agnostic data ingestion, normalization and retention across all your security and IT tools at a predictable cost

Empower security teams with built-in detection engineering, data correlation, and automatic investigation to overcome volume, complexity, and false positives

Minimize security risk by mitigating real threats faster and more reliably than SIEMs

Parking Lot Party – May 17th – 11am-1pm

We will also have one of our famous Parking Lot Parties from 11am-1pm at Brewery Vivant where you can once again get an awesome 4 pack of beer from the brewery including 2 cans of the Tropical Saison (which comes out on 5/12) and 2 cans of the Strawberry Rhubarb.

Plus you will receive the official CloudCon 2022 umbrella and some SWAG from our sponsors as well.

We look forward to seeing you there!
