Improving Active Directory security can help organizations reduce cyber insurance costs amidst rising premiums due to increased cybercrime impacts. Factors driving up cyber insurance rates include more remote work, increased cyberattacks, more claims, and higher payouts. Securing Active Directory is crucial as it’s a primary target for attackers due to its central role in managing access and policies. To determine coverage eligibility, cyber insurers assess organizations’ Active Directory security measures, including security audits, weak password blocking, access control, patch management, and protection of privileged accounts.
