In today’s fast-paced IT world, keeping things secure and simple is a must. Enter Microsoft’s modern Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) – the superhero your organization needs for managing local admin passwords. Why should you care? Imagine every local admin password being unique, randomized, and automatically updated – all without you having to do a thing. That’s the magic of LAPS, protecting you from lateral movement attacks and unauthorized access.

We’ll start by breaking down what LAPS is all about and why it’s a game-changer. Or maybe you were already playing the game for a while, and ready for “Game 2.0.. LAPS 2.0!” (Of course, Microsoft doesn’t call it that, but that’s really what it is.) Learn from 19-Time Microsoft MVP Jeremy Moskowitz about LAPS 1.0 vs. LAPS 2.0: similarities and differences. Then we’ll dive into how to set up and configure LAPS, making it easy to integrate with either Active Directory and Azure AD… we mean “Entra ID.” You’ll learn best practices and real-world examples to show how LAPS can transform your IT environment. Plus, we’ll cover some troubleshooting tips and advanced features to customize LAPS just the way you need it.

By the end of this session, you’ll be ready to take your organization’s security to the next level with LAPS 2.0 (aka modern LAPS!). Join us for a fun, informative, and practical look at how LAPS can make your life easier and your systems more secure.

You will learn:

  • About LAPS 1.0 vs LAPS 2.0.
  • Where to store LAPS passwords and how to retrieve them
  • The moving parts of LAPS to get it deployed right the first time
