Stay current with critical security hot fixes. Be vigilant about Domain Controller security. 

The Active Directory (AD) Domain Controller (DC) is one of the most important servers in your enterprise. The DC holds all of the individual identities (usernames and passwords) along with their fundamental access rights (group membership). If the DC falls behind on security patches, then it will be vulnerable to malware or malicious hackers looking to assume and leverage increased privileges. Test and apply critical security hot fixes in short order to minimize the window of exposure and reduce the possibility of falling victim to publicly documented exploits.

In this slideshow, Azaleos identifies tips focusing on Active Directory improvements. They have collected the following best practices from their network operations centers for making Active Directory run more smoothly in 2012. These tips cover a lot of ground, from consolidation down to smaller items, such as using the new recycle bin feature. Start small and tackle each of these items gradually. This will enable you to stay current with required fixes, while monitoring the health, performance and functionality of your AD enterprise for smooth sailing into the new year.
