Description

The goal is to have a more dynamic way to administer/manage our Active Directory environment. It will allow us to segment the management of the areas amongst the NSS. and also implement best security practices by using the Principle of Least Privilege. By restructuring AD, it will make it easier for the NSS and the NetOps to manage Desktops, Servers, and VCI without affecting each other.

Goals

  1. Tech Plan - Information Security

  2. Tech Plan - Reengineer IIT staff and processes to better align with Student Success and District Initiatives.

Risks

  1. Medium Unknown Complexity

    Tools used to manage certain parts of AD will need to be re-configured to match the new structure

    May "break" service accounts

    May disable user/computer accounts being used in production

Intangible Benefits

Management of Active Directory Simplified

Automation of account life cycle simplified

Issuance of management abilities to certain parts of AD to a subset of technicians

Cleaning of AD accounts (computer/user)
