Recommended Reading for Microsoft for "Active Directory Security School"

Dear Microsoft,

Today is February 01, 2017. I was scheduled to start our 30-day Advanced Active Directory Security School for all of you. Unfortunately, something fascinating came up, so let's start on Wednesday, May 22, 2017 instead, shall we?

Perhaps that will give you all enough time to prep for this advanced Active Directory Security school (and/or boot camp), so until then, to help you come up-to-speed and get ready for school, here's some recommended reading -
1.  The Paramount Brief
2.  Active Directory Privilege Escalation
3.  A Letter to Benjamin Delpy
4. A Simple $100B Question for Microsoft 
5.  Active Directory Beyond the MCSE for the Black Hat Conference
6.  A Simple Trillion Dollar Question for Microsoft
7.  The OPM Data Hack
8.  Responding to a Domain Admin Account Compromise
9.  Trillion Dollar Cyber Security Insight for President Donald Trump
10.  Who needs WMDs Today? 

If you're short on time, given that you're all "doing more with less", and can read only one though, then you'll want to make it this one - The Top-10 Ways in which an Intruder or a Rogue Insider Could Escalate Privilege to Domain Admin in Active Directory

Hopefully you'll find the reading helpful, and sorry for the slight delay. Lets commence school on Monday, May 22, 2017.
