Available from MIS Training Institute
In this four-day, hands-on seminar from MIS Training Institute you will learn how to centrally manage, configure, lock down, and audit each Windows Server in your organization. You will discover how each security control area of Windows Server 2003 is designed to work. You will use built-in and industry recognized tools to ensure your Windows Servers are in compliance with corporate security policy. You will develop a detailed Windows audit program and learn how to audit and implement it. You will learn how to gather, analyze, research, and report your findings.
Starting with a brief look at Active Directory, you will cover such key concepts as forests, trees, domains, and organizational units, and how they all fit into the security model of Windows. Then, you will go over user and group administration, user rights, and data resource protection with Access Control Lists. In hands-on labs you will perform a combination of both administrative- and audit-related tasks to deepen your grasp of Windows security and how to locate risks and inadequate controls. You will also cover each item in Microsoft’s Baseline Security Checklist for Windows Server as well as many additional risks. You will explore the differences between Windows 2000, 2003, and 2008, and how they affect security and audit processes.
