- Least Privilege for Endpoints: Most corporate desktops are not secured, protected, nor safe. Whether you are running Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, or 8 most of these end point computers are opening up security holes for the entire network. The reasons these end point computers are insecure vary. Regardless of the reason, the root result of the insecurity is due to the fact that user is a local administrator on the computer. Some might ask what about a solution to this dilemma? The solution is to implement least privilege, which is also referred to as Least Privilege User Access (LUA). In this workshop, Derek Melber will guide you through the proper solutions, and expose you to the failed solutions, in solving this complex issue with desktops. When you have completed this workshop, you will have all you need to develop and deploy a least privilege solution in your company.
