Securing Windows with Group Policy - Josh Rickard (ShowMeCon 2018) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Securing Windows with Group Policy
Josh Rickard

ShowMeCon 2018

Group Policy exists in almost every modern business environment. Many organizations either do not use it or do not use it as extensively as they should. We all face problems with securing our environment, but most do not realize they have the perfect tool to lock down and protect their organization. Do you understand Group Policy processing? Did you know you can manage both Active Directory groups and user rights? What about running Scheduled Tasks and do you even Manage Services, bro? Why do all your Administrative accounts have extra permissions like Debug Programs? And why the hell are you afraid of AppLocker? Remember, Group Policy is an ENTERPRISE scale registry editor.

Bio: Josh's primary focus is in Windows security and PowerShell automation. He is a GIAC Certified Windows Security Administrator (GCWN) and GIAC Certified Forensic Analyst (GCFA). You can reach Josh at MSAdministrator.com or on Twitter at @MS_dministrator.
