Allow us to bring to your attention our NEW course:

SEC505: Securing Windows and Resisting Malware course presented by Jason Fossen.

In April of 2014, Microsoft will stop releasing any new security patches for Windows XP. Like it or not, migrating off Windows XP is no longer optional, the clock is counting down. The Securing Windows and Resisting Malware course is fully updated for Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, Server 2008-R2, and Windows 7.

This course is about the most important things to do to secure Windows and how to minimize the impact on users of these changes. You'll see the instructor demo the important steps live, and you can follow along on your laptop. The manuals are filled with screenshots and step-by-step exercises, so you can do the steps alongside the instructor in seminar or later on your own time if you prefer.

We've all got anti-virus scanners, but what else needs to be done to combat malware and intruders using Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) techniques? Today's weapon of choice for hackers is stealthy malware with remote control channels, preferably with autonomous worm capabilities, installed through client-side exploits. While other courses focus on detection or remediation, the goal of this course is to prevent the infection in the first place (after all, first things first).

Especially in Server 2012 and beyond, PowerShell dominates Windows scripting and automation. It seems everything can be managed through PowerShell now. And if there's a needed skill that will most benefit the career of a Windows specialist, it's being able to write PowerShell scripts, because most of your competition will lack scripting skills, so it's a great way to make your resume stand out. This course devotes an entire day to PowerShell scripting, but you don't need any prior scripting experience.

This course will also prepare you for the GIAC Certified Windows Security Administrator (GCWN) certification exam to help prove your security skills and Windows expertise.
