Enterprise PowerShell for Remote Security Assessment

  • James Tarala
  • Saturday, January 17th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm

As organizations assess the security of their information systems, the need for automation has become more and more apparent. Not only are organizations attempting to automate their assessments, the need is becoming more pressing to perform assessments centrally against large numbers of enterprise systems. Forensic analysts, incident handlers, penetration testers, and auditors all regularly find themselves in situations where they need to remotely assess a large number of systems through an automated set of tools. Microsoft's PowerShell scripting language has become the defacto standard for many organizations looking to perform this level of distributed automation. In this presentation James Tarala, of Enclave Security, will describe to students the enterprise capabilities PowerShell offers and show practical examples of how PowerShell can be used to perform large scale Windows security assessments.
