As the velocity of IT operations increases, automation is becoming critical for auditors and compliance professionals. In this session, we will cover the basics of using PowerShell for common infosec, compliance and audit tasks. We will make heavy use of demonstrations to explore the object-oriented nature of the shell, important commands for getting help, and how to select, sort, filter and transform results from native Windows tools. We will compare the Windows and Core versions of PowerShell and discuss when it may be appropriate to use PowerShell on non-Windows systems.
