The Critical Security Controls project describes the most important tasks to perform to secure a network. Some controls are easy to understand and implement, while others can be a challenge, especially in an Active Directory environment. In this webcast, the SANS Windows Security (SEC505) author and instructor, Jason Fossen, will talk about those Critical Controls which are the most effective and the most difficult to implement when securing Windows systems. Especially important is how to do so without spending a fortune, preferably using built-in tools we already have, like PowerShell and Group Policy."
