Please join us on Friday, February 5th, 2021 for “Hacking Windows Security: An hour of critical thinking on securing servers, workstations, and Active Directory”.


Joining me for this discussion will be:

In just one hour we’re going to tackle as many issues under the Windows Security umbrella as humanly possible. Topics such as:

  • Hardening Windows servers, workstations, and Active Directory
  • Misconfigurations and how to reveal those issues.
  • When RDP (remote desktop protocol) and SMB (server message block) protocols are exposed
  • Common Windows exploits
  • A central way to look at systems
  • Collecting logs and why isn’t Windows already logging?

It all starts at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern. At the end of the hour [11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern] we’ll switch gears into a series of impromptu 1-on-1 five-minute meetings where everyone will be randomly paired. Nothing to prepare, we’ll do the matching.
