SANS vLive!: Automating Compliance & Windows Domain Audits with David Hoelzer

Based on the positive feedback we received from the vLive! course we promoted with SANS recently, we’re doing it again!

Everyone has a Microsoft Windows system, and most of us have a lot of them.  How can you know whether or not your systems are configured securely?  How do you know that users are following security policies that apply to systems in your domain?  How can you manage the security of thousands of systems at the same time?

In this two hour class David Hoelzer, SANS’ IT Audit Curriculum Chair, will cover fundamentals that will get you up and running with automated security compliance.  You will learn how to scale important tests out to thousands of systems in an effective way and how to produce useful reports.  Additionally, David will provide tips on how to automatically generate useful alerts from the data collection processes that are covered.

The course will be on Tuesday, March 16th 2010 from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT.

David Hoelzer will also be teaching Audit 507: Auditing Networks, Perimeters, and Systems, a 36-hr course, on vLive! beginning March 29.  https://www.sans.org/vlive/details.php?nid=20748
