2802: Microsoft Security Guidance Training II (1 Day)
About This Clinic
This one-day instructor-led clinic builds on existing knowledge of server and client security and provides students with the knowledge and skills to apply best practices to implement perimeter and network defenses and enhance security for applications and Microsoft Windows Server SystemT components. It also provides students with prescriptive guidance to enhance security for Microsoft Windows Server and client computers and practical strategies for implementing security best practices across an environment.
Attendees will be current IT professionals with experience using Microsoft Windows 2000 Server or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and with knowledge of Active Directory concepts. Students will also benefit from experience with Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server , and Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004. The students will be in an environment where they are responsible for aspects of security management and deployment associated with their internal network infrastructure and Internet or intranet services.
