Operating Systems Security

About the course

Protecting the IT resources of a company against security threats is of vital importance. The Operating System Security is an ideal course for anyone charged with securing Operating systems. From securing a desktop, to the high availability options available on the platform, to directory services options, this course is going to be a swift overview of Windows 2008, Linux and Sun Solaris.

The Windows Security course includes everything important you need to know to secure your systems running Microsoft Windows. This training will show you how each Windows security technology works, how to access vulnerabilities and secure your information. You will master every aspect of Windows & Active Directory security and learn how to leverage the vast amount of security functionality. We will provide you with all of the Windows security techniques and strategies you would need in order to solve real problems by identifying risks inherent in Microsoft's design.

Why should you attend this course?

Throughout this course we will focus on reviewing existing exploits and the basic concepts and challenges of securing the Operating Systems. We then move on to the standard security measures that should always be employed, and the usability implications of each.

Who should attend this course?

If you're a newcomer to the field of information security but a long time user of these Operating Systems or a newcomer to these Operating Systems but a long time information security expert, this is the course for you. You will develop skills that will help you to bridge the gap between the Operating Systems administrators and the security administrators in most organizations; and you will learn the ins and outs of keeping your data private.
