Due to the need to order books from SANS in advance, we are unable to accept any additional registrations for Securing Windows at this time.
In April of 2014, Microsoft will stop releasing any new security patches for Windows XP. Like it or not, migrating off Windows XP is no longer optional, the clock is counting down. The Securing Windows and Resisting Malware course is fully updated for Windows Server 2012, Windows 8, Server 2008-R2, and Windows 7.
This course is about the most important things to do to secure Windows and how to minimize the impact on users of these changes. You'll see the instructor demo the important steps live, and you can follow along on your laptop. The manuals are filled with screenshots and step-by-step exercises, so you can do the steps alongside the instructor in seminar or later on your own time if you prefer.
