Understanding perfectly internal operating system protection mechanisms and knowing how operating systems services or server roles work allows having huge impact on the security level of the whole infrastructure. But the problem is that… rarely anybody has this impact!
Advanced access rights, password mechanisms, windows internals, PowerShell usage for security purposes, gaining unauthorized access, advanced DNS configuration and common configuration mistakes, Active Directory security, IIS Security, debugging, advanced monitoring and troubleshooting and much more! Topics covered during this training will help you to feel for the hackers' role and evaluate your infrastructure from their point of view.
