Description

Total workstation lockdown isn't for every machine in your organization, but some machines require it. It's usually those "public walk up" machines that we need to manage a little bit differently; the machines that are in the cafeterias, the lobby and the library. The more we think about it, these kinds of machines are everywhere in our organization - inviting attack and ruining our day. Who knows what crazy things people are doing ON these machines - visiting strange web sites and installing evil software. The good news is that Microsoft has a slew of solutions to help you with this very specific problem. And it doesn't mean you need to turn the thumbscrews and go from 0 - 100% lockdown either. Microsoft has a variety of technologies you can choose (and mix and match) to make sure your workstations as locked down only as much as they need to be. In this session, Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz will demonstrate a myriad of ways to make your public desktops more secure. You will also learn about some non-Microsoft tools to help enhance your control of this notoriously difficult situation.
