Description

Security-conscious organizations often lock down their systems based on prescriptive guidance from Microsoft,US Federal government agencies or other security organizations. Sometimes these settings can lead to unpleasant surprises and unexpected side effects. This session describes and demonstrates some of the common issues that can arise,and whether and how those settings actually help or hurt. Is there benefit to not granting Administrators the “Debug” privilege? Does “Hide mechanisms to remove zone information” break anything? Is the “Require trusted path for credential entry” setting worth the inconvenience? Come see!
