|Securing Windows 7
THIS COURSE IS CLOSED
Windows 7 is here, and with it comes a truly different approach to security on Microsoft's part. Not only does Windows 7 avoid the user interface and performance problems that plagued Vista, but Windows 7 is based on a much improved security model that is different from any previous Windows operating system. Windows 7 also offers a number of very significant new security features designed to raise security in this operating system to a level that is not possible in previous Windows operating systems. Additionally, Windows 7 offers over 300 diagnostic tools, many of which are extremely useful for security-related purposes. Furthermore, Windows 7 has numerous security settings that enable it to meet compliance regulations, including US Government regulations. At the same time, however, several critical and currently unpatched vulnerabilities for which no patches are available have already been discovered in this operating system, and although Windows 7 is fairly secure out-of-the-box, it is not sufficiently secure for environments requiring high levels of security. Like any operating system, Windows 7 needs configuration changes and other measures to reach its full security potential. This course explains in detail what must be done to make this new operating system truly secure.
