I am in training this week. A week full of information regarding Windows security. My favorite hemorrhoid, Windows (XP in specific) is the focus of my attention. I am surprised at how many of the other "admins" came equipped with a MacBook & Parallels.
The SANS Institute is providing the training. I have to say the course is pretty good. Day 1 was basic stuff I already knew regarding Active Directory and DNS. Day 2 covered Windows Group Policy, the "meat and potatoes" of Windows network security, the end of the day started to get into some tools and techniques I had not seen before. Day 3, today, covers PKI and crypto. These topics can get a bit dry, but are very useful for information security.
