Security for Microsoft Windows System Administrators

Book Description

Security is a growing duty of the everyday system administrator. While there are certifications and specialized (expensive) training classes, there is not a go-to-off-the-shelf resource to tackle these obstacles. With a large and growing number of system administrators worldwide, security is quickly becoming one of the weakest areas in their skill set, but one of the most necessary. This book helps bridge the gap for this occupation.



  • Take all the confusion out of security including: network attacks, system failures, social networking, and even audits
  • Learn how to apply and implement general security concepts
  • Identify and solve situations within your network and organization
