hello and welcome to P C Security Intermediate Course.
video, I will be talking about limiting uses rights. So I will emphasize on the fact that there are benefits of removing admin brights to users
and just to look at what? What is the situation now, please? To my experience,
most of the companies all users, have admin brights on their accounts. From my experience, the financial institutions, mostly banks on the insurance companies and also medical Medicare businesses
that they have a tendency to limit
privileges of off every user toe, something that is below Administrator. However, in most of other companies, including I t companies in which I was in contact with their users simply have the admin rights and there PC. So
not just then they can run anything from their PC, but also any malbert that starts and then PC has a privilege to do whatever
and this is really bad thing. So what are the benefits off? Ah, limiting
you mean the privileges of off regular user billow admin privileges
Well, 85% off vulnerabilities on Windows systems simply could have in the morning by removing the admin rights to users. And this focuses not just to the fact that we we want to protect programs inside the PC. It's it's any kind of Muller has a difficulty
running things there they they're supposed to do
if they are run with non admin privileges. So if something's, they simply cannot change or something like that.
removing I mean rights can stop. The spread of wire sees through programs
on and some not all member that is delivered by a fishing and muller for militia sites can also be stopped in this way because they simply cannot perform their function because things they want to start bones the allowed by windows.
Okay, there is Mother smiled, malware that can bypass these things.
But so, Aziz, you remember there is no 100% guaranteed protection. But this is really good thing that can stop many, many things.
There is nothing much more to say about this.
This leads to a concept that is called this privilege approach, which is also very important and very modern today in the world of cyber security.
But I have been talking about this saying in my other course, intermediate pieces endpoint security
and if you want to look into this matter a little bit more that you should take a look at this Course also, um, the whole
concept off least privilege deserves its own, uh,
attention. So, uh, it's not everything is even in the end point security intermediate course.
that the whole topic is very, very deep and requires a specials approach.
Okay, So in this video, you have learned about benefits of removing gunman rights to users, and in
next the lesson, I will be talking about protecting browsing, which is also very important thing.
