Local Security Policy

Local Security Policy

The next administrative tool we explore is called Local Security Policy tool.  The LSP is found in various levels and editions throughout the Windows family of older to current operating systems, based upon the purpose of the OS relative to its use.

This lesson explores where the LSP feature is deployed and how it is configured relative to that deployment.  For example, there was no need for a local security policy in the XP and other home versions, so those versions do not contain it.  Yet for Windows 7 versions used in the workplace, it’s found in the Enterprise and Business editions.

You’ll learn what a LSPs function is, what it does, and the way in which it enables security at the client-side computing level.  You’ll learn details about policy account development for password management, lockout management, how these policies secure against attacks and about various other local policies such as audit policies for tracking user and network access activities that are combined to formulate a security policy standard that is applied to each user account.

Once completed, you’ll be able to configure local security policies then apply them as rights and privileges when creating user and group accounts on the network and for accessing shared resources between computing systems.
