Securing a WorkStation Best Practices

Part 1

For today’s lesson, we’re going to examine some of the best practices for securing a work station and define what each of them means in practical execution.

For example, it’s not enough to say set a strong password.  They must be a set of standards and rules in place that factor in what types of passwords are most secure and effective, as well as set time limits on them, in determining the type of characters to allow, and for establishing reuse and reset guidelines.  Upon completion of this lesson, you’ll be well versed on the how best to establish solid standards and guidelines that will prevent guessing, minimize the effectiveness of hacking efforts such as the use of brute force software/algorithms and other hacking strategies.
