Level: Introductory Intermediate

Chief Technologist

The first half of this all day workshop focuses on improving security by eliminating those out of sight, out of mind security holes on our servers. Services running under user accounts, scheduled tasks running with credentials where passwords are set to never expire, these are threats to the security of our systems, yet admins use these techniques every day. Stop the insanity! Learn the background and step-by-step techniques for gMSA use in these scenarios. In the afternoon, we'll take security and administration to the next level through the use of Just Enough Administration. Step-by-step, from start to finish, configure, deploy, and use JEA successfully!

You will learn:

  • Setup your environment to use JEA
  • Understand, implement, and manage gMSAs
  • Creating custom PowerShell functions and modules for JEA administration
