TechMentor 2-Day Training Seminar:
Implementing Least Privilege and Allow-Listing in the Real World
March 4-5, 2021
9:00AM – 5:00PM Central
Level: Intermediate

"In 2020-21, the most important security measure in enterprises is Allow-Listing (formerly Whitelisting)" says Gartner and multiple other agencies. In Windows, this means you need to implement AppLocker. Join this two-day training seminar where one of the leading experts in Windows OS and Security, Sami Laiho, shows you how to effectively and securely deploy AppLocker in your environment. Sami has deployed AppLocker for tens of companies ranging from one-man operations to 500,000 seat companies. If you think deploying AppLocker will need new hires, you have it all wrong – it will make you work less!

All this can only work if you have already deployed the MOST important security principle in your network – Principle of Least Privilege. By removing end-user admin rights, you can block most vulnerabilities without patching, reduce helpdesk tickets by 75%, keep Windows running without reinstallations for 5 times longer, and even better - have happier users using Windows computers that work better, faster, and longer! This can be done without hindering usability, and can be done for developers, DevOps, and IT-Admins as well. Sami has taken away admin rights from hundreds of companies and is the world leading specialist in this area.

Sami has deployed Allow-Listing solutions since 2001, and Principle of Least Privilege security since 2002, so there is no one more qualified to show you how to really get it working while keeping the management easy!

This workshop is for every level of Windows admins and project leads that are interested in this area.

You will learn:

  • How to get rid of admin rights without losing usability
  • How to deploy Allow-Listing in an easy to manage way
  • How to deploy the two most important security features of Windows
  • How to save in costs of management and security
