It is imperative that companies deploy valuable security techniques to combat threats to Windows, the most common network operating system used throughout the world. As a security professional, you will learn from a hacker’s perspective how architectural vulnerabilities are assessed and how to deploy effective countermeasures.

The Ultimate Hacking: Windows Security course from Foundstone utilizes the latest commercial and freeware programs to simulate breaches and responses, allowing you to add these tools and techniques to your network security arsenal.

What You'll Learn

This course will give you the ultimate comparison of classic Windows attacks directed at Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 networks.

Get the answers to these and many other Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 questions in a hands-on environment with the experts from Foundstone.
