Greg to Speak in NYC on Managing Administrator Rights for PC Lockdown – Free Event!

A little aside today from the usual virtualization-focused content, but a topic that’s no less important!

In just a few short weeks, I will be speaking at a free half-day workshop in New York. Join me, a few other experts, and the sponsor of the event – Viewfinity – to explore some real-world lessons in implementing PC control policies.

You already know that handing out Administrator rights simply isn’t a good idea. With widespread Administrator rights, IT no longer really controls their computers any more.  During this half-day event I’ll help you understand why focusing on “The Administrator” just isn’t enough anymore. Among other things, you’ll learn:

  • …that distributing the right permissions to the right people goes so much further than simply eliminating administrator rights.  Applications require them.  Some users need them.  Administrator alone isn’t granular enough.
  • …that smart businesses are replacing IT’s traditional focus on people alone.  That new focus secures desktops based on who the person is, what they need to do, and when they need to do it.
  • …that smart tactics exist to implement Least Privilege, finally solving the problem of effective PC lockdown.

If you are interested in joining me in New York on September 15th for a morning workshop, please feel free to reserve your seat here:
