Incomplete visibility into privileged accounts and who is doing what across Windows servers is an indication that your organization has some dangerous blind spots. Join Windows Security Expert and MCSE, Russell Smith, who will discuss the Windows Events you should be tracking right now and why. He will also walk you through the setup of Event Log subscriptions so you can improve monitoring of your Windows environments. He will also cover:

  • Windows event categories you need to monitor (account creation, Security services disabled, RDP enabled, etc.)
  • What you can learn from Windows Event Logs, and why they should be monitored
  • How to view Windows Event Logs

Following up on Russell, BeyondTrust’s Jason Silva will demonstrate how to effectively track and pinpoint Windows events with PowerBroker for Windows to improve security and compliance posture.
