recently i spoke at a conference about a network upgrade i did at a previous job.

the upgrade was a very difficult, but rewarding process, and has become one of my favorite topics to speak about.

topics i covered included the basics/easy stuff:

  • egress firewall rules
  • patching (system & OS)
  • running with user rights
  • software restriction policies/GPO’s
