As greater emphasis is placed on complying with industry and government regulations, securing data as it passes through personal computer systems is crucial to satisfy auditors and protect systems against data loss and reputational damage.
Organizations can yield quick gains by implementing simple security controls across server and desktop estates. As well as putting your business on the right path to full compliance, total cost of ownership is lowered and end-user productivity improved.
This paper discusses the concept of layered security for desktop computers; why it’s needed to meet compliance requirements set out by regulatory bodies and how to overcome implementation challenges to ensure project success.
The best practices outlined in this paper can be used as the foundation for creating baseline security configurations that will be effective at protecting your environment as well as helping you meet these compliance regulations.
