5 Strategies for Blocking Cyberthreats in Windows


Register for our webinar on April 12th to discover how to establish hardened configurations for your Windows servers and endpoints, and how to monitor file activity to spot potential attacks in progress.

Dirk Schrader, VP of Security Research at Netwrix, will cover:

  1. Using best-practice benchmarks to establish hardened configurations across your IT estate.
  2. Tuning baselines to fit your needs and risk tolerance.
  3. Monitoring file activity while avoiding alert fatigue.
  4. Promptly remediating configuration drift.
  5. And how to maintain and prove regulatory compliance.

Most compliance regulations and security frameworks recommend implementing system hardening and FIM whenever possible. So, this webinar is essential for organizations that need to be compliant or want to avoid security breaches and disruptions to business processes.

System hardening and FIM

System hardening involves changing the out-of-box configuration of Windows and Windows Server to a more secure default that helps protect against common threats. You should establish secure baselines that provide additional protection but also don’t break important functionality.

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) checks operating system and application files to ensure they haven’t been modified or are corrupted. Comparing files to a known and trusted baseline allows IT to establish whether changes might indicate a problem or malicious activity.

FIM is an important component of Windows change auditing and it is required to meet some compliance mandates. In the webinar, you will learn how FIM can help with system hardening, and block and detect malware and other cyberthreats that might endanger your environment.
