Part II: Prepare for the Exam > Configuring, Managing, and Troubleshooting Secu...

Chapter 27. Configuring, Managing, and Troubleshooting Security

Computers are constantly under attack. Although Microsoft Windows XP (especially with Service Pack 2 installed) is designed to protect against most attacks, the default configuration might not meet your organization’s security needs. Depending on how users make use of their computers and the confidentiality of the data on your computers, you might need to adjust the default security settings.

You will start by configuring Users and Groups for the people who will need to access resources on each Windows XP computer. Then, you can use tools such as the Computer Management console and the Local Security Policy console to grant rights to those users. Users who do not have accounts will have a very difficult time gaining access to resources on your computer, which will protect you against most attacks.
