PowerShell Training

The Securing Windows and PowerShell Automation course at the SANS Institute is a six-day course on Windows security with an emphasis on PowerShell. Learning Windows security and PowerShell at the same time is more effective (and fun) than learning either by itself.


"Hello, I'm the author and instructor of the Securing Windows and PowerShell Automation course at the SANS Institute (course SEC505). The six-day
Securing Windows course includes a full day just on PowerShell followed by many PowerShell examples for security during the week.

Learning PowerShell and understanding how to implement Windows security are two of the best things you can do to enhance your IT career. These skills are in demand.

Even if you do not attend the course, you are welcome to download the PowerShell scripts we use in seminar."
