Dangerous DIY and Group Policy


A domain level stand-alone GPO to run a script that does not exist.

A huge set of software restrictions in the default domain GPO with an Everybody scope.

A little bit of reading and a lot of formal training, or a lot of reading with a little formal training tied into running a lab to experiment and learn goes a long way to doing things right the first time.

There is no replacement for experience and mentorship!

Best Practices Analyzers! There is a very good reason or them.

With our client's businesses literally in our hands, we cannot afford to take our responsibility lightly.

We can never ever sit back on our laurels and say we know enough. The moment we do that, we and our clients are potentially toast.

Ugh! What a mess.
