So, you think about operational effectiveness and security all the time?  You go home at night wishing you could push a magic button and have your infrastructure instantly automated and secure?  I would bet you’re so bogged down in your daily activities that you don’t have a lot of time to invest in learning how to really deliver when it comes to a higher quality of service, email availability, and a more secure Windows environment.

Never fear!  The TechNet webcast team has put together a very thorough webcast series that will help guide you through step by step instructions on how to install, configure, automate and mange a more secure and well managed infrastructure.  This webcast series spans October, November and December, and will cover:

  • Active Directory installation and monitoring
  • Step-by-step patch management implementation
  • Server, application, and desktop monitoring
  • PKI Infrastructures
  • Security concepts and principals
  • Utilization and configuration of Group Policy, SMS, MOM, ISA and Exchange


 And, on top of learning lots of new concepts, principals and best practices, the team has put together a pretty cool SWAG line-up to help get you in the mood to learn.  Attend four of the five October webcasts in this series (live or on demand) by October 31, 2005 and you will receive a Microsoft “geek” t-shirt.  See the landing page for all the details, but believe me, you will look good in this t-shirt. 

Microsoft Geek Shirt.

We have different prizes lined up for November and December, but you’ll have to tune in to learn what those will be.  Take that as a hint not to miss out on this series that will provide a clear road map to a more secure and well-managed infrastructure!

Cheers,
