Session Title:

Jea – A PowerShell toolkit to secure a post-Snowden world

Session Abstract:

When asked what to do about corporate hacking, Ex NSA Director Michael Hayden replied, “Man up and defend yourselves”.   Within a few years, Edward Snowden rocked the world by disclosing information he had gathered using his NSA administrative privileges.  Jea stands for Just Enough Admin.  It is a PowerShell DSC toolkit that you can use to “man up and defend yourselves” by allowing admins to perform functions without giving them admin privileges across a large set of systems.
