Security baselines

Security baselines



  • Started developing security guides in 2002 (Windows 2000 Security Guide)

    • The goal was to:

      • Help reduce support costs due to …unsupportable configurations

      • Reduce the conflicting security guidance available to our customers, drove the creation of the SCRB (Security Content Review Board) today resides in the TwC team

      • Bring together multiple government agencies to collaborate and produce a unified guide
