Removing User Admin Rights Mitigates 94% of All Critical Microsoft Vulnerabilities.

Have you ever seen anything else than just recommendations and guidelines about how to implement a least privilege strategy?
Have you been able to locate any detailed starting guide about this topic?

I propose a basic detailed least privilege implementation example in a chapter of the PowerShell Conference Book

Are you looking for more good reasons to buy this book?

I’d like to personally thank Mike F Robbins, Michael T. Lombardi and Jeff Hicks.
