You will learn about repeating tasks, enumerating through a list of objects, and the various things you can do with PowerShell objects. You will learn new cmdlets, modules, and functions. You will gain experience by practicing what the instructor is teaching and demos production scripts and tools. The target audience is individuals new to scripting and new to PowerShell.

Defensive PowerShell (June 18th)

This workshop touches on the difference between PowerShell versions. It will detail how to use PowerShell to secure the systems, PowerShell remoting, and set up auditing. During this section, the specific modules discussed are PowerShell DSC (Desired State Configuration) and PowerShell JEA (Just Enough Admin). We will use PowerShell remoting to query system logs, query the registry, search for unwanted executables, and determine the type of file and if it is executable. The rest of the day, we will use PowerShell to investigate a system and hunt for evil.

Requirements

Participants must bring their own system (laptop) on which PowerShell 5.1 or above has been installed. (Note: 5.1 comes standard on Windows 10 or above.) It is helpful if the participant has escalated (Power User/Administrator) rights on the system.
