Seminar – Introduction to Auditing with PowerShell® Part 2: Working with Data and Scripting
April 28th @ 9:30 am – 5:00 pm EST ● 7 CPE GWDC Member $125, Non-GWDC Member $200
This one-day virtual seminar is designed for students to expand their skills in using PowerShell® to perform audits. This course explores two fundamental aspects of using PowerShell: objects and scripting. PowerShell is built around the concept that data in PowerShell is an object of a specific type. An object can be as simple as text or number or as complex as a collection of objects. Auditors need to understand this concept to unlock the information stored in different object types and the actions that can be taken. PowerShell is also more than a series of commands; it is a scripting language complete with its own version or popular scripting features and syntax. While built for systems administrators, auditors can also use key aspects of PowerShell’s scripting language to write effective and repeatable scripts for use in their audits. [View Seminar details]
