Security Baseline for Windows Server 2008 R2
If you followed my talk at Community Day 2010 ("The ABC of SharePoint Security"), you will remember that one of the elements I mentioned for securing your SharePoint server was the implementation of the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager Toolkit (SCM). You'll find more information about the SCM here. Of course, when you are working with the latest and greatest (Server 2008 R2, SharePoint 2010), some crucial elements are still missing. Microsoft is now filling in one of the gaps by releasing a beta of the Security Baseline for Windows Server 2008 R2, which is now available via Microsoft's connect web-site. If you are not yet a member of the relevant beta program, you can simply sign up here.
