Chapter 26. Using Security-related Policies > Operating System Policies

Operating System Policies

The operating system policies discussed in this chapter do not directly affect macro security in Microsoft Office 2003 Editions, nor do they change the way security is handled by any of the Office applications. However, these policies can help limit the exposure of critical portions of a network, operating system, or user interface to potentially destructive changes by users. Some of these settings can even mitigate the first level of attack by most attackers.

By setting these policies, an administrator can reduce the amount of data that users are exposed to or reduce the number of choices users must make while they interact with the system. As a result, productivity can increase by not having to support some features and by streamlining the user interface of the operating system. The policies in this section are available within the listed templates.
