Windows 10 SCM beta is now live!


Hello,

We have just completed the release process for the Security Compliance Manager (SCM) Beta security baseline for Windows 10 and the baseline is now ready for download!

This is a public beta and anyone with a Microsoft account can download this baseline and give us feedback. 

Anyone who wishes to download the beta should visit the beta registration page and sign in with your Microsoft account.  Once you are registered for the program, and you have completed our mandatory survey, you should then have access to download the Baseline CAB as well as the Attachment CAB (both files are important).  Once you have these CABs you can then open up the SCM tool, and select the import option and import those CAB files into the tool:


If you have questions, comments or feedback regarding this release, please e-mail secwish@microsoft.com or submit your feedback on our Connect page here.

Also note, in the release notes there are a couple of important items that I want to highlight here.

  • The “Audit PNP Activity” Advanced Auditing policy is not included in this baseline. The Microsoft prescribed value for this policy is “Success”. Manually add this policy with the prescribed value to your Group Policy Objects based on the Microsoft Windows 10 Security Compliance Baseline.   

  • The “Audit Group Membership” Advanced Auditing policy is not included in this baseline. The Microsoft prescribed value for this policy is “Success”. Manually add this policy with the prescribed value to your Group Policy Objects based on the Microsoft Windows 10 Security Compliance Baseline.  

Thanks,

Pat
