Security experts remain locked into researching the Stuxnet worm. They learned how it can infiltrate a system, but now experts are learning more about mitigation strategies that can keep the nasty worm out.

Joel Langill, a security consultant and host of a website at SCADAhacker.com devoted to control system security shows in Part II of a video series on the Stuxnet worm one strategy that can help mitigate attacks like Stuxnet from infiltrating your system.

This demo focuses on the Software Restriction Policy (SRP) within the Windows operating environment.
