Your computer has a number of different security settings that you can use to secure your computer. For example, using the local security settings, you can configure a password policy so that all users who access your computer must change their password every 30 days.

There are a few ways in which you can access the security settings. One method is to open the Control Panel, select System and Maintenance, select Administrative Tools and click the Local Security Policy. Alternatively, you can also use the Group Policy Editor by typing gpedit.msc in the search field on the Start Menu. This opens the Group Policy console from which you can navigate to the security settings.
