Hi,

 

I'm looking into securing an environment and found this blog post about windows hardening and security levels;

https://www.microsoft.com/security/blog/2019/04/11/introducing-the-security-configuration-framework-...

 

The security levels mentioned in this post refer to the following which is based on DEFCON levels.

How-ever when I click on the following link at the end of the blog post it takes me to github and it seems to have the levels around the wrong way;

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/windows-security-configuration-f...

I'm presuming that since it's based on DEFCON levels that the first one is correct?  i.e SECCON level 1 is for Admin Workstations.
