"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is this for DCs, member servers, PCs or users?

Best practise depends on what you want to achieve. It differs for each organisation.

I'm setting up a new domain and I want to use the best security practice possible so this will apply to all default policies.
This is just a basic setup in a office so I've assigned all recommended policies which would have been designed for srv 2003 or 2008
Is there anything specific in 2016 by which the security can be enhanced ?
Peter HutchisonSenior Network Systems SpecialistCommented:
I suggest setting user password and lockout policies in the Default Domain Policy, ideally a longish password length and complexity enbabled.

For PC and Server access, I suggest using Restricted Groups to restrict administrator access to them to specific user groups besides Domain Admins.

Password best practise
