The intent of this paper is to provide a discussion on what compliance means as it relates to desired configuration, why it is important to organizations to ensure systems on the enterprise / corporate networks are compliant, and provide information on how an organization can look to ensure desired configuration compliance is being obtained. It is meant to be informational as well as educational for awareness purposes. I will be looking to explain how desired configuration for compliance is accomplished as well as provide information / screenshots on the use of the Compliance Settings component available in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. The paper will also provide information on how compliance standards requirements among various Industries can be accomplished through the use of System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

This procedure configures the default client settings for compliance settings and applies to all computers in your hierarchy.. if you want these settings to apply to only some computers, create a custom device client setting and assign it to a collection that contains the computers for which you want to use compliance settings.
