Change the Administrator password so that it is C-2 compliant (min of 8 char, mix of 3 of the 4 characters sets: upper case letters, lowers case letters, numbers, and symbols)
Require all users to change their passwords so that they too are C-2. Run syskey.exe (located in system32 folder) to encrypt the SAM database.
Ensure that only necessary individuals have Administor or Domain Admins rights.
