Lessons

Discover how you can enhance your network's security.

In this course, you will learn how to enhance the security of the IT infrastructure that you administer. This course begins by emphasizing the importance of assuming that network breaches have occurred already, and then teaches you how to protect administrative credentials and rights to ensure that administrators can perform the precise tasks they need at any time.

Additionally, you will learn how to mitigate malware threats, identify security issues by using auditing and the Advanced Threat Analysis feature in Windows Server 2016, secure your virtualization platform, and use new deployment options (such as Nano server and containers) to enhance security. You will also learn how to help protect access to files by using encryption and dynamic access control.

What You'll Learn
• Secure application development and a server workload infrastructure
• Manage security baselines
• Configure and manage just enough and just-in-time (JIT) administration
• Manage data security
• Configure Windows Firewall and a software-defined distributed firewall
• Secure network traffic
• Secure your virtualization infrastructure
• Manage malware and threats
• Configure advanced auditing
• Manage software updates
• Manage threats by using Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) and Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS)

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
