Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Glenn Weadock, and my coauthor, Mark Wilkins, and I welcome you to our course, Configuring Windows 10 Devices: Configure Data Access and Protection. I'm a consultant and seminar leader at Independent Software Inc. in Colorado and an author of over a dozen books on Windows Networking and Certification. Mark is also a consultant and IT educator who's also an author of books on Windows and Active Directory. This course deals with making sure the right people can get to data in a Windows 10 Enterprise environment. Whether you need to provide and protect access to shared folders, libraries, or printers, this course shows you how to turn that access on but keep it under control. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include sharing files with groups of users, setting up a HomeGroup for casual sharing, managing libraries for convenient data access, enforcing disk quotas, and auditing who accesses what data and when. By the end of this course, you'll know how to share files so that users without access can't even see the shares, how to use command line tools for file sharing, how to create and join a homegroup, ways to control libraries with group policy, how to password protect domain and local printers, how to activate auditing of object access, and the difference between NTFS and FSRM quotas on disk volumes. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Windows fundamentals, but no advanced knowledge is required. I hope you'll join us on this journey to learn how to set up and secure data in a Windows network with the Configure Data Access and Protection course, at Pluralsight.
