Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Scott Lee, and welcome to my course, Salesforce Sharing and Security Fundamentals.. I am the founder and director of Elega Corporation, hold multiple Salesforce certifications, and have worked with many other technologies outside Salesforce for many years. Salesforce security is foundational to enterprise or organization success in the modern world, is at the core of Salesforce certification exams, and is key to a well‑functioning system anywhere. In this course, we're going to cover every major layer of the Salesforce Lightning Platform security model, including user and user security controls, profiles and permissions, writing less vulnerable code, and how to avoid common design mistakes. By the end of this course, you'll know the essentials of security and record sharing on the Salesforce platform with the ability to begin making a meaningful audit and improvements to your Salesforce org immediately. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with navigating the Salesforce user interface, working with custom objects and records, and knowing how to configure a free developer org. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Salesforce deeper with courses on Shield Encryption, OAuth flows, Salesforce security architecture, and much more. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn security and sharing with the Salesforce Sharing and Security Fundamentals course, at Pluralsight.
