Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Mark Ingram. Welcome to my course, Securing Windows 10: Data at Rest, in Use, and in Transit. I am an online and offline trainer and consultant, working with a large variety of Microsoft server and client technologies. In this course, we're going to look at various ways that data can leak, regardless of whether it's on a server, you're actively using it, or it's being transmitted. Knowing what tools are available and how to use them can help mitigate any security risks to save you a lot of hardship in the long run. That being said, before beginning this course, you should be familiar with how to grant access to resources using NT of S and share permissions. Some of the major topics we'll cover include new BitLocker protection features, how UEFI, the modern replacement for BIOS, enables new hardware-based protection methods such as secure boot and device guard, how Enterprise Data Protection prevents confidential information from leaving your organization, accidentally or otherwise, and a couple of Enterprise technologies from the Windows 10 client perspective that give you greater control over who can do what, namely active directory rights management services and dynamic access control. By the end of this course, you'll know how to protect data drives using Windows 10, how to protect your drives from malicious code installing before startup and from various other attacks, and how to protect data from inadvertently leaving your organization. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn a huge variety of software and hardware security features available to you using Windows 10 with the Securing Windows 10: Data at Rest, in Use, and in Transit course at Pluralsight.
