Security breaches are becoming more common. You need to make sure your SharePoint Environment is not at risk. This course will take you through the steps, the configuration, and the process of building a secure SharePoint environment.
SharePoint has been around for quite a few years and yet still every environment that is built is different. Sometimes firewalls are used, sometimes not. Group Policy and and other rules are implemented to help try and mitigate a perceived threat. In reality, a lot of the security issues seen with SharePoint comes back to initial deployment and configuration issues. Knowing how to secure SharePoint, from the base operating systems, to the end user access is something that cannot be ignored or forgotten. In this course, SharePoint Security End to End, you'll learn how to best protect your SharePoint environment from possible security threats. First, you'll learn about preparing Windows Server for a secure SharePoint installation. Next, you'll learn all about creating and applying application level policies. Finally, you'll wrap up the course learning how to enable hybrid services and features for SharePoint. By the end of this course, you'll feel confident in setting up a better, more secure, SharePoint enviornment.
Course Overview Hi everyone! My name is Liam Cleary, and welcome to my course, SharePoint Security End to End. I am an associate director and architect at Protiviti, as well as a ten-year Microsoft MVP. SharePoint is now one of the most used collaboration and sharing platforms in the world. However, many implementations have not been designed or built with security in mind. In fact, security is often the last thing that is thought of and then retrofitted to SharePoint, often not in the best way. In this course, we're going to walk through setting up a secure SharePoint environment from securing the Windows Servers to controlling applications that run to the accounts needed with their permissions, and then, finally, protecting at the edge. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to secure Windows Server, group and local security policy, creation, and assignment, creating and assigning App Locker policies, authentication and authorization for SharePoint, federated authentication using Active Directory federated services, and protecting at the edge. By the end of the course, you will know how to set up a secure SharePoint environment with better controls and their better implementation. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to build a secure SharePoint environment with the SharePoint Security End to End course at Pluralsight.
