Key concepts covered in this course include how to identify, assess, and prioritize risks; how to implement security controls to mitigate risk; and learning about account management actions that secure the environment. Next, learn how to use Group Policy to implement user account hardening and configure the appropriate password security settings for those accounts in accordance with organizational security policies; learn how HTTP session management can affect security; and observe how to harden web browsers and servers to use TLS (transport layer security). Then learn how centralized mobile device control can secure the environment; learn encryption techniques used to protect data; and observe how to configure a virtual private network (VPN) to protect data in motion. Finally, learn how to configure and implement file encryption to protect data at rest; and how to configure encryption and session management settings.
