Have you had a chance to explore the new and enhanced security functionalities in Windows Server 2016? In this new course authored by Orin Thomas - who literally wrote the book on Windows Server! - you'll get a guided tour and learn to better safeguard against security breaches.
Windows Server 2016 provides layers of protection that help address both known and emerging threats. You'll learn how it actively contributes to securing your infrastructure. See how protections were built to mitigate an array of attack vectors and to deal with the overall threat of ongoing attacks inside the datacenter.
You'll begin with a look at the hardening of Windows Server 2016, including hardware requirements for Secure Boot and guidance on disabling system services. Explore ways to configure network security, including firewalls, and look at secure virtualization, like encryption-supported virtual machines. From there, you'll dive into secure virtualization, threat detection, privileged identity, Desired State Configuration, and more. See demos, participate in hands-on labs, and pass the final exam, as you shore up your skills for ongoing security management.
Note: These courses will retire in June. Please enroll only if you are able to finish your coursework in time.
