Prepare for Liftoff

Securing Windows Server 2016

Four years after the heavily commended Windows Server 2012 was launched, Microsoft had yet again dominated the Information Technology field by introducing its 2016 version to the market. IT professionals, corporate businesses, and individual users then upgraded to the latest system, with its features made more focused on Systems Center and Azure. With the provision of such, the software company primarily developed a tightly-knit digital space that sees executions and processes from beginning to end without any delay. More so, the integrated function of connecting parallel technologies allowed virtualization, containerization, federated services, and cloud-based services to work collaboratively.

About the Course

Windows Server 2016 is equipped with features for data protection, optimization, and malware negation. BitLocker and EFS, for example, provide strong encryption to safeguard computer data. However, these are not activated unless necessary configurations are done. With that in mind, taking this tutorial may benefit those who want to harden their 2016 server. By signing up for this tutorial, course takers are expected to secure the server tighter than its default settings. In addition to this, it offers comprehensive lectures about server volumes and folder encryption, which will be an advantage to create an optimal workspace. Finally, it contextualizes Credential Guard and Virtualization to negate password thefts.

Who is this course for?

Interested parties who are looking for tighter server encryption may enroll in this course. In particular, Server Administrators are guaranteed to acquire substantial insights relevant to increasing the security of Windows Server 2016.

Course Prerequisites and Skills to be developed

Those who will enroll in this course are required to have an entry-level knowledge about operating systems, more favorably with Windows. Relevant knowledge about network security may also be advantageous. By partaking in this five-part lecture, course takers are expected to demonstrate the following:

  • Proper understanding of the most common computer vulnerabilities
  • Configuration of privileged access management
  • EFS and BitLocker configuration
  • Password Management
  • Dynamic Access Control Deployment
  • Audit Implementation

Overview and Users

The introductory lecture provides a summary of the most common digital attacks, emphasizing their nature and qualities. It then provides a separate discussion about user security, with the end goal of resolving the presented breaches. Lastly, it will take course takers to a more complex discussion of passwords and how to create lasting codes devoid of detection.

Administrative Access

This section focuses on the overall management of Administrative Access. While doing so, it introduces another key feature called Just Enough Administration, which is the latest addition to Microsoft’s security component. Wrapping up the discussion, Device Guard and App Locker are put under thorough understudy.

Auditing and Infrastructure

Necessary security measures are then presented in this section, focusing on auditing and threat analytics. Other related features are also discussed, including security baseline deployment, host guardian service, and nano servers.

Data Protection and File Server Management

Since data protection is at the core of Microsoft 2016, its overall management via file and folder permissions is explored in this tutorial. Relevant topics such as Access Control List and Confidentiality were examined, together with BitLocker and Dynamic Access Control.

Securing Network Infrastructure

Included in the final session is the overall network infrastructure, put in the context of security. Firewalls and other advanced security are discussed, with course takers expected to understand the principle of data center firewall and multi-tenant environments. Lastly, DNS security and other relevant policies are comprehensively presented.
