OBJECTIVES

In this course, you will learn how to enhance the security of the IT infrastructure that you administer. This course begins by emphasizing the importance of assuming that network breaches have occurred already and then teaches you how to protect administrative credentials and rights to ensure that administrators can perform the precise tasks they need at any time, when they need to.

You will learn how to mitigate malware threats, identify security issues by using auditing and the Advanced Threat Analysis feature in Windows Server 2016, secure your virtualization platform, and use new deployment options (such as Nano server and containers) to enhance security.

This course incorporates material from the Official Microsoft Learning Product 20744, and it can assist you in your preparation for Exam 70-744: Securing Windows Server 2016.
