Course Description

As technology evolves from the PC age to the device age, management changes may be required. In this 10-video course, learners discover how to augment policy-based management of Group Policy with Mobile Device Management (MDM) and local policies, as many Group Policy Object (GPO) settings are not available on all devices. Key concepts covered here include how to configure the local registry, a collection of keys and settings that inform and control operating system environment and applications; implementing local policies; and troubleshooting group policies on devices. Next, learn how to configure user account control; configure Windows Defender Firewall and advanced Windows Defender Firewall rules; configure Group Policy and Mobile Device Management settings for Edge; and leverage Microsoft Intune to secure the modern workplace with MDM security baselines. The course concludes with an exercise on firewall rules, including reasons for choosing policy-based administrative methods; methods for configuring UAC in Windows 10; principal criteria of firewall rules; and the path to the MDM security baseline and the configuration required. This is one course in a series to help learners prepare for the MD-100: Windows 10 certification exam.
