Hardening refers to attack surface reduction in IT environments and can be applied to any type of device or software environment, including storage area networks (SANs). Firmware and software patches should be applied to ensure that potential security flaws in code have been addressed. In this course, you will begin by discovering hardening techniques for a variety of IT environments. Then you will find out how to use Microsoft Intune to centrally manage mobile devices. You will explore the importance of applying hardware and software patches and patch AWS virtual machines. Next, you will install and configure a Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server and harden Windows computers using Group Policy. You will investigate SANs and related security considerations and you will manage virtual machines through Microsoft Azure Bastion. Finally, you will harden a Wi-Fi router and printer, enable Microsoft Azure VNet peering, and configure Azure private endpoints. This course can be used to prepare for the ISACA(r) Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC(r)) certification.
