Explore asset and change management, and their relationship to security through discussion and demonstration, in this 14-video course, which examines classes of assets, including personnel, hardware, software, data, and trade secrets. Prepare for the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification exam by learning how to inventory hardware assets; how hardware is configured; and learning about network entry points such as VPN concentrators, wireless access points, and ethernet switches. This course examines software assets, including off-the-shelf and customized software. Learners observe how to configure a hardware inventory using Microsoft SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager). You will learn about data classification, and techniques to help facilitate security on a larger scale. Next, learn how file classification works by using the Windows Server Operating System and the File Server Resource Manager role service. You will examine TPM (Trusted Platform Module), firmware that is embedded in a chip, and which can be used with MFA (multifactor authentication). You will explore MDM (mobile device management). Finally, this course demonstrates a structured approach to change management and adoption.
