MSFT 1570 - Secure User Endpoint and Server Systems
This course introduces students to the process of designing safeguards for secure server based platforms and endpoint devices. Students learn how to assemble the design team, assess and quantify risks, and recommend countermeasures and remedial activities for securing server based and endpoint technology in a networked environment. Student develop their analytical skills, their ability to define a problem, and develop a plan of action. The course gives students the foundational knowledge needed to prepare for the Microsoft 98-367 exam - Security Fundamentals.
Successful completion of MSFT 2605 Windows Client Operating System, MSFT 1520 Windows Server Networking, and COSC 2020 Linux Fundamentals or CSEC 1500 Computer Network Security +, or instructor consent.
