Understand the nuances of applying permissions in order to protect data. Use various methods to encrypt files and devices, keeping user data secure even if the device is lost or stolen. In this course, we explore data protection methods for local and enterprise systems. We examine in-depth the effects of layering NTFS permissions. We learn how to use EFS, BitLocker, and MBAM to encrypt files and devices. We will also be introduced to the new Enterprise Data Protection which provides secure containers for mobile devices and BYOD scenarios. This Skillsoft learning path covers the objectives for the Microsoft exam, Building Configuring Windows Devices (beta for Windows 10) (70-697).
