Microsoft Security Fundamentals
Microsoft (until recently) offered certification exams in Windows 10, databases, Server 2016, website coding, and more. These exams have since been retired however, the information is still considered essential to your IT career.
Microsoft Security Fundamentals is a video training course teaching you network security fundamentals, from protocols, services, ports, attack types, hacking, prevention, social engineering, and cryptography. Assuming no previous knowledge, we explain all the fundamental network security topics you need to understand if you are to work in IT as a career.
By the end of this course you will be able to explain the most common network security topics in your job interviews or with colleagues if you already work in IT.
Microsoft Security Fundamentals Exam Pass
Ger used our Security Fundamentals training program to pass his exam on the first try. Most students take two or three attempts to pass the exam ($100 per attempt). The exam has now retired.
This Microsoft Security course is perfect for entry-level security careers such as network security helpdesk, cyber operations support, and network forensics. It prepares you for the more advanced exams such as Certified Ethical Hacker, Penetration Tester, Cyber Security Analyst, or Cyber Operations Associate.
Much of the syllabus is also tested in the CompTIA Security+ exam, so it's well worth studying for these exams together.
This course will help you to build an understanding of Security Layers, Operating System Security, Network Security, and Security Software.
