MVA Offers Free Win10 Security Course

Every month, like clockwork, I get an email blast named “MCP Monthly” from Microsoft Learning. In fact, anybody who’s ever passed any MCP exam can sign up for and receive this newsletter. This latest issue includes an item entitled “Windows 10 Security in Real Life.” As it happens, this points to an MVA (Microsoft Virtual Academy) course of the same name. The featured instructors are Erdal Ozkaya, MS Cyber Security Architect, and Raymond Comvalius, an independent IT architect. The course includes 6 modules from 8 to 45 minutes or so in length, with total playing time of 2:46, as shown in Table 1. Because MVA offers free Win10 security course to all, it makes sense for interested parties to give it a try.

Sign-up is easy at the Microsoft Virtual Academy. You’ll use your Microsoft Account to login directly to the course at MVA. Then, simply work your way through the six modules in sequence. Along the way, you’ll hear from your friendly and voluble instructors. It’s interesting stuff and worth digging into for those charged with managing and maintaining security for Win10 PCs on organizational networks. You’ll definitely want to check it out.

The content is useful and interest, the topic timely, and the price entirely right. What more could you want?

If you’ve been itching to learn about new MS security technologies such as Windows Hello and Credential guard, you’ll find them covered here. Same goes for data protection using Windows Information Protection (WIP) and Conditional Access. Likewise for Windows Defender’s Advanced Threat Protection. It can help detect, diagnose, investigate and respond to so-called Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). Good stuff, all the way around. Please dig in at your convenience!
