WEBVTT Thank you so much for choosing to watch this course with me, your host, Lauren Deal. I'll be your learner advocate as we go along, but I know that you're here to see subject matter expert Wes Bryan. So welcome to the show. How are you doing today? I'm doing good, thank you. Yeah, my name's Wes Bryan. I'll be your subject matter expert for this course and the series of episodes that we have here. I am a technical instructor. I've been a technical instructor for the better part of a decade. Again, rapidly approaching 15 years. I hold a variety of industry certifications. Some from CompTIA, some from Microsoft, some from the LPI Institute. So I'm very familiar with what it takes to get people trained up, make them successful, as well as on the exam side, what it's like to actually sit the exam booth and go through all of the things that we do when it comes to taking exams. So I'll be your subject matter expert as we work through this course and I'm looking forward to talking some topics on Windows clients. Well, with a subject matter expert with this amount of knowledge and history, you know that you're in good hands. In fact, this course is going to be covering quite a variety of topics. So Wes, what are we gonna be talking about? All right, so our primary goal here for this course is going to be managing access to the Windows clients, but we're gonna do that. We're gonna break it up into three different sections of content. We're gonna first talk about how you can manage users, groups, and computers inside of Windows, including things like profiles and credentials. Password management, we'll talk about a variety of those things and more in that section. We're also gonna talk about how we can configure and manage local and group policy. Centralized configuration management system that's traditionally known in Active Directory, Windows domain environments, but we can also do this locally. So we'll show you how to set that up as well as to do some troubleshooting on it. Then we're gonna look at managing overall Windows client security, including things like how we do full drive encryption through BitLocker, how we manage our firewalls through network protection. We'll also talk a little bit about things like app and browser security. Likewise, all here within this course and I'm looking forward to it. This is gonna be a really great course. I'm excited to learn right along with you. Who might this course be most appropriate for? Well, really anyone, anyone. Now, I will tell you, there is some prerequisite knowledge that you have to bring to the table if you're gonna view the course. You have to have an understanding of networking communications, TCP IP based communications. You have to have an understanding, be able to work your way through an operating system. But past that, anyone really, it really doesn't matter. Whether you're taking an exam, we're gonna teach you a lot of the concepts that you would see in an exam booth. But we're also gonna teach you concepts that you would see if you're sitting that booth called your cubicle and maybe you're working on help desk. So you can be taking an exam, you can be on a support staff, you can be a beginner to Windows, right? Just keep in mind that you need basic OS and networking skills when you start to watch this course, it will help you a lot. Well, this is gonna be great. We're gonna be also reminding you that we have so many great notes that Wes has put together so you can follow along with him. I know I'm excited to get started, but Wes, why are you excited about this course? You know, I like working in Windows and I know it's one of the most common operating systems in corporate America today and maybe even corporations worldwide. So I love giving the ability to help learners navigate through this popular operating system that's used by the industry as well as how to manage, maintain and support it. And I hope to impart that knowledge to you as well as some of the fun that we're gonna have in the course. All right, well, thank you so much for choosing ACI Learning and get your pen ready.
