Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Liam Cleary, and welcome to my course, SharePoint Security Fundamentals. I am an associate director and architect at Protiviti, as well as an 11-year Microsoft MVP. As an IT administrator, you have been tasked with implementing SharePoint. This platform will become the collaboration hub for all internal and external partner collaboration. The business has asked that access to this system be easily managed and controlled, including allowing external users to gain access. The security team has mandated that the infrastructure be secure and that it utilizes a least privilege model for all service accounts. On top of all that, the permissions that are assigned need to be checked on a regular basis. In this course, we're going to walk through the configuration of SharePoint security and how it can be implemented. Some of the major topics that we will cover include SharePoint security levels, utilizing least privilege security, controlling access by using users, groups, and audiences, creation of custom permissions levels, and then managing and auditing permissions with PowerShell. By the end of the course, you'll know how to implement basic SharePoint security within your environment. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to implement SharePoint security with the SharePoint Security Fundamentals course at Pluralsight.
