Exercise 1 - Enable BitLocker

BitLocker is a full disk encryption security feature that provides protection for the operating system and user data. The protection provided by BitLocker remains enforced on the encrypted disk whether the computer is turned on or off. Therefore, this technology ensures confidentiality of disk contents even against ‘offline attacks’ made by disabling Windows or physically removing the hard disk to view the contents on another computer.

BitLocker uses Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that provides integrated protection for Windows and data files during boot phase of the operating system. TPM is a microchip embedded on a system motherboard and can be enabled using the BIOS of the computer system.
