Exercise 1 - Enabling BitLocker

BitLocker is a built-in security feature available in Windows operating system. It provides disk encryption facility thereby preventing unauthorized access of drive data. BitLocker is an effective way to implement data protection. BitLocker uses a key to encrypt and lock the disk. The key needs to be entered to unlock or decrypt the disk. For example, if the BitLocker encrypted disk is stolen, an unauthorized user cannot view or retrieve the data without decrypting the disk.

As an administrator, you can turn on BitLocker on the disk volumes that have Exchange server installed on them. This will protect the mailboxes. You need to deploy BitLocker on Exchange server. Before deploying BitLocker, the environment needs to be set up.
