Windows Features: Windows Defender, Firewall, Security Center & Event Viewer

Windows Features: Windows Defender, Firewall, Security Center & Event Viewer The hallmark of any operating system is its security capabilities.  In this next lesson we introduce you to the security infrastructure of Windows Operating Systems: the Windows Defender tool, Windows Firewall, the Windows Security Center and Event Viewer. This lesson discusses in depth good security practices for protecting the documents and materials on a computing system. For example, we begin with an outline of Windows Defender and discuss where it’s located, how it’s now an integrated feature of Windows Operating System.  We discuss the importance of systemically checking its settings to ensure it’s able to serve as the primary, stand-alone security barrier or operate in conjunction with an external security product yet not be disabled by malware or other type of malicious attack.
