Class

Modern and Secure Client Management

The challenge with Windows 10/11 is that it can be both legacy and modern at the same time. You need to master both worlds simultaneously while using the same toolset.

In this training, you'll master them both; you'll learn how to build a rock-solid OS Deployment solution for Windows 10/11 using Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, and PowerShell from experts in the field.

You'll also learn to master new methods, like Windows Autopilot, Mobile Device Management, and Windows Intune. But we all know this is not enough; all your workstations need to be protected and secure. Therefore, you'll learn how to apply security configurations to protect against cyber attacks and ransomware.

Class Overview

During this training, you'll learn to deploy and manage enterprise clients using both on-premises and cloud solutions. You'll get a thorough walk-through of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Intune), co-management, Active Directory, Azure Active Directory, and supporting technologies, like DNS, DHCP PowerShell, etc. Not to forget, a deep technical drill down into the Windows 10 platform. You'll learn everything related to client management.

This class runs with security in mind for all steps. Therefore, you'll learn how to secure the entire solution, both the client system and tools. You'll learn things like Conditional Access, MFA, Privileged Access Management, Privileged Access Workstations, Secure Admin Workstations, Defender for Endpoint, automatic patching, Administrative Tiering, secure service account configuration for all systems, and much more.

Leading client management experts developed this training, and it's based on real-life experiences from more than 40 years of working with client management in organizations of various sizes. The training always uses the latest version of Windows clients, servers, and system management components.

In this training, you'll learn how to deploy, configure, and operate Windows Server in On-Premises, Hybrid, and Cloud Only, focusing on the most common use cases for Windows Server and Azure Services. You'll learn how to deploy these roles using various methods, operating system deployment, ARM templates, and PowerShell to push out configuration.

It all needs to be secure! Therefore, you'll learn how to configure and administer the solutions using Multifactor Authentication, Privileged Access Management, Privileged Access Workstations, Secure Admin Workstations, Administrative Tiering, Defender for Endpoint, Defender for Identity, Azure AD Password Protection, BitLocker, Remote Credential Guard, Patch Management, Authentication Silos, secure service account configuration for all systems and much more.

Class Overview

You'll learn best and common practices to build and manage a secure and resilient environment. During the training, you'll deploy and manage Administrative Tiering, deploy Windows servers, implement Administrative Tiering and isolation to best prevent cyber attacks, and in case of a disaster, make sure it's built so that you can recover quickly and easily.

We all know that security is extremely important, so in this class, you'll learn how to correctly configure authentication silos for your important administrative accounts and deploy and configure privileged access workstations to ensure your administrative credentials are not spread around. Coupled with Conditional Access policies, you´ll have all the tools to successfully secure your hybrid environment.

System Center could be used to help you manage parts of the environment, so you'll learn how to use both the important parts from the system center suite, and also to connect to azure correctly to establish a cloud presence, and get the hybrid configuration correct!

During the week, you'll build and configure a close to perfect modern infrastructure, with parts on-premises and parts in the cloud. The class fits regardless of whether you're working with Hyper-V, VMware, or have everything running on physical hardware. It even fits if you run everything in the cloud.

Everything! Your accommodation, meals, classes, VIP seminars, on-site leisure facilities, and all the fun stuff in between. You won’t have to worry about a thing; we’ve got you covered - just relax and enjoy the ride! 

My company says it’s too expensive, how can I convince them otherwise?

The cost of this training includes all expenses, even frequently hidden expenses like food and lodging – it really is an all-inclusive event!  Make sure your company understands there will be no additional expenses or charges.  Furthermore, the return on investment for Geek Week is instantaneous.  We’ve had former students tell us they wished they’d attended the training earlier, so they could have saved more than 100,000 USD on bad hardware and software investments.

Their pedagogical experience is sky high and based on many years of experience. This means that much of what you’ll learn at Geek Week is not something you could read from a book. The level is advanced, and you’ll receive an Education Certificate following graduation.  

What language will the courses be provided in?

For Geek Week 2022 in Stockholm, all courses and instruction will be provided in Swedish.

Is WiFi available during classes?

Yes, WiFi is available both during classes and at the hotel where you’ll be staying.
