About the Course

Google Workspace Security is the third course in the Google Workspace Administration series. In this course you will focus on the various aspects of Google Workspace Security including user password policies and how to enable and enforce two step verification (2SV) for your users. You will learn about application security and understand how to whitelist and block API access to your account. You will see how Google Workspace can easily be integrated with a number of predefined 3rd party applications. You will also become familiar with the SSO options in Google Workspace. Finally you will understand how to spot potential security risks within your organization and learn how to address them using the tools available in the admin console. By the end of this course participants will be able to: - Configure Google's default user protection settings such as password policies and recovery options. - Understand best practices for implementing and enforcing 2-step verification in your organization. - Understand the SSO options available and be able to identify the differences between using Google as an Identity Provider versus a 3rd party provider. - Be able to integrate cloud based enterprise SAML applications into your Google Workspace account using Google as the Identity Provider. - Understand how to integrate your own LDAP compliant applications into Google Workspace using the Secure LDAP service. - Restrict access to a Google service to trusted applications only to prevent malicious attacks on that service. - Manage the Google Workspace Marketplace for your organization to ensure only trusted applications can be installed on your devices. - Use the security and alert centers to identify, triage, and take action on security and privacy issues in your organization. Prerequisites You should have completed the Introduction to Google Workspace Administration and Managing Google Workspace courses....

AMAZING COURSE.... A MUST FOR G SUITE ADMINS. No matter whether experienced or a newbie, G Suite Security course will take you from the very basics of the info which may get often overlooked.

Basic and composes largely of external links to the Google Help Centre. Where exercises exist, they are bullet pointed scenarios which require you to have read the Google Help Centre material. Where the very few videos exist, these are good and very educational. Quizes were welcome but did not feel like they would necessarily be reflections of real world scenarios (seemed more like a test of you remembering the Help Centre material, than actually testing you on applied use of the G Suite environment).

Course is not up to date. Some UI items have moved, and some are unavailable for business accounts, without it being mentioned. The alert center is now called "System Defined Rules" , again, it's not mentioned in the course. Some other typos and inaccuracies are worth paid attention to.

Overall helpful in understanding G Suite administration. However, there are multiple instructional discrepancies and a few grammatical errors. You should be doing regular quality assurance testing on your courses.

This course needs to be updated as sometimes it's hard to find what you are looking for. More practical videos should be provided and would help a lot of people like who rather see how things work, visually.

Para aprovechar por completo la inducción con los ejercicios, falta actualizar o contar con una cuenta de Workspace con versión que contenga todas las aplicaciones

Some of the information seemed a little out of date as items in the Admin Console had moved. Otherwise, it was very informative!

SSO module needs to be completely rewritten to match current Admin Console, unable to find referenced GUI parts. App Security is a complete Train Wreck, instructions don't even remotely match Admin console, and many part s have moved outside of App Security section of Console. Unable to completely follow and setup per instructions, as parts had moved, and other limitations of Trial G Suite.

Security Tools module same as above, impossible to follow, as too many parts had moved since curriculum was written.
