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.

Good. Probably best to state somewhere what the course requires for the package used. This course is most useful if you have the G Suite Enterprise as LDAP, Security Dashboards and some others are not available in your basic packages.

I think that the course material is very useful to understand but sometimes the questions do not relate directly to the course which is probably done to make us dig further but then we may miss what is the most important information

Needs a lot of updating because of updates to Google Workspace, but the basics are still there. You just have to figure out how to get to where the exercises want you to go when it doesn't match up quite right because of updates.

Overall good, but I felt the SSO and LDAP parts were hard to follow as it wasn't possible to complete realistic workshops on these. Perhaps when the videos are added it will help.

Good as usual and easy to follow.

Content needs to be updated frequently so the instructions and Quiz requirements can match what the student actually experiences.

I did not have access or was unable to find many of the security items in excercise #2 and the final excercise, otherwise fairly detailed

In some places the menu differs from the reality and / or it was not possible to find a suitable expression in Hungarian.
