If you got two or more wrong, revisit these materials in the endpoint security lesson:

  • Webcast: Top tactics for endpoint security
  • Technical article: Keeping pace with emerging endpoint security technologies
  • Podcast: Endpoint enforcement: Smart policies to control the endpoint explosion
  • If you got four or more correct, return to Identity and Access Management Security School and start another lesson.
