This course includes security for identity and access, platform protection, data and applications, and security operations.

Skills gained

  • Implement enterprise governance strategies including role-based access control, Azure policies, and resource locks.
  • Implement an Azure AD infrastructure including users, groups, and multi-factor authentication.
  • Implement Azure AD Identity Protection including risk policies, conditional access, and access reviews.
  • Implement Azure AD Privileged Identity Management including Azure AD roles and Azure resources.
  • Implement Azure AD Connect including authentication methods and on-premises directory synchronization.
  • Implement perimeter security strategies including Azure Firewall.
  • Implement network security strategies including Network Security Groups and Application Security Groups.
  • Implement host security strategies including endpoint protection, remote access management, update management, and disk encryption.
  • Implement container security strategies including Azure Container Instances, Azure Container Registry, and Azure Kubernetes.
  • Implement Azure Key Vault including certificates, keys, and secretes.
  • Implement application security strategies including app registration, managed identities, and service endpoints.
  • Implement storage security strategies including shared access signatures, blob retention policies, and Azure Files authentication.
  • Implement database security strategies including authentication, data classification, dynamic data masking, and always encrypted.
  • Implement Azure Monitor including connected sources, log analytics, and alerts.
  • Implement Azure Security Center including policies, recommendations, and just in time virtual machine access.
  • Implement Azure Sentinel including workbooks, incidents, and playbooks.

Successful learners will have prior knowledge and understanding of:

  • Security best practices and industry security requirements such as defense in depth, least privileged access, role-based access control, multi-factor authentication, shared responsibility, and zero trust model.
  • Be familiar with security protocols such as Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Internet Security Protocol (IPSec), Secure Socket Layer (SSL), disk and data encryption methods.
  • Have some experience deploying Azure workloads. This course does not cover the basics of Azure administration, instead the course content builds on that knowledge by adding security specific information.
  • Have experience with Windows and Linux operating systems and scripting languages. Course labs may use PowerShell and the CLI.
