Welcome to this certification course on Microsoft’s AZ-500 – Microsoft Azure Security Technologies.
This course is designed to prepare you to sit for and pass your exam and to prove your skills in implementing secure solutions, services, identity, and operations within the Azure platform. Throughout the course, we’ll take a good look at the technologies you’ll need to know for the exam and help you not only understand what each service does, but also how you can apply the knowledge you gain here in your own environment.
This course will cover the following domains:
- Manage Identity and Access
- Implement Platform Protection
- Secure Data and Applications
- Manage Security Operations
This course is focused on securing solutions built within Azure, and so it is expected that you are already familiar with basic deployment, configuration, and implementation of several Azure services. For example, when discussing how to protect a virtual machine, we will focus on the features, services, and configuration required to do so. However, it is expected you would already know how to get a virtual machine up and running in the first case.
As such, it is recommended you have either completed the Azure Administration certification, or have a similar level of experience and familiarity working with and configuring services within Azure.
Within each domain are a variety of subtopics that we’ll cover in greater detail throughout the course. We’ll go through each domain, using each previous lesson as part of the foundation for the next topic, making it so that you not only can answer the questions on the exam, but also have a practical knowledge of how these pieces fit together and how you can design solutions to common problems faced in enterprises today.
You’ll get experience with hands-on labs to solidify your knowledge, and you can look forward to practice questions throughout the course to ensure you’re ready to move on.
So with all of that being said, it’s time to jump in and get started on becoming an Azure Security Engineer.
