You will learn about Azure Monitor, Azure Log Analytics and Azure Security Center. Next, you will also learn about Azure alert management and Azure Security Center alerts specifically.
In this course, students will learn how to manage and configure Azure Active Directory in basic and advanced deployment scenarios. Students will learn how to manage hybrid identity to include attribute writeback as well as how to manage devices with Azure Active Directory.
This course is the 4th and last in a series around Azure Security, reflecting on the Microsoft exam objectives as a starting point, but also covering broader topics than wat is required for the exam.This course has a core focus on deploying, configuring and managing security of your data that is stored in Azure, as well as how to secure your business-critical application workloads. You will learn about securing Azure SQL, covering different built-in and sometimes unique to public cloud features of SQL Server. Next, you will also learn the basics of securing other data solutions like HD Insights, Azure Data Lake and Cosmos DB. Another part of the course discusses on how to enable and configure data encryption, using Azure Key Vault as secrets store. Last, you will also learn about several security features of Azure App Services, optimizing security for Azure Web Apps and Azure App Services Environment.
In this course, students will learn how to implement and configure advanced security controls in Azure Active Directory, including Multi-Factor Authentication and Privileged Identity Management. These controls are implemented to secure user identities in Azure Active Directory and provide advanced reporting, authentication, and authorization through the Azure AD identity service.
This course explores the Security and Compliance features now available within Office 365. The course starts with a general review of core Security and Compliance features found within Office 365. The course will then move into specific areas such as Data Loss Prevention, Device Management, Permissions and core Security along with overall Administration and Reporting. Each topic area will be discussed and demonstrated.
In this module, you will focus on pricing and support models available with Microsoft to include but not limited to Azure subscriptions, planning and managing costs, support options available with Azure, and the service lifecycle in Azure.
In this module you will learn basic cloud concepts to include but not limited to the following: Why Cloud Services?, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Public, Private, and Hybrid cloud models.
In this module, you will learn the basics of core services available within Microsoft Azure to include but not limited to Core Azure architectural components, Core Azure Services and Products, Azure Solutions, and Azure management tools.
In this module, you will learn about security, privacy, compliance, and trust with Microsoft Azure. You will become familiar with the following topics: securing network connectivity in Azure, core Azure identity services, security tools and features, Azure governance methodologies, monitoring and reporting in Azure, and privacy, compliance and data protection standards in Azure.
In this hands-on lab, you will implement many of the Azure Security Center features to secure their cloud-based Azure infrastructure (IaaS) and applications (PaaS). Specifically, you will ensure that any internet exposed resources have been properly secured and any non-required internet access disabled. Additionally, you will implement a “jump machine” for admins with Application Security enabled to prevent admins from installing non-approved software and potentially exposing cloud resources. You will then utilize custom alerts to monitor for TCP/IP Port Scans and then fire alerts and run books based on those attacks.
In this lab, an Azure Virtual Machine disk will be encrypted using the following steps:Deploy a VM into Azure that is not encryptedObtain and run the Azure Disk Encryption Prerequisites Azure PowerShell scriptEncrypt your virtual machines
In this lab, you will create a virtual network that will allow the virtual machines you create to securely connect with each other. You will then create two virtual machines and specify the virtual network configuration and the availability set configuration along with storage for the virtual machine.
In this lab, you will create an Azure Web App and a SQL Database and configure the popular content management system (CMS) Orchard CMS. You will then configure the web app to automatically scale based on actual CPU usage.
This lab is designed to help you become familiar with several features of Microsoft Azure Log Analytics.
