AZ-500 Microsoft Azure Security Technologies
In this course students will gain the knowledge and skills needed to implement security controls, maintain the security posture, and identify and remediation of vulnerabilities by using a variety of security tools. The course covers configuring and deploying security solutions for cloud N-tier architecture.
In addition we would like to recommend taking AZ-500 Security Hands-on lab.
Students should have at least one year of hands-on experience securing Azure workloads and experience with security controls for workloads on Azure.
At Course Completion
- Describe specialized data classifications on Azure
- Identify Azure data protection mechanisms
- Implement Azure data encryption methods
- Secure Internet protocols and how to implement them on Azure

Before attending this course, it is strongly encouraged that learners acquire the knowledge equivalent to what is assessed as part of the Microsoft Azure Administrator Associate certification.
Content of Microsoft Azure Security Technologies
Module 1: Manage Identity and Access
Gone are the days when security focused on a strong perimeter defense to keep malicious hackers out. Anything outside the perimeter was treated as hostile, whereas inside the wall, an organization’s systems were trusted. Today's security posture is to assume breach and use the Zero Trust model. Security professionals no longer focus on perimeter defense. Modern organizations have to support access to data and services evenly from both inside and outside the corporate firewall. This module will serve as your roadmap as you start building more security into your Azure solutions.Lessons
