Introduction

As more companies move their assets and resources into the cloud, keeping them safe is a primary consideration for all IT and security departments. Cybercrime is a multi-billion-dollar business. Failure to protect your organization can be costly from the loss of data and loss of reputation.

Microsoft Azure offers a suite of threat protection and detection systems to minimize and mitigate your threat surface across your whole estate and improve your overall cloud security posture.

In this lesson, you’ll explore the capabilities and benefits of using Azure Security center, what Azure Secure score can tell you about your organization's level of security readiness, how Azure Defender can protect your organization's assets and resources. Finally, you’ll explore the use of cloud security posture management and understand the security baseline in Azure.

After completing this lesson, you'll be able to: 

  • Describe the security management capabilities of Azure

  • Describe the benefits and use cases of Azure Defender

  • Understand CSPM and the security baseline.

SC-900 Certification Exam

The SC-900 Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals certification exam is designed for candidates looking to demonstrate foundational level knowledge of security, compliance, and identity (SCI) across cloud-based and related Microsoft services.

This audience is broad and may include business stakeholders, new or existing IT professionals, or students who have an interest in Microsoft security, compliance, and identity solutions.

Candidates should be familiar with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 and want to understand how Microsoft security, compliance, and identity solutions can span across these solution areas to provide a holistic and end-to-end solution.

This exam can be taken as an optional first step in learning about Microsoft security, compliance, and identity. While it would be a beneficial first step, validating foundational level knowledge, taking this exam is not a pre-requisite before taking any other Microsoft security-based certifications.
