Book Description

Cloud technologies have made building a defense-in-depth security strategy of paramount importance. Without proper planning and discipline in deploying the security posture across Microsoft 365 and Azure, you are compromising your infrastructure and data. Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals is a comprehensive guide that covers all of the exam objectives for the SC-900 exam while walking you through the core security services available for Microsoft 365 and Azure.

This book starts by simplifying the concepts of security, compliance, and identity before helping you get to grips with Azure Active Directory, covering the capabilities of Microsoft’s identity and access management (IAM) solutions. You'll then advance to compliance center, information protection, and governance in Microsoft 365. You'll find out all you need to know about the services available within Azure and Microsoft 365 for building a defense-in-depth security posture, and finally become familiar with Microsoft's compliance monitoring capabilities.

By the end of the book, you'll have gained the knowledge you need to take the SC-900 certification exam and implement solutions in real-life scenarios.

  • Explore the authentication, access control, and identity management capabilities of Azure Active Directory
  • Understand the identity protection and governance aspects of Azure and Microsoft 365
  • Get to grips with the basic security capabilities for networks, VMs, and data
  • Discover security management through Microsoft Defender for Cloud
  • Work with Microsoft Sentinel and Microsoft 365 Defender

Who this book is for
