Book Description

Microsoft Sentinel is a security information and event management (SIEM) tool developed by Microsoft that helps you integrate cloud security and artificial intelligence (AI).

The next part will focus on useful features, such as entity behavior analytics and Microsoft Sentinel playbooks, along with exploring the new bi-directional connector for ServiceNow. In the next part, you’ll be learning how to develop solutions that automate responses needed to handle security incidents and find out more about the latest developments in security, techniques to enhance your cloud security architecture, and explore how you can contribute to the security community.

By the end of this book, you’ll have learned how to implement Microsoft Sentinel to fit your needs and protect your environment from cyber threats and other security issues.
