Guy launched his first training website in 1995 and he's been helping people learn IT technologies ever since. He has been a sysadmin, instructor, sales engineer, IT manager, and entrepreneur. In his most recent venture, he founded and led a cloud-based training infrastructure company that provided virtual labs for some of the largest software vendors in the world. Guy’s passion is making complex technology easy to understand. His activities outside of work have included riding an elephant and skydiving (although not at the same time).

Congratulations on making it all the way through this learning path. If you’re preparing to write the Microsoft AZ-300 exam, bear in mind that although we’ve covered all of the major topics in the exam guide, there are a few details that weren’t covered. I’ll list them for you and show you where you can learn more about them.

  • When you enable Enterprise State Roaming in Azure Active Directory, Windows 10 users can synchronize their settings to the cloud, making it easy for them to go from one device to another.

To save you some typing, I put all of the links from this video in the transcript below.

  • While it’s possible for an organization to have multiple Azure AD directories, you need to keep some things in mind when managing them. Find out more at this link.

https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/users-groups-roles/licensing-directory-independence

  • A common security problem is when users have a level of access they don’t need anymore. To find and correct these issues, you can run an access review in Azure AD.

https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/governance/access-reviews-overview

  • OAuth2 is a popular standard for authorizing access to web applications and APIs. To learn more about how the OAuth2 authorization flow works with Azure AD, have a look at this page.

https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/active-directory/develop/v1-protocols-oauth-code

  • We covered how to encrypt a disk on a virtual machine, but if you want to encrypt the data in an Azure SQL database, then you’ll need to use the Always Encrypted feature.

https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/sql-database/sql-database-always-encrypted-azure-key-vault

  • If you want to make sure that your data is protected even while it’s being processed, then you can use Microsoft’s new Confidential Compute capability. This secures a portion of the CPU and memory that are being used to process your data.

  • Finally, Role-based Access Control (RBAC) is a great way to secure your Azure resources, but sometimes it can be tricky to figure out why it’s not working the way you expect. Here’s a link to some RBAC troubleshooting tips.

I also recommend that you get more hands-on experience with Azure, which will help reinforce what you’ve learned.
