This course is intended for people who want to become Microsoft-certified Azure security engineers or those who are simply tasked with implementing security controls, maintaining the security posture of an Azure environment, or protecting data, applications, and networks. To get the most from this course, you should have a moderate understanding of Microsoft Azure and of basic security principles.
To kick things off, we're going to start with host security. We're going to dive into configuring endpoint security within VMs and how to harden VMs in Microsoft Azure. We'll also get into configuring system updates for VMs in Azure, as well as baseline configuration.
Next, we'll get into configuring container security. You'll learn how to configure networks, authentication, and container isolation. You'll also learn how to configure AKS security and how to configure container registry.
Lastly, you'll learn about vulnerability management tools and strategies.
By the time you finish this course, you should have a full understanding of how to configure Azure VM and container security.
We'd love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you're finished.
