The course is part of these learning paths
At a time when security breaches seem to be an everyday occurrence, it’s become more and more important to protect resources with more than just a username and password. It’s even more important to protect resources from INTERNAL threats. By implementing Azure AD Privileged Identity Management, organizations can protect their resources with improved security features, and even keep an eye on what legitimate administrators are doing.
In this course, you’ll learn how to implement Azure AD Privileged Identity Management. We’ll start the course by touching on an overview of what Azure AD Privileged Identity Management is and what it offers. We will then work through the deployment of PIM and how it works with multi-factor authentication. As we work through some demos, you will learn how to enable PIM and how to navigate tasks in PIM.
We’ll then cover the activation of roles and the assignment of those roles, including permanent roles and just-in-time roles. We’ll also cover the concepts of updating and removing role assignments, reinforcing these concepts through demonstrations.
We’ll round out the course with supported management scenarios, configuring PIM management access, and how to process requests.

Welcome to Azure AD Privileged Identity Management. My name is Thomas Mitchell, and I'll be taking you through this course on Privileged Identity Management. Otherwise known as PIM. I'm an Azure content author at Cloud Academy, and I have over 25 years of deep IT experience. Several of those years with cloud technologies. If you have any questions, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This course is intended for IT professionals who need or want to attain Azure certification, those who wish to become Azure architects, and those who are simply tasked with managing and supporting Microsoft Azure. To get the most from this course, you should have a moderate understanding of Microsoft Azure and of security concepts and admin role management. We'll start the course by touching on an overview of what Azure AD Privileged Identity Management is and what it offers. We will then work through the deployment of PIM, and how it works with multi-factor authentication.
As we work through some demos, you will also learn how to enable PIM and how to navigate tasks in PIM. Next we'll cover the activation of roles and the assignment of those roles to users through lectures and some demos. We'll cover the concepts of updating and removing role assignments, reinforcing these concepts through more demonstrations. We'll round out the course with supported management scenarios, configuring PIM management access, and how to process requests. These concepts will be reinforced with a few demonstrations as well, so you can see how these tasks are completed. By the end of this course, you should be able to deploy Azure AD Privileged Identity Management and use it to manage access to roles and resources in Azure and in Azure Active Directory. You will also understand how just-in-time access is configured and how it mitigates threats to stolen admin credentials. We'd love to get your feedback on this course, so please give it a rating when you're finished. If you're ready to learn about Azure AD Privileged Identity Management and how to set it up, let's get started.
