Description

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.

Transcript

Azure AD Privileged Identity Management is included with Azure AD Premium P2 edition. While in the preview, Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management provided no license checks. It allowed a tenant to try the service. With Azure AD PIM now in general availability, a trial or paid subscription must be present to continue using PIM. The first person using PIM in a directory is automatically assigned two directory roles. The security administrator role and the privileged role administrator role. Only privileged role admins can manage the assignment of Azure AD directory roles for users. Additionally, you can run the security wizard which will walk you through the initial discovery process as well as the assignment process.
