Securing Identities


Learn how Azure Multi-Factor Authentication helps safeguard access to data and applications, helping to meet customer demand for a simple sign-in process. Learn how to use Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management to manage, control, and monitor access to Azure resources within your organization.

Course Overview

This course teaches IT Professionals to understand the challenges that organizations face in keeping modern IT environments secure, as the more distributed environments that are part of a cloud-first or hybrid world have rapidly created new security challenges for IT. The course focuses on three key areas in the defence against attackers who target security vulnerabilities, resulting particularly from credential theft and compromised identities: Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management (PIM).

Students learn to implement two-step verification to secure the sign-in process, as well has how to use advanced features like trusted IPs and Fraud Alerts with MFA to customize their identity access strategy. Using Privileged Identity Management, students learn how to apply just the right amount of access rights for just the right amount of time to the various administrative roles as well as to resources.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Use Azure RBAC to grant a granular level of access based on an administrator’s assigned tasks.
  • Use Azure Multi-Factor Authentication to configure a strong authentication for users at sign-in.
  • User Azure AD Privileged Identity Management to configure access rights based on just-in-time administration.

Prerequisites

  • Successful Cloud Administrators start this role with experience on operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.
