About this course
The Azure Security Engineer implements security controls, maintains the security posture, and finds and remediates vulnerabilities by using a variety of security tools. Responsibilities include helping protect data, applications, and networks; managing identity and access; implementing threat protection; and responding to security incident escalations. The Azure Security Engineer often serves as part of a larger team dedicated to cloud-based management and security. The Azure Security Engineer might also help secure hybrid environments as part of an end-to-end infrastructure.
The Azure Security Engineer should have strong skills in scripting and automation; a deep understanding of networking, virtualization, and cloud n-tier architecture; and a strong familiarity with cloud capabilities in general and Microsoft Azure products and services in particular. The Azure Security Engineer should also be familiar with other Microsoft products and services.
The Azure Security Engineer role doesn’t focus on helping secure Microsoft 365 and remains separate from the M365 Security and Compliance Administrator role.

Estimate Time : 8-12 hours
Module 1 – Manage Identity and Access
Gone are the days when security focused on a strong perimeter defense to keep malicious hackers out. Anything outside the perimeter was treated as hostile, whereas inside the wall, an organization’s systems were trusted. Today’s security posture is to assume breach and use the Zero Trust model. Security professionals no longer focus on perimeter defense. Modern organizations have to support access to data and services evenly from both inside and outside the corporate firewall. This module will serve as your roadmap as you create and move applications and data to Microsoft Azure. Understanding the security services offered by Azure is key in implementing security-enhanced services. In this module, you will:
- Understand the Zero Trust Model.
- Configure Azure Active Directory for workloads.
- Configure Azure AD Privileged Identity Management.
- Configure Azure tenant security.
Module 2 – Implement Platform Protection
We know that security is job one in the cloud and how important it is that you find accurate and timely information about Azure security. One of the best reasons to use Azure for your applications and services is to take advantage of its wide array of security tools and capabilities. These tools and capabilities help make it possible to create secure solutions on the secure Azure platform. In this module, you will:
- Implement network security.
- Implement host security.
- Configure container Security.
- Implement Azure Resource Manager security.
Module 3 – Manage Security Operations
Azure provides security mechanisms to aid administrators who manage Azure cloud services and virtual machines. These mechanisms include: Authentication and role-based access control. Monitoring, logging, and auditing. Certificates and encrypted communications. A web management portal. In this module, you will learn:
- Configure security services.
- Configure security policies.
- Manage security alerts.
Module 4 – Secure Data and Applications
Azure security for data and applications offers a comprehensive solution that helps organizations take full advantage of the promise of cloud applications while maintaining control with improved visibility into activity. It also increases protection of critical data across cloud applications. With tools to help uncover Shadow IT, assess risk, enforce policies, investigate activities and stop threats, organizations can safely move to the cloud while maintaining control of critical data. In this module, you will:
- Configure security policies to manage data.
- Configure security for data infrastructure.
- Configure encryption for data at rest.
- Implement security for application delivery.
- Configure application security.
- Configure and manage Key Vault.
