Course Description

This 18-video course helps prepare learners for AZ-500 Microsoft Azure Security Technologies certification exam by exploring several methods available to improve Azure storage account security and encrypt cloud data, and demonstrating how to use VM (virtual machine) disks. You will examine ways to harden Azure storage accounts; how to control storage account container access using access policies; and what is encrypted by default. Next, learners will observe how to use RBAC (role-based access control) to control resource access in a cloud computing environment. You will then learn how to configure custom encryption keys. This course examines the soft delete feature within an Azure storage account for blobs and binary large objects, which is not enabled by default. Next, learn to regenerate storage account keys in the portal, in PowerShell, and using the CLI (command-line interface). You will learn to use shared access signatures in Azure Storage Explorer, and to configure access policies for storage queues. Finally, learn to configure VM disk encryption by using PowerShell.
