  • Use the Microsoft Bot Framework to implement conversational bots.

According to the Wall Street Journal, "All IT Jobs Are Cybersecurity Jobs Now."

In this course, we examine the concept of Red team - Blue team security professionals. You will practice Red team versus Blue team exercises, where one group of security pros--the red team--attacks some part or parts of a company's security infrastructure, and an opposing group--the blue team--defends against the attack. Both teams work to strengthen a company's defenses.

You'll learn how both the red and blue teams help the business attain a higher level of security, something the security industry is now calling the Purple team.


After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the current enterprise security landscape

  • Define the Assume Compromise approach

  • Practice Red team versus Blue team exercises

  • Develop organizational security preparation, processes, and responses

With identity as the new perimeter in today's security landscape, it's important to keep up on the latest ways to manage it. Identity--which defines what protocols you're allowed to use, who you're allowed to interact with, and what you're allowed to do--has evolved significantly in the last few years.

In this security course, go beyond the firewall and ports, and learn practical steps and prescriptive guidance on identity management, based on proven, real-world experience from Microsoft Incident Response teams.

Start with a conceptual look at identity, explore Active Directory best practices, find out how to secure Azure Active Directory, and then get hands-on with a combination of videos, text, and hosted labs.

You will create a protective bastion host for an existing domain, configure Privilege Access Management (PAM) and Just in Time Administration (JIT), install JRE, and set up Microsoft Identity Manager. With successful course completion, you will understand the hows and whys of improving the security posture of your environment, and get started implementing and managing identity as part of your cybersecurity defense plan.

You'll learn about:

  • How identity is the new control plane, the perimeter that is replacing the firewall.

  • The recommended steps to secure Active Directory.

  • Azure Security Architecture and the Identity Federation and access solutions supported by Azure architecture.

  • How Kerberos and Privilege Attribute Certification function.
