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 start building more security into your Azure solutions.
