Course Learning Outcome


After completing this course, students should be able to:

  • Implement an identity management solution
  • Implement authentication and access management solutions
  • Implement access management for apps
  • Plan and implement an identity governance strategy


Successful learners will have prior knowledge and understanding of:

  • Security best practices and industry security requirements such as defense in depth, least privileged access, shared responsibility, and zero trust model.
  • Be familiar with identity concepts such as authentication, authorization, and active directory.
  • Have some experience deploying Azure workloads. This course does not cover the basics of Azure administration, instead the course content builds on that knowledge by adding security specific information.
  • Some experience with Windows and Linux operating systems and scripting languages is helpful but not required. Course labs may use PowerShell and the CLI.
