Azure Advent Calendar – Day #9: Azure Sentinel

Behind door #9 of the Azure Advent Calendar we have Azure Sentinel, Microsoft’s new cloud-native Security Information Event Management (SIEM) and Security Orchestration Automated Response (SOAR) scalable solution. There are a lot of nooks and crannies in this solution, so we will cover initial onboarding, how to use the tool, and how to expand the tool for some more advanced features (with some other Christmas gifts as well)!

AZ-500: Microsoft Azure Security Technologies Exam Study Notes

What better than to have started blogging about my exam preparation notes that with this perfectly representative AZ-500: Microsoft Azure Security Engineer Associate exam from Microsoft!

Sure, you *could* rely on roughly 10 years of Azure experience, but as this technology changes daily, I highly recommend preparing fully for this expansive exam!
