You're watching ITProTv. [MUSIC] >> Greetings everyone and welcome to the course overview of the AZ-500 series of which we are about to commence. I will be your host throughout that series, my name is Daniel Lowrie and I've got over 20 years of experience in IT. And my specialty is in that of offensive security so I hope to lend a little bit of that to the conversation. Joining me will be our subject matter expert, one Mr. Adam Gordon. >> Adam why don't you tell us a little about yourself? Absolutely, good to be with you Daniel again. And of course with all of you, I do just like Daniel does spend a lot of time talking about infrastructure and security. I tend to spend more time on the blue team side these days. You'll hear us go back and forth quite a bit throughout our conversations. This being a focus course around Azure Security, we have a lot of interesting insights for you. I've spent the better part of the last 40 years working as a consultant and a trainer in the IT space. And the better part of that time has been spent on platforms like Microsoft showing technology and dealing with the complexities of technology to customers and students all over the world. >> All right, now that we've got the pleasantries out of the way, I want you to tell us who is the intended audience for this series? >> So any of you out there that want to take advantage of either understanding more about the Azure Security capabilities across all the different areas of services, functions, features, etc, and or are looking to maybe learn a specific aspect of those security technologies and implement them in the real world. Maybe project driven capabilities for instance, but equally and most importantly if you're looking to study for taken past the AZ-500 exam, ultimately become an Azure Security engineer, well, this course is definitely for you. But keep in mind you gotta have the background knowledge to be able to work with these technologies. We're not gonna spend a lot of time showing you how to do those things, we're gonna assume you know how to do them and explain how to use the technologies to augment your security. >> All right, let's talk a minute for our viewers out there about the course goals and the structure of the series as we work our way through it. >> So when we think about the course overall, we're gonna look at four major areas that represent our overall capabilities on the Azure platform from a security standpoint. We're gonna break those down based on how Microsoft presents them in the exam blueprint. Those major areas are managing identity and access, implementing platform protection, managing security operations, and securing data and applications. And within that we're gonna have a series of individual topics for each of those major four areas and then a series of episodes that represent the skills necessary to achieve all of the topics and all the goals Microsoft says are important focus-worthy and necessary for you to be successful on the AZ-500 exam. >> And speaking of being successful on the AZ-500 exam, could you tell us a little bit about the exam itself? >> So the exam is gonna be, if you've ever taken any traditional Microsoft exams and I'm hoping you have at this point in your career, it's gonna be similar to what you're used to seeing. There'll be some multiple choice questions, there will be the ability for you to demonstrate how to do or implement a certain skill through some sort of task. So you'll have a combination of those environments and those capabilities asked about on the exam. So a little bit of synthesized and applying a little bit of show and tell and we throw some on top for good measure, a whole big heaping of well, just a lot of services and capabilities that we have to master, put it on the blender and you got yourself an exam. >> All right, and why don't you tell us why you're excited about this series? >> Well, I'm excited for a couple of reasons. First to be able to spend time with Daniel and walk through all of these details with him and get his perspective on how we implement these technologies. Always valuable to get that perspective and hear from him about how he sees this. I'm excited to spend time with all of you, showing you how to work with and use these technologies, giving you that real world perspective that we can bring to you but also help you focus on success areas for exam preparation. And I'm excited cuz I get to work with these technologies all the time in the real world and now I get to spend time showing you how to make sure you're working with them correctly and optimizing your security along the way. But you know what, in order to do that, you gotta stop watching this overview and you gotta start getting ready to go take the course and actually spend time with Daniel and I. So Daniel anything else we gotta go over before we wrap up? >> Adam I think that about covers it for the series and hopefully that gets you out there excited to watch and join us for it. Until then, have a great day. Thank you for watching ITProTv. [MUSIC]
