Microsoft Learn – A new, free, and interactive destination for customers, Microsoft employees, and partners to quickly learn Azure skills and prepare for certifications. Operating as Microsoft’s core technical educational offering, it is designed to provide each audience a “learn by doing” experience with self-paced learning, hands on “learn by doing” activities, and the ability to get recognized with achievements.


Penetration testing in Azure – One of the benefits of using Azure for application testing and deployment is that you can quickly get environments created. You don’t have to worry about requisitioning, acquiring, and “racking and stacking” your own on-premises hardware.
This is great – but you still need to make sure you perform your normal security due diligence. One of the things you need to do is penetration test the applications you deploy in Azure.
Secure your Environment with Azure Security Center – Getting Started – In this lab, you will investigate the built-in security reporting and analysis tools in Azure. You will enable Azure Security Center and open the console to see what the analysis is reporting for the Azure environment.
Configure your network for security – In this lab you will configure your network to maximize security, create a new Virtual Network with subnets, and create NSG’s and subnets to mimic configuration for a standard three-layer security zone model.

Office 365

Test Office 365 with cloud adoption Test Lab Guides (TLGs) – Use these cloud adoption Test Lab Guides (TLGs) to set up demonstration, proof of concept, or dev/test environments for Office 365, Dynamics 365, and Office Server products. TLGs help you quickly learn about Microsoft products. They’re great for situations where you need to evaluate a technology or configuration before you decide whether it’s right for you or before you roll it out to users. The “I built it out myself and it works” hands-on experience helps you understand the deployment requirements of a new product or solution so you can better plan for hosting it in production.
