So, Microsoft Ignite 2020 Virtual Edition kicked off in great style yesterday and is a 48 bonanza of learning and news of Microsoft Latest developments!
As part of this virtual experience, Microsoft have set up the Cloud Skills Challenge https://csc.docs.microsoft.com/ignite/registration
A series of 6 challenges that can be completed as Microsoft Learn modules aligned to a specific theme. I have completed 3 out of the 6 challenges at present and thought I would work through the remaining 3 challenges over the course of the next few days.
Cloud Skills Challenge – Security Challenge
Link to the Learning modules is here
This Challenge is covered off in 9 Microsoft Learn modules all focussed towards managing and maintaining Security across Microsoft’s CLoud platforms.
Define identity and access management in Azure Active Directory
Strengthen authentication (conditional access) with Azure Active Directory
Embrace Zero Trust with Azure Active Directory
Introduction to threat protection with Microsoft 365
Protect against threats with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection
Remediate risks with Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection
Safeguard your environment with Azure Advanced Threat Protection
Manage insider risk in Microsoft 365
Introduction to information protection and governance in Microsoft 365
These modules are fairly high level and easy to run through one by one within a relatively short period but offer a fantastic overview to common Security management approaches across Azure and Microsoft 365.
Once you have completed either this challenge, or one of the other 5 challenges you will be eligible for a ‘FREE’ Microsoft Exam Voucher which is worth over £100 in the UK if you are aiming to take one of the Associate or Expert exams, so its well worth the time to learn something new! You will also be entered into a sweepstake where you have the opportunity to meet someone high up in Microsoft which is really exciting to be part of!
So why not give it a go?! Happy Learning!

I would encourage others to jump on this journey, I’m not sure that I will be able to commit every day for 100 days, but as long as I can complete 100 days that will be great!
