On this accelerated Microsoft Certified: Security Operations Analyst Associate course, you’ll learn to investigate and respond to threats to your business using Microsoft Azure Sentinel, Azure Defender, Microsoft 365 Defender, and third-party security products.

In just 3 days, you’ll build knowledge on collaborating with stakeholders to secure information technology systems for your organisation. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Reduce business risk by rapidly remediating active attacks in the environment
  • Advising on improvements to threat protection practices
  • Refer violations of business policies to appropriate stakeholders

At the end of this course, you’ll sit exam Exam SC-200: Microsoft Security Operations Analyst and achieve your certification. As Firebrand are a Microsoft Gold Partner for Learning, you’ll get access to the official exam, Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOCs) and learn from Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs).

Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll achieve your certification twice as fast as traditional training.
