SC-200: Microsoft Security Operations Analyst is a four-day associate-level course designed for professionals who work in security operations or security administrator job roles. This course focuses specifically on the knowledge and skills required to secure IT systems for an organization, reduce organizational risk by rapidly remediating active attacks in the environment, and advise on improvements to threat protection practices.

During this course, you will learn how to investigate, respond, and hunt for threats using Microsoft Azure Sentinel, Azure Defender, and Microsoft 365 Defender. You will explore how to mitigate cyberthreats using these technologies. And you will configure and use Azure Sentinel, as well as utilize Kusto Query Language (KQL), to perform detection, analysis, and reporting.

However, you will get a clear overview of the Microsoft certification process, plus you will get tips and tricks, testing strategies, practice questions, and useful information to help you pass the exam successfully. Once you have certification, you will then be able to delve more into Azure security by taking SC-900 and SC-300 training. If you certify in AZ-500 training, you will then be proficient in Azure Security.
