An attacker who gains administrative access to an Azure subscription has complete control of the workloads running in the subscription. In this session you'll learn about configuring Azure to support Multi-Factor Authentication, Privileged Access Management, Role Based Access Control, conditional access policies. You'll also learn how to monitor your azure subscription for suspicious administrative activity.

You will learn:
