Gimme Shelter

As my first blog series wraps up this month for “Breaking Down the Azure Network Chains“, I wanted to find a new series to bring to the community. I have determined that this new series will be a two (2) part security series titled “Gimme Shelter”.

Part 1 of this series will focus on Azure security services, technologies, and best practices and will kick off on Halloween, October 31. Each topic after will premiere every Friday at 11:30 AM UTC.

Though National Cyber Security month will be over as this begins, the importance of securing your cloud and hybrid resources never decreases. Below are the list of topics and dates for Part 1 of the series. I have aligned these topics with those included within the Azure Security Engineer Associate exam.

Part 2 will premiere on February 5, 2021, and will focus on Microsoft/Office 365 security. I hope that you continue to enjoy and learn from these short weekly videos. Subscribe to the Captain Hyperscaler YouTube channel for playlists and videos from all of my events. Thank you very much.
