New certification for Security Architects
Published Apr 07 2022 09:00 AM 27.5K Views

We are looking for Microsoft cybersecurity architects to take our new beta exam. Microsoft cybersecurity architects have subject matter expertise in designing and evolving the cybersecurity strategy to protect an organization’s mission and business processes across all aspects of the enterprise architecture. They design a Zero Trust strategy and architecture, including security strategies for data, applications, access management, identity, and infrastructure. They also evaluate Governance Risk Compliance (GRC) technical strategies and security operations strategies.


Cybersecurity architects continuously collaborate with leaders and practitioners in IT security, privacy, and other roles across an organization to plan and implement a cybersecurity strategy that meets the business needs of an organization.

If this is your skill set, we have a new certification for you. The   certification validates your expertise in this area and offers you the opportunity to prove your skills. To earn this certification, pass SC-100: Microsoft Cybersecurity Architect exam (currently in beta) as well as any one of the following: SC-200, SC-300, AZ-500, OR MS-500.


Is this the right certification for you?

This certification could be a great fit if you have significant experience in a wide range of security engineering areas including identity and access, platform protection, security operations, securing data and securing applications. You should also have experience with hybrid and cloud implementations.
