According to industry predictions, almost six ransomware attacks will occur every minute in 2021.  

 

The growing prominence and frequency of cybersecurity incidents—more than 10 debilitating ransomware attacks made headlines in the first half of 2021 alone—highlights the need for the recent Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity. Per the order, federal civilian agencies must provide updated plans for adopting cloud technology and implementing a Zero Trust Architecture in July. To help meet this immediate need, Microsoft is providing resources and training for learners across the U.S. government 

 

In addition to accessing self-paced training modules focused on cybersecurity, you can also find technical content relevant for your security needs and explore cybersecurity reference architectures that outline how Microsoft security capabilities integrate with leading platforms and applications.  

 

Finally, learn more about how Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity certifications can help you advance your career, earn recognition, and validate your technical skills.
