The Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention Ninja Training is here!


We are very excited and pleased to announce this rendition of the Ninja Training Series. With all the other training out there, our team has been working diligently to get this content out there. There are several videos and resources out there and the overall purpose of the Microsoft Purview Data Loss Prevention Ninja training is to help you master this realm. We aim to get you up-to-date links to the community blogs, training videos, Interactive Guides, learning paths, and any other relevant documentation. 


To make it easier for you to start and advance your knowledge gradually without throwing you in deep waters, we split content in each offering into three levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.  


Please find the Microsoft Purview Information Protection Ninja Training here.


In addition, after each section, there will be a knowledge check based on the training material you’d have just finished! Since there’s a lot of content, the goal of these knowledge checks is to help you determine if you were able to get a few of the major key takeaways.  


There’ll be a fun certificate issued at the end of the training: Disclaimer: This is NOT an official Microsoft certification and only acts as a way of recognizing your participation in this training content. 


Lastly, this training will be updated one to two times a year to ensure you all have the latest and greatest material!
