SC-900 Study Guide: Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals

This SC-900 Study Guide has been updated with the January 28, 2022 exam objectives

The SC-900 exam is the only exam needed to get the Microsoft Certified: Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals, and an optional exam in the Security, Compliance, and Identity path. This certification is targeted to those looking to familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of security, compliance, and identity (SCI) across cloud-based and related Microsoft services. This is a broad audience that may include business stakeholders, new or existing IT professionals, or students who have an interest in Microsoft security, compliance, and identity solutions. Candidates should be familiar with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 and want to understand how Microsoft security, compliance, and identity solutions can span across these solution areas to provide a holistic and end-to-end solution.

In this SC-900 Study Guide, I will share both free and paid options, whether books, video training or simply links to articles and blog posts. I will not share any dumps as those are against the Microsoft Terms of Service, and by using dumps, we decrease the value of our certifications.

SC-900 Books

Many people still prefer books to study, and this is why Microsoft still does the Exam Ref series! Books are sometimes a bit late on the exam objectives – so always check when the book was published and if any major changes have been made to the objectives.
