SC-900 Study Guide

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

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 Video Training

NOTE: Pluralsight is a paid resource unlike YouTube and Microsoft Learn which are free. The quality they provide is also superior because of all the quality checks they go through, and the instructors are one of the best in the industry. The Pluralsight courses have a link to where you can get a free trial and decide for yourself if paying a subscription or not is worth it, but the 10-day free trial should allow you to view all those courses for free.
