New Microsoft Security Certifications – SATV Eligible

As a manager for an IT training organization with a strong focus on cybersecurity (see our NIST Cybersecurity Framework training portfolio), I was excited to see so much attention on the announcement of new security certifications at the Microsoft Ignite conference last week!

Following are the four new certifications that were announced by Microsoft Learning. Instructor-led training is in development and expected to release in the next couple of months for most of these. The one-day MSSC-900T00: Microsoft Security, Compliance, and Identity Fundamentals course is ready and scheduled to be taught by our cybersecurity practitioner on April 19th!

The new training courses are aligned to the certifications and added to the Microsoft Software Assurance Training Voucher program … which means you can use your training vouchers for these courses through the end of 2021!
