NOTE I HAVE UPDATED THIS POST FOR 2020- Preparing for the MS-500 Microsoft 365 Security Administration Exam (February 2020 Update)

The MS-500 Microsoft 365 Security Administration exam is currently available in beta, and as you can see if you scroll down, this exam expects you to have very broad exposure across the security capabilities of the Microsoft 365 E5 suite. This guide is effectively the fifth post in this series, and if you have already taken the exams listed below you will find that some of the preparation for those exam will help out here.

There’s a huge amount of content to work through in the links below, and I’ll publish an updated version once the exam goes live in order to incorporate any changes with the final exam.

Implement and manage identity and access (30-25%) (look at those numbers, not my typo!)

Implement and manage threat protection (20-25%)

Implement and manage information protection (15-20%)

Manage governance and compliance features in Microsoft 365 (25-30%)
