🛡️M365 Defender

This is my attempt on writing and learning about Microsoft Defender. I’ve been meaning to write about this since some time now and I guess this is the best time to do that as the importance of Security has been recognized than ever.

To start things off the main focus of the series is Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (MDE) as that has many features to talk about and many more are added literally everyday.

I would also like to focus on KQL (Kusto Query Language) as that is becoming the norm and able to provide more insights to Security admins.

I hope this series will be informative and will help you to learn something new.
