in this video, we will look at the standard actual policies and initiatives.
I will switch to my browser and show you where you can find those policies and initiatives.
Here I am in National Portal.
As we said after a policy is a service in national. In order to get to it, you need to click on all services and search for policy.
I have already bookmarked this on my left hand navigation.
As you can see when I goto Usher policy, I can't even see some default policies that are applied. The reason that I see those here are because I have actual security center configure for my subscription.
The actual security center already apply certain policies, and I can get a dashboard to see what my compliance with those policies is. As you can see, right now, I have 97% compliance.
If you go on the left and click on definitions, you will see a list of all the policies that are available in your scope.
Those definitions include initiatives and policies, and those are from all types like building and custom. You can use the boxes on top toe filter by those Let's say if I want to see only initiatives I can filter by initiatives. If I want to see custom,
by the custom. I don't have any custom policies right now,
so let's go back toe all types and look at what definitions and policies us are available.
There is a list of hundreds and hundreds of policies and initiatives that are available in Azure.
For example, if your organization needs toe fold the PC, I compliance
their most probably, it's a policy about PC I. If you feel today, you will see that there is actually an initiative that contains 39 policies, and it targets a PC I audit. You can click on this initiative and you can see what is included in it.
Those are all the policies that are included in this initiative. Most of the time, those policies map toe the controls that PC I requires.
Let's go look out some other policies and initiatives. Let's say you're interested in. I saw 27,000 001 so there is a policy initiative
also of al, before that
it contains 58 policies.
Let's say you want a fall like C s benchmark recommendations for Usher.
There is initiative that includes 83 policies
that target the CIA's benchmark.
There are back policies, for example, so you can go and
to use toe track. The usage of custom are back Cruz, or also that there is a policy that and forces are back on kubernetes services. They are policies that are get virtual machines, Let's say v EMS and they are quite a few of those not only policies but initiatives.
So we have many initiatives
that target Windows machines us where Wesley knocks machines and they fall into a certain also initiatives,
got to get better and benchmarks and song
their policies related to the sequel server. If you search by sequel, you will see that there many policies that are applied that can be applied to sequel server like, for example, encryption, um,
authorization, authentication and so on and so on.
