Hi, all!
I want to thank you so much for your interest in Microsoft security. I don’t think a day ever goes by that I’m not thankful for this community, but it’s always good and healthy to say it. And I think it’s probably good to hear it, too.
So, thank you all for your engagement, participation, and continued interest.
I hope you had a good week. In the U.S., we have a 3-day weekend that ends in the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, and I am looking forward to the extra time to relax and reflect.
If you missed Microsoft Build this week, you missed something cool that was announced.
Who Hacked? is a cloud game from Microsoft Learn, which is a way to gamify learning security and how to use Microsoft security products to identify and react to threats. This is a fun romp!
Here’s the trailer: https://cda.ms/4kL

Incidentally, we also talked about it on the Microsoft Security Insights show on Wednesday night if you want to catch it there.
If you’re looking for yet another way to show your support for KQL, there’s a new piece of merch in the Must Learn KQL store. Many of you should appreciate this.
It’s the “KQL is the New PowerShell” T-shirt and hoodie.
As with everything, all profit goes to St. Jude.
Identifying Business-Critical Cloud Data Resources
Today, Microsoft Defender for Cloud includes the ability to discover and protect cloud data resources for both structured and unstructured data types using Defender for Storage and Defender for Databases.
Our goal is to identify the business-critical data resources, including the organization’s valuable data, to help security administrators focus on first protecting what has a more significant business impact.
We would appreciate your time and input on this short survey to ensure our product will align with your needs.
That’s it for me for this week. I hope you all have an awesome weekend.
Talk soon.
