Ensuring Compliance with Azure Policies

In this lab, you will assume the role of an Azure security engineer. A common task asked of the Azure security engineer is to ensure compliance of Azure resources. In this hands-on lab, we will assign two Azure policies. Then, we will deploy a non-compliant resource and observe the results of the policy assigned.

  1. Challenge

    Assign Azure Policies

    • Assign a policy to block the deployment of resource groups when a Cost Allocation tag is not provided.
      • Assign the policy to the resource group for the hands-on lab.
      • Optionally provide a non-compliance message for your first policy assignment.
    • Assign a policy to inherit the Cost Allocation tag from the parent resource group when the tag is not present on a resource.
      • Associate the existing user-assigned managed identity with your policy assignment.

    Create and Update Resources

    • Deploy a new Virtual Network named PolicyVnet2 in the same region as the existing resources.
      • Do not provide a cost allocation tag during provisioning; Azure Policy should inherit the tag from the resource group.
