Improve landing zone security

When a workload or the landing zones that hosts it require access to any sensitive data or critical systems, it's important to protect the data and assets. Improving landing zone security builds on the test-driven development approach to landing zones by expanding or refactoring the landing zone to account for heightened security requirements.

Landing zone security best practices

The following list of reference architectures and best practices provides examples of ways to improve landing zone security:

Test-driven development cycle

Before beginning any security improvements, it's important to understand the "definition of done" and all "acceptance criteria". For more information, see the articles on test-driven development of landing zones and test-driven development in Azure.
