Early dip into using Azure Sentinel and Fusion

Microsoft have recently announced their cloud-native SEIM tool with built in AI capabilities with a public preview now available. It certainly feels fresh out of the oven as documentation around the product is still lightweight (but being added to at a rapid rate!) and not a lot of collateral just yet around the mechanics of how one should leverage this tool.
