I may be wrong as Defender is disabled on my machine. I believe if you right click on the icon and open settings.
Also you can go to Settings > Personalization > Taskbar. Near the bottom of the page, you can select which icons appear on the taskbar.

Both the title and the text of your first post said you wanted to disable the icon.
Are you asking how to disable the program? Install a top tier 3rd party security suite. That will generally do it.
