Pen-Test Like an IT Superhero
So you've had a "Pen–Test" done, and you're good, right? Wrong. One of the biggest pitfalls of security is becoming complacent. Continual pen–testing is mandatory for any company that wants to avoid being the latest trending story for being hacked. The purpose of this session is to give you a brief and basic overview of what to look for when starting out in penetration testing and to build up an internal penetration test kit. This will help you perform both internal and external penetration tests on your company network.

You will learn:

• The need for "continual" penetration testing

• How to create a checklist of things to test and how to test

• About changing the viewer's perspective and thinking like an attacker when it comes to apps, services, and devices

Azure Automation and OMS: Better Together
Many users have looked at Azure Automation as almost isolated Azure service and wanted better integration with OMS. They wanted Automation runbooks to become a part of OMS solutions, and better logging withing Log Analytics for Automation tasks. The days of waiting are over. We can know get OMS solutions created by Microsoft based on Automation runbooks and DSC configurations (or we can create our own, custom solutions). With announced support for Bash and Python runbooks, it's very clear that the position of Azure Automation has changed and it's now a foundational capability required to deliver end to end management across hybrid clouds running Windows Server and Linux.

ATA to Z
Nowadays the topic of cyber-security has moved from IT and the datacenter to the highest levels of the boardroom. Attacks and threats have evolved significantly and have grown substantially in frequency and severity. Research shows attackers reside within a network undetected for months and stay below the radar of the IT security department. In many of those attacks, attackers compromise user credentials and use legitimate IT tools rather than malware to reach their objectives. In this session, we deep dive into Microsoft's security product addition to the EMS Suite: Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) . ATA helps to uncover and identify security breaches before any damage is actually caused. Learn how to design and implement ATA and see it in action using some real world examples.

My personal story from Azure IT Pro to Azure DevOps
For several months now, at every customer or partner where I talk about Azure cloud adoption, they point to “DevOps”. So it got me wondering what they mean with it. Is it a technology, is it a business / IT process? Is it (another one??) new fluffy word for our IT admins? Well, it’s a bit of all of that, and in this session, I will explain you how, and most important why, I started to become an “Azure DevOps” guy myself, knowing I’m a deep-technical IT Pro, without any development skills. In this session, I will share my personal experience on how I found out in my own job role, I had to start turning to the Dev-side, to optimize my job. And knowing I’m mainly working with cloud technology, I will explain you by doing several live demos, on where Visual Studio (yes, the MS development tool…) can become your prime tool of administration when deploying and building Azure Cloud Resources, PowerShell scripts and more of that fun stuff. Lastly, I will end my session by demonstrating cool integrations of Visual Studio with Azure Active Directory to integrate authentication to your non-authentication aware web apps, and how Visual Studio can help in using version control and deploying (web) apps to different platforms like testing / staging / production.

Journey to the Cloud – True stories

The current 4th industrial revolution is a fast paced, ever changing mix of being “always connected”, cloud-born MSP’s, hyperscale cloud-providers,data lakes, Analytics, IoT, etc..

Excellent news for those companies that have already adopted the cloud and are ready to go for a cloud-first strategy.

Even better news for ISVs that suddenly see opportunities to provide SAAS-alternatives for their software and as such can sell outside the traditional regional boundaries to markets they couldn’t reach before.

The hurdles these organizations meet while transforming their way of doing business are however equally challenging: new skillsets (cloud architects, Cloud tuning, hybrid architectures, devops, networking), different go2market, the need for service management, productization of their solutions, etc…

This session will explain this (r)evolution and will be referring to real cases of Altogee customers having been or still going through this transformation.

 

If you are an Architect wanting to go beyond the technology, an IT Pro anxious to dive into Devops or a Developer at the verge of continuous release/deployment…this is your session.

“Pwning” Yourself with PowerShell
We all know that PowerShell is the latest and greatest when it comes to managing your systems, but the real power comes from understanding how “attackers” can and are taking this framework to create amazing tools and then using these tools against your infrastructure. From discovering and inventorying all your systems to totally pwning your systems, yes we can even bypass your “remote execution policies”. We’ll talk about how to implement your own penetration test against yourself using PowerShell so that you can start to see the new techniques and tools being using against your networks.

You'll learn and understand how “attackers” are using this built-in framework against you to

o Discovery systems

o See what hardware and software they’re running

o Map out the domain(s)

o Pwn a system and then the domain

A cloud secure enough for a bank - how we designed their Azure environment
A large Swedish bank has gone from "cloud? no!" to "cloud? hell yeah!". With no previous implementations in Microsoft Azure we had the opportunity to greenfield their solution and met with IT security, information security, network, management and IT people. Using all the building blocks available in Azure we then came up with solutions for securing their identites, securing their assets in Azure and making sure their information is kept secure.

Today they are hosting three different workloads and applications in Azure and more are on their way.

Leaving this session you'll know more about securing identities in Azure Active Directory, giving and revoking access to resources in Azure using RBAC, creating / version controlling / deploying templates using Azure Resource Manager and Visual Studio. We'll take a look at the most common arguments against using cloud services and how we got around them. I'll throw in some Azure Security Center, OMS and encrypted virtual machines too just for fun!
