What we're about

We feel Azure security just doesn't get enough love. All that sexy DevSecOps, automation, config drift detection and event driven response stuff just seem far away from Azure.

So this meetup group is to give Azure some love, share our learning, tricks and pains.

If you are using Azure, you are planning to use Azure, you've never heard of Azure, you prefer Azure as a colour, you are a security dude/gal, you are an architect, you are a cloud nerd or you just feel like getting involved - you are welcome.

For each meetup event, we will try to accommodate different palates and arrange speakers/topics with combination of high level Azure GRC (some say fluffy) stuff as well as low level (some say hardcore) security deep dives.

We will also consolidate the Q&A at the end of all 3 presentations and give our sponsor airtime to talk about what they do.

All in all, you should be expecting good honest talks, information sharing and a bit of chat with like-minded people over a beverage.

Azure Purview - The future of Data Governance

Online event

In this session to kickstart 2022, we will be hearing from the talented Richard Lee.

Azure Purview - The future of Data Governance

Since going GA last year, Azure Purview has been getting widespread traction from Enterprises right across the globe enabling organisations to unlock insights from their data and returning efficiencies back to the business. So, why is there so much interest?

As the proliferation of data has accelerated over the past years, the need for Data Governance has become more evident and Purview's unique position to offer a differentiated product to other tools in the market has gained interest from a broad number of organisations.

In this session, we will see both a presentation and a demo of Purview.

- What is Purview, the key tenants it aligns too, the vision
- Data Catalog including classifications, sensitivity labels
- Business glossary
- Data Map including data sources, security
- Enhanced integration features with Azure-based tools (Synapse, Power BI, SQL Server 2022, Microsoft Information Protection)
- Policy-based security
- Where do we see Purview going next?
