Exploring Security and Compliance in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business by Bill Baer

In this session we'll explore SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business security and compliance capabilities with demonstrations across our driving principles and core tenets of the products.

In today's volatile economic climate, organizations require collaboration, communication, and productivity solutions to be both cost-effective and flexible. SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business can help businesses achieve new levels of reliability and performance, delivering features and capabilities that simplify administration, protect communications and information, and empower users while meeting their demands for greater business mobility. However, data loss is non-negotiable, and overexposure to information can have legal and compliance implications. In SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business we're providing a broad array of features and capabilities designed to make certain that sensitive information remains that way, and to ensure that the right people have access to the right information at the right time.

Bill Baer is a Senior Technical Product Manager and Microsoft Certified Master for SharePoint in the SharePoint product group at Microsoft Corporation in Redmond, Washington; previously a Hewlett-Packard Technology Solutions Group MVP with a background in infrastructure engineering and enterprise deployments of SharePoint Products and Technologies.

Bill Baer has deep industry experience having worked for Apple Computer Corporation, First Data Corporation, Digital Equipment Corporation, Compaq Computer Corporation, Hewlett-Packard, and Microsoft Corporation.

SharePoint Infrastructure for cloud & on-prem deployments by Jared Shockley

Are you an IT Pro but the world of SharePoint infrastructure is a confusing world?
Are you a SharePoint developer and want your engineering environments to look like a production one without a lot of expense?
Are you a SharePoint user and want to know what is going on under the hood of SharePoint to host it?

This session will help IT Pros, developers and users how SharePoint should be hosted for the best results. We will go over how SharePoint utilizes all of the infrastructure of servers and Windows, the specific implementation of SharePoint on its infrastructure, how to architect the best possible farm for SharePoint and how you can use newer technologies like virtualization and the cloud for hosting SharePoint. While the primary focus is on SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2016 will be covered as well talking about the future of SharePoint hosting.

Jared Shockley is a 21 year veteran of the IT field working with both small business to large enterprise companies. As of January 2014, he rejoined Microsoft IT in Service Engineering building and improving on-prem SharePoint services as a Senior Service Engineer and later added the role of Service Owner. Prior to this return, his diverse career included delivering IT operations and solutions to mid-size healthcare organization, data center operations, business and systems consulting, web development, and enterprise-focused IT operations management. His areas of knowledge and experience center around web and data systems primarily with IIS, ASP.Net, SharePoint, and SQL Server. Lately, he has been adding Azure cloud services to his repertoire. Along with his role with Service Engineering, he regularly speaks with Microsoft internal employees and customers on the subject of SharePoint Best Practices through the IT Showcase team.
