Date/Time: October 1, 2018, 6:00 PM to 8 PM EDT
Location: 80 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, ON

Have you ever wondered how security is different ‘in the cloud’? Where do you store your certificates? Your keys? Your connection strings? How can you see what’s going on with your resources? How do you patch? Where can you see your server configs other important information? How do you manage an security incident? How do you even know that you’re having an incident?

This first half of this workshop will be a demo where the audience follows along, the second part will be for audience members to build things and secure them, in Azure.

Demo will include:
• Complete Azure Security Centre walkthrough
• Policy and compliance, including subscription coverage
• Resource Security Hygiene
• Azure Security Centre Recommendations (mitigation of one or more items, dependent on time)
• Threat Protection, Alerts and Threats
• Applying System Updates
• Key Vault

Audience Participation
