Jeremy Rasmussen
Session: Insane in the Mainframe: Taking Control of Azure Security
Everybody’s moving to the cloud these days. If you’re not already on Office365/Azure, odds are you’re considering it. But what are the security implications of doing this versus rolling your own thing on-premises? As a security consultant and architect, Jeremy set out to learn more about the Microsoft Azure security framework. After reading 700+ pages of documentation and consulting on a number of cloud security projects, he has now attained cloud enlightenment — the tl;dr version of which he’ll present in this talk. In particular, he’ll cover the following:
* How Azure identity & access management work
* How Azure data access control & encryption work
* How Azure virtualization, isolation, firewalls, logging & monitoring work
* Best practices you should take for dealing with Azure security
CTO and Cybersecurity Director of Abacode, Tampa, FL

and founder of the USF Whitehatters Computer Security Club (WCSC)

Ayo Adegoke
Session: Azure Security or ML Track
Abstract: The rapid uptake of cloud and mobile technology has led to complexity, sprawl and security vulnerabilities. Organizations want to achieve the full benefits of the cloud by connecting all stakeholders. Identity and Access Management is therefore imperative for cloud adoption.

Identity helps reduce IT complexity and sprawl across users, devices, applications and third parties. Legacy Identity and Access Management Offerings solve a narrower range of use cases, frequently costly, difficult to use and challenging to integrate. This presentation focuses on how modern Identity solutions, like Azure AD, provide a more robust Identity solution across the modern On-premise and/or Cloud (hybrid) Enterprise.
