Sami's sessions were evaluated as the #1 and #2 Best Session at Microsoft Ignite 2018 so you can rest assured that you will learn a lot and have fun while doing it! Sponsor Session: Software Vulnerability Management - Stop reacting. Gain control. Stay secure. The world shifted to a paradigm that accepts that breaches will inevitably happen and they need to be detected and responded to in a more efficient fashion. However, the need and cost-effectiveness of prevention is still a reality that organizations have not been able to master, and application vulnerabilities remain at the top of security professionals concerns. With more than 50 new vulnerabilities disclosed every day in commercial software, it’s hard to stay focused and be effective. When you add vulnerabilities being introduced in the code being written in-house, the task just becomes unfeasible. Join us for this talk about how visibility, curation, prioritization and automation kick in for security, operations and engineering to work together towards a more secure software supply chain. Session 2: Securing Windows in 2020+ In year 2019 the number of malware per day did not increase for the first time in years. On the other hand the amount of money lost because of malware and security breaches more than doubled. The biggest threat to people is currently ransomware, cryptominers and loss of credentials. Join this session to hear one of the world’s leading security professionals, Sami Laiho, give his predictions on security in 2020 and forward, and what Windows can do to protect you in the all the time evolving cybersecurity landscape.

- Windows Management User Group Netherlands - Meeting #5 2019
Program of the Meetup: • 16:00 – 16:30 Reception and welcome by OGD • 16:30 – 17:30 Session 1: Patrick van den Born, Identity and Access Management with Ivanti • 17:30 – 18:15 Session 2: Sander Berkouwer, Azure AD Connect; Hoe vond je zelf dat ’t ging? • 18:15 – 19:15 Food, provided by OGD • 19:15 – 20:15 Session 3: Erwin Derksen, Azure Active Directory Domain Services, the substitute for your local AD? • 20:15 – 21:15 drinks provided by OGD Session 1: Patrick van den Born, Identity and Access Management with Ivanti Abstract: In the world where information and applications are consumed from the cloud, Identity and Access manages to become increasingly important. In addition to protecting the identity, for example by means of Identity Protection or Conditional Access, it is important to integrate the on and off boarding of identities with the on and off process of your company. This prevents an employee who is out of service, and whose accounts are still active, still having access to company data in the cloud. In this session Patrick will explain how an identity and access management project can be carried out with the help of Ivanti Identity Director and Ivanti Automation. In addition to the technical part, Patrick will also discuss the process part and how you can approach such a project. Real-life scenarios are also displayed. In addition to Identity Management, a part of Self Service will also be discussed with which repetitive help desk reports can be automated. Session 2: Sander Berkouwer, Azure AD Connect; How did you think it went? Abstract: 20 million organizations worldwide use Azure AD. The majority of them use Azure AD Connect to synchronize the on-premises Active Directory environment with Azure AD. An organization can realize this in four clicks, but what exactly do you get? And is that sufficient? In this session Sander shows the ultimate possibilities of Azure AD Connect. Opportunities that until recently were not possible, but are certainly worthwhile for many organizations. In addition, Sander shares the experiences of his team, so that you can take the tips, tricks, do's and especially the don's with you to your own (or future) implementations of Azure AD Connect. Session 3: Erwin Derksen, Azure Active Directory Domain Services, the substitute for your local AD? Abstract: Azure Active Directory Domain is positioned as the cloud version of your old school AD Domain Controllers in premises. Meant to make the transition to the cloud, even if you have those applications that require a traditional AD. In this session I will show you what AAD Domain Services is, what you can do with it, how to implement is and how it works. I will also share my real-world-experience with AAD DS.
