Lets meet for a night all about Azure Security!


• 18:10 Welcome from the Azure Zurich User Group (Manu Meyer) & Meet-and-Greet

• 18:30 Talk 1: Azure Security 101 (Ivano Somaini)

In summer 2018 Microsoft announced to offer their cloud solutions out of the Swiss data centers. Following that, a lot of local SMB and big companies decided to migrate to Microsoft Azure.

Using the Microsoft Azure Cloud, any company can create and publish web applications with little effort. Due to this fact, critical security vulnerabilities can be built into your own infrastructure very quickly.
The fast pace in which Azure functionalities are added increases the complexity and makes it hard to keep a security overview.

Ivano got to know cloud solutions in well over 100 conducted security assessments and he also inspected the tools and services that will support YOU to securely operate Azure. In this session, we will dive into Azure Security Center, Azure Resource Graph, Azure AzSK, Azure Policy and Azure Blueprints.

Ivano Somaini was already interested in IT Security during his youth and studied the topic further during his IT studies at ETH Zurich with a focus on information security. During his studies he deepened his knowledge in topics such as cryptography protocols, network security and e-privacy. His master thesis deals with the theoretical aspects of security. Ivano modeled and verified the cryptographic protocol Kerberos.
