What we'll do

Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce our next Azure Thames Valley event on Tuesday 26th March (6:30 pm start).

We hope you're as excited about forthcoming meetup as we are, and looking forward to seeing you all there...

Lightning talk: Azure Authentication

A quick overview of different authentication mechanisms available on Azure with their pros and cons explained

Main talk: Security in an age of Collaboration by Alan Eardley

In this modern age of collaboration, it is important for content to be secure. Moving content to the cloud opens it up for easier access, but also allows sophisticated authentication and auditing to be used to secure the content more robustly.

This session explores a real-life scenario that focuses on using Azure B2B, conditional access and SharePoint Online to allow external parties to access collaboration sites with appropriate permissions, replacing the traditional extranet solution. We will go through multi-factor authentication and access reviews to demonstrate the governance and control of the external users as well.

Alan is a solution architect with over 20 years of experience delivering transformational solutions to clients. He is passionate about Microsoft 365 and Azure, and the benefits they bring to end users and organisations through innovative solutions to business challenges.

His particular areas of interest are collaboration, security and ease of use for end users.
