Securing IT Against Modern Threats with Microsoft Cloud Security Tools

Track: SecurityLevel: 300

Organizations today are facing unprecedented and sophisticated attacks to their internal Information Technology infrastructure. These evolving attacks include cryptojacking, spear phishing, credential hijacking, and more and can result in significant data loss and/or theft of confidential and valuable intellectual property. In response to these threats, Microsoft has released an array of tools such as Azure Sentinel, Cloud App Security, Azure Advanced Threat Protection, and more which can help to secure and protect against these threats. These tools work with both On-Premises and cloud-based infrastructure to provide for comprehensive protection of hybrid environments.

This session breaks down each of these Microsoft tools and provides for an understanding of their value for specific security scenarios. A simple, no-marketing approach is taken to evaluating each individual tool, and a simple breakdown of what is provided with each Microsoft licensing model is outlined. Attendees will gain a better appreciation to which tools to utilize and how to better protect their Information Technology investments from the type of career-ending attacks which are unfortunately common today.

• Understand how modern threats such as cryptojacking, spear phishing, credential hijacking, and more are commonly faced in today’s IT environments and what tools and techniques can be used to mitigate the risk faced by these modern threats
• Examine Microsoft security tools such as Azure Sentinel, Azure Advanced Threat Protection, Azure Security Center, Cloud App Security, Azure AD Privileged Identity Management, Azure AD Identity Protection, Azure Information Protection, and more.
• Understand which tools are available for each licensing model in the Microsoft world and when it may make sense to ‘upgrade’ existing licenses to support specific toolsets as opposed to investment in third-party tools
