18h30 – 18u45: Welcome

18h45 – 19u30: Cloud Security Posture Management with Azure Security Center and Workload Protection with Azure Defender by Yuri Diogenes (Principal Program Manager at Microsoft).
While there is a big investment in threat detection across the security industry, the reality is that many studies have shown that security hygiene is still the number one reason that organizations get compromised. This means that visibility and control over your cloud workloads’ security posture is an imperative measure to reduce the likelihood that attackers will exploit misconfigurations and known vulnerabilities in your environment. In this talk, we will discuss how Azure Security Center (ASC) can be utilized to provide visibility and control over different workloads in Azure. From preventative remediations of security recommendations, to the utilization of secure score as your main KPI to drive security posture management, ASC provides a set of capabilities that are target for Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) scenario and also Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) with Azure Defender.

19h30 – 20h15: Achieving SOC Operational Efficiency for Azure Sentinel Hunting by Rod Trent (Cybersecurity CE and SME for Azure Sentinel at Microsoft).
Many SOCs have developed their security team processes around legacy tools. These processes have sometimes resulted in habits that are difficult to break when modernizing security using a cloud-based security tool like Azure Sentinel. Utilizing Azure Sentinel’s efficiency economy is a point that is often overlooked and as SOCs become more interested in migrating to Azure Sentinel exposing this area can lead to huge efficiency gains and help security teams minimize the number of manual processes.
This session will focus on the unique value that Azure Sentinel provides to help customers modernize their operations by taking advantage of streamlining capabilities that have been intentionally and mindfully integrated into the product. This is not a feature-by-feature Sentinel demo, but a discussion on how Azure Sentinel allows SOCs to think differently and improve their overall security operations.

20h15 – 20h25: Break

20h25 – 21h15: Modernize risk management with the latest threat and vulnerability management capabilities by Heike Ritter (Senior Program Manager at Microsoft).
Modernize your threat and vulnerability management program with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint and maximize your security posture. Join this session to shadow a day in the life of a modern security analyst and to see how organizations continually detect vulnerabilities and protect against the latest emergent threats.

21h15 – 22h00: Entering a new era of cybersecurity with Microsoft Threat Protection by Michael Van Horenbeeck (Microsoft MVP Azure).
Not a day goes by without news of one or the other breach, data leak or ransomware attack. The current cybersecurity landscape forces defenders to rethink how to protect, detect and respond to threats. In this session we’ll explain why Microsoft Threat Protection matters, and how to get most of it.

22h00 – 23h00: Social BYOB (Bring-Your-Own-Beer) teams meeting
