So, you have built your Conditional Access rules and everything is working stable and as expected.

We all make mistakes, so do I! It’s what makes us human! Making a mistake is an opportunity to learn! After the success of the “My 10 biggest Azure mistakes I want you to learn from” session, I took it to the next level, by interviewing 100+ Azure professionals from Belgium.

In this session, I want to share the biggest Azure mistakes that I’ve captured during these interviews and most importantly: how you can avoid to make the same mistakes yourself! We’ll cover a broad range of Azure services and areas. Join me in this session if you want to learn from real stories from the field!

21h00 – 21h50: Endpoint Defense Unleashed: Safeguarding Your Business with Microsoft 365 Defender by Koenraad Haedens (Technical Trainer at Microsoft)

“Endpoint Defense Unleashed: Safeguarding Your Business with Microsoft 365 Defender” is a session that provides an in-depth look at how Microsoft 365 Defender can help organizations protect their endpoints from cyber threats.

Endpoints are one of the most common targets for cyber attacks, and organizations need to have a robust defense strategy in place to protect against these threats. In this session, attendees will learn how Microsoft 365 Defender can help them safeguard their business by providing a comprehensive set of endpoint security features.

The session will cover key topics such as endpoint detection and response (EDR), threat and vulnerability management, and attack surface reduction. Attendees will learn how these features work together to provide a multi-layered defense against cyber threats, such as malware, ransomware, and phishing attacks.

The session will also cover best practices for configuring and using Microsoft 365 Defender’s endpoint security features, as well as tips for integrating endpoint security with other Microsoft 365 Defender features, such as identity and access management and information protection.

By the end of this session, attendees will have a better understanding of how Microsoft 365 Defender can help them secure their endpoints and protect against cyber threats, and will have practical takeaways that they can apply to their own organizations.
