Next week, I’m joining many of my technical friends at the Hybrid Identity Protection Conference in New York, NY.
For those who attended The Experts Conference (TEC) and NetPro’s Directory Experts Conference (DEC) events previously, the Hybrid Identity Protection Conference promises to be at least as much fun as these events, where you’ve seen the likes of Gil Kirkpatrick, Sean Deuby, Darren Mar-Elia, Brian Desmond, Joe Kaplan and Jorge de Almeida Pinto.
About the Hybrid Identity Protection Conference
The Hybrid Identity Protection Conference is Semperis Inc.’s event in the spirit of The Expert Conference (TEC) to bring together the leading experts in the field of Identity and Access Management. The event offers a unique opportunity to spend two days on-site in New York with peers, whose day-to-day job is to architect, manage, and protect identity management in the hybrid enterprise.
Attendees are able to meet face-to-face with the leading experts of their field, acquire in-depth technical knowledge, and be exposed to the latest innovation.
The 2017 Hybrid Identity Protection Conference takes place on November 6th and November 7th at the famous 7 World Trade Center in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood. Just minutes' walk from famous landmarks, attractions, museums, and famous restaurants in Manhattan, and with astounding views of the New York skyline.
About my presentations
I’m delivering three presentations at the inaugural Hybrid Identity Protection Conference. With pride, I’m co-presenting two of my presentations with Roelf Zomerman, the only Dutch Active Directory Microsoft Certified Master (MCM):
Virtualizing Domain Controllers in Hyper-V and Azure
Monday November 6th 2017 3:40PM – 4:40PM
Active Directory Domain Controllers hold the keys to your kingdom. So how do you virtualize these castles of identity, without compromising on the requirements of your organization?
In this session I share my best practices for hardening, backing up, restoring and managing virtualized Domain Controllers on both Hyper-V, Azure Stack and in Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service VMs, from the field, The information is based on the latest version of Azure and Windows Server 2016, like Shielded VMs, but will also show how the functionality of Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 already allow for risk mitigation and availability, too, so you don't have to upgrade everything immediately, if you can't.
Azure AD Connect, The Dutch Connection
Tuesday November 7th 10AM – 11AM
With businesses adopting more cloud, how do you cope with the new identity challenges? How do you properly design and implement Hybrid Identity in real-world scenarios?
In this first of two demo-packed sessions, two Dutchmen, Sander Berkouwer (Microsoft MVP) and Roelf Zomerman (Microsoft Cloud Solution Architect), explain the ins and outs of Azure AD Connect, the Microsoft’s free Hybrid Identity “bridge” product.
Learn about the history of Azure AD Connect and why and what it does. See authentication scenarios supported by Azure AD Connect and how Azure AD Connect brings your colleagues and their devices to the cloud. You’ll receive useful tips and tricks to apply in your organization.
Azure AD Connect, The World is not Enough
Tuesday November 7th 11:30AM – 12:45AM
Join Roelf Zomerman (Microsoft Cloud Solution Architect) and Sander Berkouwer (Microsoft MVP) for the second session in their Azure AD Connect series, where they open the door to the world behind complex Hybrid Identity architectures. (And to people who didn’t attend the first session, of course.)
Like the Dutch explored the world, they explore the world of complex identity scenarios in multi-forest environments and alternate ImmutableID situations. Find out where errors come from and how to resolve them while we sail through the inner workings of the Azure AD Connect tool.
We'll share the things you didn’t think were possible with Azure AD Connect, and dive deep into the tools. Are you looking to handle multi-forest scenarios, change the immutable ID or juggle with Azure AD Connects synchronization rules to cope with increasing business requirements, without losing your Microsoft support? This is your go-to session!
For me, with the Global MVP Summit moved from the November timeframe to March, this is the opportunity to hang out with these guys and I’m looking forward to it!
