Passwords are a Pain – Take your first steps towards a Passwordless Future

Speakers: Ken Goossens and Tim de Keukelaere
Date: Monday, May 17, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Stage: Stage 4

Passwords are a pain. They have to be complex, remain secret and changed often. As a result passwords are often forgotten and/or reused for different purposes. The end result is more support tickets and weaker security. The future is passwordless and now is the time to take the first step. In this session we will show how Windows Hello for Business can be used to introduce a manageable and strong two-factor authentication approach in your organization and how you can make the first step towards a passwordless future.

Zero Trust Networking – Cloud Apps beyond Perimeter Security

Speaker: Rainer Stropek
Date: Monday, May 17, 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Stage: Stage 8

In the past, organizations invested lots of time and money in perimeter security solutions that should keep bad people out of their corporate network. Inside, all were friends, and security measurements not as strict. In the cloud, things have changed. Given the powerful PaaS platforms that modern cloud providers offer, it is possible to build and run enterprise applications in the public cloud and use the Internet as one's corporate network. In this session, Rainer Stropek talks about the principles of Zero Trust Networking. He will spend a large part of the talk building sample solutions in the Azure cloud speaking about what services Azure provides particularly in the context of Zero Trust Networking (e.g. VNets, AAD, Managed Identities, Private Endpoints, Managed Certificates, etc.).

Azure AD App Consents – A New Way Hackers are using to get Access. Gain Back Control Now!

Speaker: Pim Jacobs
Date: Monday, May 17 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
Stage: Stage 4

Using and securing applications and service principals in Azure AD is becoming more important and more relevant every day! Where organizations are massively rolling out multi-factor authentication hackers are trying to find new ways to get access, this by asking the user to provide an app consent for access to highly sensitive data the user is able to access. During the first part of this session you will learn how you can prevent end users to give consents to (malicious) applications via the Azure AD. Get back in control as an IT admin by approving access to only those applications you’ve reviewed and therefore are trusted to access your company data! In the second part of this session you will learn what a service principal is, how to create a service principal based on least access privileges and how you can make use of that in regards to automation with some live demo’s.

If you ever had to deal with identity within your solutions then this is the workshop for you. Join JP and Christos to find out how to get started with authentication and authorization for your applications using the Microsoft Identity platform. We will show you how to set up your Identity Provider in Azure and then use our libraries with your favorite language to quickly connect and authenticate users in a few, basic steps. At the end of this workshop, you will be able to use the Microsoft Identity Platform to create scalable and secure applications.

Decentralized Identity

Speaker: John Craddock
Date: Tuesday, May 18 11:30 AM -12:30 PM
Stage: Stage 9

Take a moment to count up how many identities you have for accessing work and social resources. Probably included in your list will be Office 365, Amazon, Gmail, your corporate network, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and many more¦ Who controls those identities? Not you! In today’s world we are forced to entrust multiple organizations with holding our identity, in many cases, secured by only a username and password. How would it be, if YOU, were in sole control of your identity and not relying on multiple organizations protect it for you? Come to this session and you learn how multiple organizations are working towards the future with proposals and open standards for decentralized identity (DID). Organizations will no longer own identity, you will be in control. This self-owned identity will integrate seamlessly into your daily live and give you complete control of the information you share and who you share it with. Discover the future of identity systems, a session not to be missed!
