Today I’m going to breakdown the second track in the Unlock The Tech series, Secure Your Business From Anywhere and try to pick out all the MUST KNOWS! from each session. So let’s get into everything Microsoft Security..
Did you know in the past year we’ve seen a 300% increase in identity attacks? making Cloud Endpoint Technical Specialist, Damien Sweeney’s session SO! relevant right now.
Azure Active Directory is the hero product in this session – a universal identity platform that helps you manage and secure all of your apps and users. Azure AD operates at a truly global scale, currently there are over 300K organizations using Azure AD with over 425M monthly active users and 30B+ daily authentication requests!!
So why are so many people putting their trust into Azure Active Directory?

On Day 2, Darryn O’brien Security, Compliance & Identity Specialist informs us that:
I think we can all agree that these figures are unsettling! In Microsoft our north star for our Information Protection and Governance solution is built around being able to provide you with a rich set of capabilities to:
across your devices, on-premises, and multi-cloud data locations from Microsoft and third parties.
My key takeaway for Security Specialist, Vanessa Carcedo’s sessions is: Not everything behind the corporate firewall is safe!
We no longer except to access corporate resources solely from the office or on company owned devices. Organisations now find themselves responsible for protecting a criss-crossing web of technology’s, many of which they do not own or manage. As these company’s digital footprints increase (so many different devices, user groups and SO much corporate data!) it is becoming abundantly clear that traditional perimeter based security models can’t keep up with the sophistication of today’s threats, neither can they provide the stability and controls they need to secure today’s highly distributed and hyper-mobile environments.
Which brought Vanessa onto Microsoft Defender , this helps defend against today’s increasingly complex and sophisticated attacks, empowering organizations’ defenders by putting the right tools and intelligence in the hands of the right people.
So how does it work?
Microsoft 365 Defender, part of Microsoft’s XDR solution, leverages the Microsoft 365 security portfolio to automatically analyze threat data across domains, building a complete picture of each attack in a single dashboard. With this breadth and depth of clarity defenders can now focus on critical threats and hunt for sophisticated breaches, trusting that the powerful automation in Microsoft 365 Defender detects and stops attacks anywhere in the kill chain and returns the organization to a secure state.

The final session of the week was delivered by Cloud Endpoint Technical Specialist, Damien Sweeney.
Throughout this track, all of the speakers have provided us with one clear consistent message “Technology needs are evolving in the Modern Workplace” >>>>>>>
