Session: Enter The Matrix: Securing Azure’s assets

In the cloud no one can hear you scream… or can they? Even though Microsoft has a tremendous army of gadgets in place for defending your environments, sometimes you need that additional little thing. The goal of the session is to provide you some guidance and an overview of Azure’s security measures, either out of the box activated or the additional ones you can foresee. Next to that you’ll get an idea on how to monitor and react to threats that have been noticed or unnoticed. Expect some PowerShell, Azure architecture, and service tweaks which can help you settle at ease in your new condominium with panic room.
