Securing IT Against Modern Threats with Office 365 and Microsoft Azure Security Tools

Speaker: Michael Noel

Organizations today are facing unprecedented and sophisticated attacks to their internal Information Technology infrastructure. These evolving attacks include cryptojacking, spear phishing, credential hijacking, and more and can result in significant data loss and/or theft of confidential and valuable intellectual property. In response to these threats, Microsoft has released an array of tools such as Azure Sentinel, Cloud App Security, Azure Advanced Threat Protection, and more which can help to secure and protect against these threats. These tools work with both On-Premises and cloud-based infrastructure to provide for comprehensive protection of hybrid environments. This session breaks down each of these Microsoft tools and provides for an understanding of their value for specific security scenarios. A simple, no-marketing approach is taken to evaluating each individual tool, and a simple breakdown of what is provided with each Microsoft licensing model is outlined. Attendees will gain a better appreciation to which tools to utilize and how to better protect their Information Technology investments from the type of career-ending attacks which are unfortunately common today. • Understand how modern threats such as cryptojacking, spear phishing, credential hijacking, and more are commonly faced in today’s IT environments and what tools and techniques can be used to mitigate the risk faced by these modern threats • Examine Microsoft security tools such as the Office 365 Security Center, Azure Sentinel, Azure Advanced Threat Protection, Azure Security Center, Cloud App Security, Azure AD Privileged Identity Management, Azure AD Identity Protection, Azure Information Protection, and more. • Understand which tools are available for each licensing model in the Microsoft world and when it may make sense to ‘upgrade’ existing licenses to support specific toolsets as opposed to investment in third-party tools

Surfacing MS Teams using SPFx

Speaker: Kirti Prajapati

How to build custom solutions for Microsoft Teams using SharePoint Framework Starting with the SharePoint Framework v1.8, you can also implement your Microsoft Teams tabs using SharePoint Framework. This significantly simplifies Teams tab development process as SharePoint Framework web parts are automatically hosted within SharePoint without any need for external services The first is the ability to create Teams tabs that contain SPFx solutions (web parts). Conceptually it’s quite simple: any SPFx web part you deploy that’s accessible to the SharePoint site that backs a Microsoft Teams team can be added as a custom tab in the team. Behind the scenes, there’s a special page in SharePoint that loads the web part on the page and the Teams client displays that page. To the end user, it looks like a SPFx web part is running within Microsoft Teams. As a developer, there’s a new microsoftTeams object on the page context API within SPFx that you can leverage to get Teams-specific things.

Using the SPF, DKIM and DMARC Frameworks to reduce Spoofing in Office365

Speaker: Vincent Choy

Email Spoofing has become common place. Hackers are creating fake email and messages, targeting both the unsuspecting public, your customers, or even your own users, for financial and other malicious gains. This is because Email lacks the ability to verify authenticity of all received mails. Fraudsters have taken advantage of this fundamental flaw to full advantage. 3 Frameworks, SPF in April 2014, DKIM in 2011, and DMARC in 2015. Together, these 3 frameworks work in tandem to help combat email fraud. Many security devices and email providers have adopted these standards, including Microsoft Office 365 and Google. However, these frameworks are often misunderstood. This session explains how these frameworks help prevent mail fraud and why adopting these frameworks in an organization would help both their own users, and their customers, suppliers or even the general public from being spoofed by fraudsters using the organization's email domain.
