Microsoft Purview: Endpoint DLP Part 2

In this blog post, I will now go into more depth of the different features.

I present the individual protection options with examples and screenshots.

Use case:

A member of the supervisory board, Dr. Ludwig K., works with sensitive data of level C-4.

C-4 is the most sensitive data and any leakage can severely harm the enterprise.

The naming could be different in other companies or enterprises, but the bottom line is, everything boils down to “strictly confidential”.

Microsoft Purview: DKE from Zero to PoC

Double Key Encryption or DKE is a method of protecting data above anything else. As the name eludes it uses two keys together to protect the content. In the way that, one key is held by Microsoft (they protect it!) and the other is held purely by the customer (therefore by extension who are responsible to protect the key!). The mechanism of DKE piggy backs on the Azure Purview Label Set and when configured correctly allows a label to apply DKE protection to the data which it labels.

Spring Microsoft Ignite 2021 – The Future of Cybersecurity

I’m thrilled to be speaking again at Microsoft Ignite (spring edition). In fall 2020 I already had the chance to speak about Zero Trust in 2020 in front of a fully packed session. Table Talks in my oppinion are a very smooth and successful way to interact with experts on specific topics all around the globe. That’s why I’m really excited to be nominated to speak with Gokan Ozcifci, Dr. Mike Jankowski-Lorek, Paula Januszkiewicz and Tomas Vileikis about The Future of Cybersecurity.

Microsoft Ignite 2019 – Join my sessions!

2019 was already an incredible year. I was allowed to be on stages this year that I would never have dreamed of. Fantastic!

Definitely an absolute highlight has been RSA 2019, where I was invited to speak with my buddy Josh Harriman about “The Lost Boys: How Linux and Mac Intersect in a Windows-Centric Security World”. An awesome experience to be on stage with an expert like Josh!

Now two more top conferences are casting their shadow – Microsoft Ignite and ExpertsLive Europe.

Microsoft Ignite | November 4-8, 2019 | Orlando, Florida

Windows Defender ATP: the lost boys – Mac & Linux

At RSA 2019 I’ll be speaking about the Lost Boys: How Linux and Mac Intersect in a Windows-Centric Security World. We often see that Windows has such a large market share as the platform of choice, it can render Linux and Mac the Lost Boys in the world of security. This is also reinforced by the fact that the management of the two platforms for enterprise environments is simply not comparable to the administration of Windows client or server operating systems. But from the perspective of a security officer, this is as important as necessary. In November 2017, Microsoft announced that it will extend Windows Defender ATP partners across platforms. With that, the public availability of the WDATP integration of Ziften, Bitdefender and Lookout went live. With this comprehensive approach, Microsoft unites forces against cyber threats and adds lack of knowledge about behavior-based security solutions on these platforms through the industry expertise of its partners. This integration has now been extended to include two additional platforms, SentinelOne and Corrata. In this blog post I’ll give you a first introduction how the integration with Ziften can be done. Later we will have a look how the agent behaves on Mac and Linux machines with two different examples of real world attacks, that we have seen in the past couple of months.

Experts Live Europe – The new era of endpoint security!

Pirate,

I just arrived home from my trip to Prague Czech Republic. It was an amazing conference with a big firework at the end :). The conference counted over 400 attendees from 29 countries. In six different session tracks you could listen to 42 experts presenting a wide range of topics in the Microsoft universe. Besides the VIP party in Cloud 9 Sky Bar & Lounge my absolute highlight was the Intro Video below.

I’m speaking at Experts Live Europe in Prague

Pirate,

after Microsoft Ignite and IT:SA I’m looking forward to Experts Live Europe. I’m part of the community for more than 4 years now. Back in the days the conference was called System Center Universe Europe. I attended twice and I really liked the warm and welcoming atmosphere and the good quality and selection of the speakers. Honestly I’m super proud to be back as a speaker. Last year I had three sessions – check out the according blog post if you are interested.

Azure ATP: Golden Ticket Attack – Understanding Kerberos

Pirate,

many enterprise IT departments these days are afraid of golden ticket or pass the ticket attacks -which is good because privilege escalation and privileged account exploitation are at the center of cyber attacks as we see them. Attackers crash through the network perimeter, hijack credentials and use them to move laterally throughout the network, taking additional credentials and escalating privileges along the way to accomplish their goals. In this blog series we will have a look at kerberos golden ticket and silver ticket attacks. I’ll try my best to explain how it works and how Azure ATP / Advanced Threat Analytics can help to detect.
