Good day all! Happy Friday!
I’m in steady preparation for the upcoming RSA conference. If you’ve not seen or heard yet, Microsoft will be at RSA in a big, big way.
If you’re also attending, check out all the ways to connect with us: https://cda.ms/4jD
Incidentally, I’ll be on-hand at the pre-day and at the booth in the expo and would love to connect with anyone attending. Let me know if you’ll be there.
Next week, there’s a couple Defender-specific webinars that may be of interest:
  1. May 24 - Microsoft Defender for IoT | Section 52 - Investigating Malicious Ladder Logic
  2. May 26 - Microsoft Defender for Cloud | Azure Security Benchmark V3 Workbook

The Must Learn KQL learning series is an unequivocal success but more needs to be done. I outline in a recent post the number of completion certificates I’ve handed out already and while that number is wonderful, more people need to get the message how important learning KQL really is.
So, the Must Learn KQL book is now available on Amazon!
Kindle version: https://amzn.to/3MyMOOS
This gives it a much wider audience and like everything that’s part of this learning series, any and all profit goes directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
I owned and sold an eBook publishing company (NetImpress) way back in 2004-2005 before even Amazon had concocted its own eBook production methods. It was revolutionary at the time and most of what our company did had to be invented. And, while many of the same things I learned through NetImpress are still valid and useful today, there are many aspects that have changed or just didn’t exist. Developing and delivering Must Learn KQL series has been a pioneering experience on all the nuances of producing a learning series in this manner and I suspect others will take notice and begin duplicating my efforts.
There are some other things to tweak, but I do know that I’ll be doing it again with another series in the very near future. Stay tuned.
That’s it for now. Have a wonderful weekend and week ahead.
Talk soon.
