Happy Friday!
We’re speeding into a weekend that I hope will be a good one for you. I hope it is something you’re looking forward to and something you will be able to look back on fondly.
This Sunday I’m off the mothership for meetings and good fun - but most importantly I’ll be speaking at TechMentor. TechMentor is geared toward the IT Professional and will be held at the on-campus Microsoft conference center. I’ll be bringing my own flavor of technical entertainment in a couple sessions:
If you miss this particular event, there’s another one in Orlando, FL in November that I’ll also be speaking at. Same topics but updated content to keep it fresh.
If you ARE attending don’t hesitate to connect with me to say hello, talk about security, or - heck - have your copy of your Must Learn KQL book signed.
I’ll back in the office on Thursday so you can count on the newsletter still delivering on Friday as usual.
We had a few awesome new Defender announcements this past week. You can catch them in the newsletter content below. But new offerings mean the list of Defender products continues to grow. And with growth comes the usual “how am I going to keep up?!” mantra.
Thank goodness for the Microsoft Docs teams. They’re on top of it. There’s a new Defender product landing page you should bookmark.
The Microsoft Defender brand landing page:
We have a survey for you this week. I hope you can participate to help make our offerings better and more aligned with your needs.
Internet-exposed workloads in AWS
Microsoft Defender for Cloud starts providing contextual security capabilities to help organizations better assess the risks their environments are exposed to while taking into account the structure of their cloud environment and its unique circumstances (like internet exposure, permissions, connection between resources, and more) that strongly affect risk level.
In this survey, we would like to understand which workloads you expose to the internet/to external users or services, and how are you doing it today in your AWS environment.
Wish me luck next week! I love getting together with people at these in-person events.
Talk soon.
