The session will cover Update Rings, Feature Updates, Drivers, how WUFBDS (Windows Updates For Business Deployment Services) works, optimising user experience, reading updates metadata via API, configuring WUFB Reports and more. Jose Schenardie
2:15-3:15 So how do you DO? Delivery Optimisation that is! Chris has worked with customers from 1000 to 450,000 seats deploying delivery optimisation as part of his role helping customers deploy Windows Autopatch, Windows and other associated workloads. The challenge comes for customers with poor networks when they want to consume updates from Windows Update for Business, App installs through Intune or similar where they can’t move the workload because there isn’t enough bandwidth available. Chris will run through the architecture, functionality and recommendations he has around DO and answer your questions on DO and how you can set it up in your environment. This helps ensure devices are sharing content and helping minimise risk to your network. Chris Sweeney
3:15-3:30 Short break
3:30-4:30 Risks around unstructured data within an M365 Environment In this session we will hear from a CyberCX Senior Investigator of Digital Forensics & Incident Response, Lee Morgan and Director of Microsoft Cloud, Jacob Estrin on the risks around unstructured data within a M365 environment.
Most of the data breaches investigated by CyberCX involve the attacker stealing sensitive data, then threatening the victim organisation to publish it online unless an extortion payment is made to the attacker. Of more concern in recent cases, CyberCX has observed attackers applying far more focussed and sophisticated efforts to stealing the most highly sensitive data held by victim organisations and leveraging it to full affect during engagement and negotiations.
In this presentation, Lee Morgan will be walking through how these attacks are performed, shining a light on the techniques attackers use to locate and steal sensitive data. Based on the insights gained through hundreds of data breach investigations, Lee and Jacob will also outline some of the most practical and effective methods to reduce the threat of data theft extortion.
