Topic:

Using Azure Policy & Initiatives with Azure Security Center for Organizational Governance & Compliance

Abstract:

Challenges arise within a cloud environment when resources can be created that may affect, cost, security, or regulatory jurisdictions. Role-based access control (RBAC) and the principles of least privilege provide levels of restriction to users and groups within the environment as to what resources they can access or create, but they do not set parameters on where they can be created, the level of cost, or the security requirements. Azure policies are created, assigned, and utilized to govern the resources within your Azure subscription. Policies should be put in place based on the business, security, and financial requirements of the organization. This session will explore these three areas and examples of each that can be assigned and monitored.

Five Azure Services Every Developer Should Know

Abstract:

Getting started with Azure can be daunting for new developers. With dozens of various platforms, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with choices! Where should I host my applications? Where should I store my data? How do I manage my applications? Despite the numerous amounts of specialized choices available on Azure, there are core platforms that meet the majority of the requirements for the majority of use cases. In this talk, you’ll be introduced to these platforms, their use cases, and some best practices for working with them. Along the way, we’ll implement and deploy a solution to Azure that takes advantage of them.
