All About Identity And Security On-Premises And In The Cloud – It's Just Like An Addiction, The More You Have, The More You Want To Have!

(2012-10-22) Presenting At The Experts Conference (TEC) In Barcelona (Spain)

Posted by Jorge on 2012-10-22

As we speak, I’m preparing my presentation and demo’s for tomorrow (Tuesday, October 23rd 2012) about all object recovery methods in all Windows Server versions released until now. It will cover common information related to object recovery and then I will dive in into the technical specific for each method available. This presentation will  consist of two sessions of each 75 minutes and I will also show 4 demo’s, one for each method of recovering objects.

  • Location: Barcelona, Spain – Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I
  • Meeting Room: “J”
  • Time: 10:15 – 11:30 (part 1) & 11:30 – 12:45 (part 2)
  • Session Title: “The Evolution Of Object Recovery In AD – The Road To Perfection – A Technical Deep Dive (Part 1 and Part 2)”
  • Level: 400
  • Abstract: Since the beginning, when Active Directory was first released with Windows 2000 Server, the methods and means for object recovery in AD have evolved and improved each time a new version of Windows was released. In time, the technology made it more easy to recover objects and prevent the loss of data after recovery. We will start this session with an introduction to object recovery related topics, followed by an explanation of all object recovery methods in all versions of AD after an accidental (mass) deletion, including what’s new in Windows Server 2008 R2 and in Windows Server "8". The session will finish with recommendations around object recovery. This session consists of two parts (2x 75 min.) and will include multiple demos!

    Jose, congratulations to you for being a speaker at the DEC in Barcelona! Although we have not met, I have learnt much from your detailed blog postings and you are a true Active Directory expert. I am a security researcher and my focus is on Active Directory Privilege Escalation which I am working on for my dissertation. I live in Moscow and I tried making it to DEC in Barcelona this year, but I could not due to visa issues. Some of my buddies work for Quest Software in their St. Petersburg, Russia offices, and they speak highly of you, so I thought of reaching out to you an saying Hello. Please keep up the good work on your blog – your detailed posts are very informative and enjoyable. Thank you.
