(2018-10-07) Presenting At Hybrid Identity Protection (HIP) Conference In New York

Posted by Jorge on 2018-10-07


As we speak, I’m preparing my presentation and demo’s for my presentation at the Hybrid Identity Protection (HIP) conference in New York. You can get more information, and of course register (did you already register?) through the following link https://www.hipconf.com/. The conference dates are Monday November 5th and Tuesday November 6th.

The Speaker List: https://www.hipconf.com/speakers/

The Agenda: https://www.hipconf.com/agenda/

My session is scheduled for Monday November 5th at 5 PM (17:00) and is called “How To Secure Shared Social Media Accounts And Achieve SSO Through Azure AD”

Abstract:

Nowadays many companies have an online presence in most likely more than one social media to at least service and/or communicate with customers regarding all kinds of matters. Some well-known examples are Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Of course, other social media may exist specific to the business or country.

The main question is: how can you make sure those (shared) social media accounts are used in a secure manner by a group of people and still keep the bad guys out?

The answer is: That’s where Azure AD comes into the playing field!

Come to this session to learn and see about experiences using the Azure AD solution. Yes, demos are included!

See you there!

Cheers,
Jorge

Posted by Jorge on 2017-07-21


Some things in life are too much fun to not do it. An example of such occasion is presenting at a conference. The people at Semperis and sdmsoftware contacted me if I wanted to present at the Hybrid ID conference in New York next November. Jeez, that’s a difficult question to answer! Smile

Heck YES! Want to know more? Have a look at http://hipconf.com/ for the speaker list and the topics presented. Hope to see you there!

People that I worked with in the past, also presenting are:

It looks almost like a family reunion! Smile

Cheers,
Jorge

(2014-10-05) Presenting @ Experts Live 2014

Posted by Jorge on 2014-10-05


I’m going to present a session (in Dutch) about certificates in ADFS @ the Experts Live 2014 Conference on November 18th. The conference agenda can be found through the following link: http://www.expertslive.nl/index.php/programma/

DUTCH:

Sessie Titel: ADFS en Certificaten – Het is meer dan techniek alleen!

Sessie Abstract: Een ADFS infrastructuur is zeer afhankelijk van certificaten. De stabiliteit van een dergelijke infrastructuur staat of valt dus met de werking van de benodigde certificaten. Bij het ontsluiten van applicaties lokaal of in de cloud, is ADFS vaak niet het doel zelf, maar juist een middel om een ander hoger doel te bereiken. Wanneer de certificaten in ADFS niet de juiste aandacht krijgen, gaat het mogelijk na 1 of 2 jaar na de implementatie van ADFS behoorlijk mis. Bent u er op voorbereid om vooral de impact zo laag mogelijk te houden? In deze sessie zullen we alle ins en out tevoorschijn halen v.w.b. certificaten in ADFS.

ENGLISH:

Session Title: ADFS and Certificates – It is more than technology only!

Session Abstract: An ADFS infrastructure is very dependent on the use of certificates. The stability of such an infrastructure stands or falls with the operation of the required certificates. When connecting applications locally or in the cloud , ADFS itself is often not the goal itself, but rather a mean to achieve a higher goal. When the certificates in ADFS do not get the right attention, it is possible that after 1 or 2 years after the implementation of ADFS things go quite wrong. Are you prepared to keep the impact as low as possible? In this session , we’ll talk about all the ins and outs with regards to certificates in ADFS.

Cheers,

Jorge

(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.

image

Figure 1: Opening Slide Of Session

  • 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!

(2011-02-16) Speaking At TEC 2011 In Las Vegas

Posted by Jorge on 2011-02-16


You may have heard it by now, and if not…TEC 2011 returns this year back to Las Vegas, the Red Rock Hotel. And… there’s something to celebrate! This year is the 10th DEC/TEC! Party!!!!!!

image (or click here)

Like every previous year I’m speaking at TEC. This year I’m delivering two sessions, one session about Active Directory and one session about FIM 2010.

image (or click here)

THE ABSTRACTS OF MY SESSIONS ARE:

[‘1’] Locating Domain Controllers For Authentication And Access To The Default Domain DFS Share (SYSVOL)

Speaker: Jorge de Almeida Pinto

This session will focus on locating Active Directory Domain Controllers for two very important processes. The first process is authenticating accounts in AD followed by the process to access data stored on the default domain DFS share "SYSVOL" such as for example GPOs and logon scripts. Each process uses its own mechanism to locate a domain controller to service the request that’s being made. Both processes will be explained in detail in terms of how these work and how these interact with each other. To put everything together, a use case will be used to highlight the configurations even better. If time allows, a demo will be part of the presentation.

[2] Scripting The Migration Of The FIM 2010 Configuration Between Different Instances – The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Speaker: Jorge de Almeida Pinto

In addition to the Synchronization Engine, FIM now also has a Portal. Both the Portal and the Synchronization Engine contain configuration items that determine the behavior FIM2010. When having multiple instances of FIM 2010 (Development, Test, Production) it is important to have a semi-automated process that is able to migrate the configuration of one instance into the other instance as easily as possible. This session will focus on using the configuration export tooling, which is available within FIM, including experiences and best practices. If time allows, a demo will be part of the presentation.
