Top pitfalls of Microsoft Azure security and how to avoid them
  • Karl Ots

English Introductory and overview Security

Did you know that contrary to popular belief, the most common cloud security threats are not outside attacks, but rather misconfigurations? To fully secure public cloud platforms, we need to understand them deeply. This requires both upskilling existing information security office with cloud expertise and shifting the way security responsibilities are spread across the organization. I have assessed the security hundreds of solutions built on the Microsoft Azure cloud and found that there are some key security pitfalls that are common across all industry verticals and company sizes. In this session, I will share what these security pitfalls are, why do they matter and how to mitigate them. More...

Keynote: The Ethical Dilemma of AI: Save Humanity or Destroy It?
  • Tim Huckaby

English Intermediate AI & Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has the processing capabilities of speed, scale, and capacity far beyond that of humans. As computers become more powerful, Machine learning (ML) the “brains” behind AI become exponentially more powerful. But… • Can that power always be trusted to be fair and neutral? • Can that power be trusted to protect your privacy within civic, state and federal laws worldwide? • Can the government hysteria of removing facial recognition technology from authorities like the police make me less safe against terrorism? • When Facebook or Google’s Photos service uses AI on my personal photos to identify people, locations, objects and scenes and consequently targets internet advertising at me based on that AI is it an invasion of my privacy? AI has already proven for years that it is saving lives. Not that it has to potential to save lives; it is already saving lives and has been for years. From cancer research to medical diagnosis to safety and security to covid-19 detection and everything in between; AI is saving lives. Yet we have technology industry pillars like Google, Amazon, and Facebook, leaders AI, who’s revenue, and consequently shareholder value is rooted in internet advertising. Companies who are using AI to track your activities on the internet to detailed granularity which produces influenceable advertising that is simply scary. And these companies have basically been doing this unimpeded for years. And then there is Microsoft, arguably the leader in AI in terms of sheer R&D, with revenue and shareholder value mainly based in cloud consumption who is pushing federal governments worldwide hard for AI regulation. It is years beyond the right time to talk about the nearly boundless landscape of artificial intelligence. In many ways, AI is just as much a new frontier for ethics and risk assessment as it is for emerging technology. Join Tim Huckaby in the discussion; a demo heavy keynote which will elaborate the power, the risk, the ethical dilemmas we are currently facing in AI and that we will face for many years to come.

After which She moved on to manage the start-up/ISV ecosystem for Microsoft west Africa. In this role she has helped many start-ups/ ISV set up their monetization strategy, improve profitability and position themselves favourably for funding. Since she commenced her career, EduAbasi has delivered consistently on her duties and currently serves as the Start-up lead for Microsoft West and East Africa. Upon taking up her current role as the Partner and Start-up lead for Microsoft West Africa, she has helped many businesses to set up their monetization strategy, improve profitability and position themselves favorably for funding. Her success in this role has been immensely fulfilling for her; because of the way it impacts the individuals behind these businesses. The sore spot however has been the fact that there are rarely any women in the leadership of these companies. Through her many years in the industry, she discovered that gender bias was a norm of which people had become comfortable with. Her passion to see more women in technology occupying lead roles and C-level positions drove her to question the norm and play her part in levelling the playing field for women in technology. Wentors was the outcome of those critical questions.

    Tim Huckaby

    Tim Huckaby is an industry luminary focused on AI, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, AR/MR, Data Visualization, & Edge computing. Mr. Huckaby has over 35 years of technology experience including serving on a server product team as a development lead on an architecture team at Microsoft. Mr. Huckaby worked on some famous and not so famous Microsoft Server products in the late nineties where, as a young man he learned how scalable enterprise software is built. Mr. Huckaby is a Microsoft Global RD, a Microsoft AI MVP and serves on many councils and boards like the Microsoft Application Development Partner Advisory Council. Having worked for or with Microsoft for over 25 years, Mr. Huckaby has been on stage with and done numerous keynote demos for many Microsoft executives including Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer and many other Microsoft and other technology executives over a 20+ year speaking career. Mr. Huckaby has been awarded many times for the highest rated technical & industry presentations and keynotes for Microsoft and many other vertical (retail, hospitality, healthcare, etc.) & technology conferences like CES and events all around the world.

Then Microsoft HoloLens was announced and he expanded his focus on Mixed Reality applications and concepts. He cannot stop talking about technology, which apparently some people like so Microsoft gave him the MVP award. Because he has shown leadership can advise C-levels and business, he also got accepted into the ranks of the Microsoft Regional Directors .

Now, this passion has become my job: the step from Lego® to software development was small. Finding the best possible solution so that a complex system can work at its best and making it run smoothly are the goals of my work. C#, ESB, MongoDb and Azure make up my survival toolkit and help me cruise through distributed systems and enterprise solutions, with ease. Be it a command or an event, I try to do my best in contributing to the life of the communities that have adopted me, trying to “give back” at least a part of what I have received over these years.

  • Senior Consultant IoT, Microsoft Azure MVP

    Stefan Denninger

    Stefan started his IT career 25 years ago. The study of information systems parallel to the job has hand in hand fertilized the professional life. The many stations from helpdesk, router configuration to business also had projects with MS Biztalk Server and many years with identity management. The operational management of data centers and countless customer projects has recently resulted in the creation of a powerful cloud group with a focus on Microsoft Azure and Office 365. The focus is currently on digitization in Industry 4.0 with IIoT. The projects are now completely different, since production and IT had nothing to do with each other for a long time. The projects are very local and also hybrid. Therefore, the Azure Stack family and Azure as a hybrid solution are an important part. If there is time I write information on https://blog.denninger.at, or send tweets at @stefandenninger In April 2018, I was appointed Microsoft Regional Director. In August 2019 I was awarded the title Microsoft MVP!
