So your organization has decided to take the plunge and invest in a cloud service provider (CSP): Microsoft Azure. Maybe this is voluntary or alternatively through mergers and acquisitions, but the fact remains the same: Azure is likely an extension to your organizations’ on-premises enterprise network. Whether your organization is configured for a hybrid (cloud/on-premises) or completely cloud-native architecture, there are extensive security considerations. Azure is a fast-moving train; the technologies, services and integrations are constantly changing. Cloud service adoption rates are increasing, and an understanding of the Azure services, architecture, and security is critical. We’ll discuss many of the core security features and considerations that are fundamental tenets of a secure Azure environment.  Additionally, we will touch on a business continuity strategy in the event federation fails or on-premises service is no longer available. It is an ambitious topic, but one that will help you better approach and prioritize your Azure hardening initiatives.

When establishing security roles in Microsoft D365, it is important to institute a robust security design with minimal security risks resulting from Segregation of Duties (SoD) conflicts and excessive sensitive access. Failure to reduce SoD conflicts and needless SA will result in unexpected risks and audit findings due to a lack of checks and balances in place. The out-of-box security roles inherently contain security risks that when assigned to users, foster a risky environment. In this session, we will discuss security risks, security design, and how to implement the security roles in D365.

The content of this session is geared toward an audience with beginner to intermediate-level knowledge of the subject area.

This session will be available for CPE credits pending completion of session survey post event.

With the release of Azure Data Lake and surrounding technologies, it is easy to see why there is hope within the AX and F&SCM communities for a better reporting solution than BYOD.
