How to protect your company from advanced attacks using ATA and ATP)

In today’s world, attackers compromise non-privileged and privileged users, devices, servers, etc. in order to gain access to the network and steal confidential information from businesses. A majority of the advanced security attacks are traced back to compromised user credentials.

In this session, we deep dive into Microsoft’s latest security product additions to the EMS Suite: Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) and Windows 10 Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). These new products help you identify security breaches before any damage is actually caused

More on the speakers later!
So block your agenda and come over to the Microsoft Belux offices for another great community evening!

Please be aware that this is a free and 100% community driven event. A lot of effort and spare time from a lot of people is put into it.

Most of our UG events sell out, but unfortunately there are always “no-shows”. Each one of these no-shows is a waste of effort and budget from our UG.

Therefore: If you do register and cannot come for whatever reason, please cancel your ticket on time and leave the opportunity for someone else.

Event registrations are closely monitored so we can manage our time, effort and budgets in a most optimized manner.
