Keynote: Experience AI transformation in action
As always, Microsoft Ignite will kick off with powerful keynotes by leaders across Microsoft. Charlie Bell, Executive Vice President, Microsoft Security, and Vasu Jakkal, Corporate Vice President (CVP) Microsoft Security, Compliance, Identity, and Privacy, will discuss how customers can catch what others miss with comprehensive security, unified visibility, and the power of Microsoft Security Copilot. The keynote is packed with exciting Microsoft product announcements and demos you won’t want to miss.
Security strategies for the modern leader
For security leaders, we’re presenting a new, in-person track that that delves into both sides of AI—the new risks it introduces and the new opportunities it enables. On day one, we’ll share our latest innovations that support our ongoing commitment to security in the age of AI. And on day two, we’ll share more about how our suite of Microsoft products can help you prepare for the challenges that come with the proliferation of AI and the increase in cybersecurity threats. Join us to learn more about how Microsoft is committed to meeting both the challenges and opportunities of AI head on. Key topics will span:
- The new era in security operations (SecOps) with generative AI, automatic attack disruption, embedded threat intelligence, and more with Rob Lefferts, CVP, Modern Protection and SOC.
- Best practices for securing complex multinational environments led by Bret Arsenault, Chief Information Security Officer, Microsoft.
- The latest trends on how to defend against the evolving threat landscape with a special security industry guest.
Breakout sessions: Practical applications to secure your digital landscape
Our announcements don’t stop at the keynote. For our security practitioners, decision makers, and IT professionals, Microsoft Security will feature eight different security breakout sessions covering everything from multicloud security and device security posture to data security, best practices, and more. Product experts will showcase our latest news and give you in-depth demos to help you put the new features to work for you.
Learn how to stop cross-domain attacks, explore how to create a comprehensive code-to-cloud infrastructure protection strategy, or listen in on our future-facing discussion about how we plan to safeguard our customers in the era of AI. With a breadth of information across security, identity, compliance, and management, these breakout sessions let you get a first look at our newest product innovations, participate in live challenges, review real-world red team exercises, and understand the risks and benefits inherent in AI. Topics covered will include:
- Boosting multicloud security with code-to-cloud strategies.
- Going beyond data loss prevention with comprehensive data security.
- The next generation of endpoint management and device security posture.
In addition to breakout sessions, dive deeper and join our interactive sessions with discussions. Discussions are your chance to ask questions, provide feedback, and bring your toughest challenges for live problem-solving across a range of topics including:
- How are organizations securing the use of generative AI.
- Using game-changing threat intelligence as you defend.
- Security product AMAs (ask me anything).
Exciting demos will help you take advantage of new product features as soon as you leave Microsoft Ignite. You’ll get a chance to see how Security Copilot and Microsoft Intune work together, how to get started with our SIEM and XDR (security information and event management and extended detection and response) solutions, and how to use a cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) to protect multicloud environments.
