    Masterclass: Intune and Conditional Access
    Oavsett om du arbetar med virtuella eller fysiska desktops så har du med all sannolikhet stött på Microsoft Intune.

    I en helt ny Masterclass kommer Simon ta med dig på en resa - från en tom tenant till en fullt hanterad och säker Windows 365 desktop, med hjälp av Microsoft Intune.

    Under dagen kommer fokus vara på Windows 365 och AVD, men det kommer även finnas tid för frågor om andra operativsystem och fysiska devicer.

    Vi kommer bland annat gå igenom:

    • Microsoft Intune, vad är det och hur börjar du?

    • Entra ID för Intune och EUC administratörer, allt du behöver veta.

    • Från GPO till MDM - hur du konfigurerar Windows på rätt sätt.

    • Applikations & Uppdateringshantering

    • Hur konfigurerar du Conditional Access på rätt sätt och undviker vanliga misstag.

    Samt mycket mer! Självklart kommer det även finnas gott om utrymme för frågor, diskussion och dialog.

    Masterclassen innehåller inga traditionella labbar, men det är rekommenderat att ha tillgång till en Intune tenant för att kunna hänga med och själv utföra momenten Simon går igenom. Ta även chansen att få en "second opinion" på er egen uppsättning!

    Trends and challenges for (digital) workplaces in 2024 and beyond
    Tekniken har aldrig varit viktigare för våra arbetsplatser än de är idag. Samtidigt brottas många organisationer med besparingskrav och arbetsplatsstrategier. Varför är det här så viktigt och på vilka sätt kan tekniken hjälpa organisiationer att få nöjdare användare, en ekonomi i balans och nå sina mål?

    Simon blandar teknik, forskning och inspirerande exempel och visioner med målet att tydliggöra varför vi som IT-arkitekter och tekniker är viktigare än någonsin för våra arbetsgivare och kollegor.

    Kundecase: AVD på HCI Stack
    Earlier this year Microsoft released the GA version of Azure Virtual Desktop for Azure Stack HCI after a historically long Tech Preview period. When Microsoft also just released a brand new build of Azure Stack HCI (23H2), things were getting interesting when we tried to deploy this combination for a Norwegian public customer. We share our pros and cons and experiences with this implementation as we believe this could be of public interest.

    Never trust - not even a session's description!
    Zero Trust has been a buzzword concept for years now. It feels that principles are ripening, and awareness and acceptance of the idea are rising and manifesting. We'll discuss how and why you know more about your devices in your digital workplaces. And we'll see if never trusting is actually a thing.

    Breakout Session 1: Inbound Provisioning and Identity Governance with Microsoft Entra ID Governance and Workflows
    It all begins and ends with an Identity!

    Before the users and their devices can be managed, they need to be onboarded and provisioned with their user account. This is where Microsoft Entra Provisioning API and Lifecycle Workflows in Entra ID Governance enters the scene. By automating scenarios for Joiner, Mover and Leaver we can set up templates and tasks that for example automatically sends out a Temporary Access Pass for new hires which they can use for first time setting up their account and device to be securely managed! We can even implement custom tasks and extensions via Azure Logic Apps, that can trigger other APIs or even something you've built in Azure Functions! Learn how to use these lifecycle templates and customize tasks with serverless solutions in this awesome deep dive workshop where automation black belt Jan Vidar will share his best tips and tricks for implementing a successful Identity Governance that supports a seamless and automated user on- and offboarding!
    09.00 - 09.45
    Breakout Session 1: AVD Landing Zone Accelerator - VDI på 1-2-3, eller?
    Microsoft sin Azure Virtual Desktop Landing Zone Accelerator gir deg en ferdig referansearkitektur med tilhørende infrastruktur som kode, så du kan kjøre opp en fullstendig VDI-løsning i Azure på under 45 minutter. Det høres jo litt for godt til å være sant? I denne sesjonen skal vi teste ut denne teorien. Klarer vi å introdusere konseptet, gjennomgå arkitekturen og komponentene, snakke om fallgruver å unngå, i tillegg til å rulle ut en VDI-løsning før det er tid for neste sesjon?

Bland annat kommer ni får se hur Windows 365 Boot och Switch fungerar och nya sätt att skapa custom images för AVD. Avslutningsvis ser vi in i framtiden för de båda produkterna och hur de passar in i en större EUC kontext.

    Breakout Session 2: EmPOWERing End Users with Local Admin Rights Securely!
    Long gone are the days where users are allowed to be local administrators of their company devices, and rightly so! But there are still scenarios where you need to EmPOWER your employees with a solution where they can perform administrative tasks on the device. This session is all about how what tools and solutions you can give employees to elevate to admins, and we will look into Windows LAPS, Entra ID Privileged Identity Management and Intune Endpoint Privilege Management. PS! Most of these solutions are for Helpdesk and IT, we will look into how you can EmPOWER (via PowerApp) as well.
    10.50 - 11:30

    How Nerdio takes you from zero to AVD hero in 30 minutes
    Everyone is talking about AVD, is it good enough, who have done it before me and is it good enough? During this session sponsored by Atea, Nerdio will show you everything except that! We rather look behind the scenes and take a look under the hood, how do we manage AVD, update and patch, combine it with Intune and scale it? These are the questions this session will try to answer for you!

    The art of balancing Security and Usability
    In today's world, organizations face a constant challenge of balancing security and usability in IT systems. Security is essential to protect data, assets, and reputation from cyber threats, but it can also impose restrictions and limitations on the users, affecting their productivity, satisfaction, and performance.

    If the usability of application security features is weak, users will try to avoid or bypass them. However, if done correctly, security does not impact usability, on the contrary, usability increases security. This delicate equilibrium is particularly crucial in the realm of the Modern Workplace, where security protocols are paramount to safeguard sensitive data and systems. Unfortunately, when forming the Modern Workplace, organizations are often met by strict self-propelled security requirements. We, however, propose to aim to follow the usability trio principle, often referred to as the usability triangle:

    • Usability
    • Security
    • Manageability

    The tree areas are all equally important, despite security measures often getting the “most airtime” we have focus on usability, pursuing goals to meet and exceed productivity requirements as well as deliver on expectations for more personal computing on the devices in use.

    The art of balancing Windows Security and Usability, go headfirst into the intricate dynamics of the perpetual struggle between security and the pursuit of a great end-user experience.

    The focus of this presentation is to show how security does not have to be a hindrance to usability, but rather an enabler, and we will discuss the following objectives:

    • Explain the concept of security and usability and why it matters for both users and IT Professionals.
    • Identify the common pitfalls and challenges of designing secure systems that are also user-friendly.
    • Provide examples and Best Practices of how to balance security and usability in different scenarios and domains.
    • Demonstrate how usability can increase security by reducing user errors, increasing user satisfaction, and enhancing user trust.

    This session is for everyone working within the management sphere, whatever area within the usability trio you reside. All configurations, functional scripts and tools is freely available, and you will be able to start balancing Security and Usability right after the presentation.
