Modern Management of User Data and Settings

Description:
One of the biggest roadblocks preventing customers from transitioning away from legacy OSD to modern management using Autopilot is that the lack of an automated process of capturing and restoring data, settings and applications outside of ConfigMgr. In this session we will cover methods that facilitate true zero touch PC deployment for the replace and 'reimage' scenarios. These technologies enable organizations to direct ship PC’s from the manufacturer to the end user and to replace broken hardware in just minutes. This not only frees up valuable time for the IT team to focus on more important tasks it also results in less loss of productivity for the end user. As an added benefit the user data is accessible anywhere from any device.

What you will learn:
  • Migrating user data to OneDrive for Business using Known Folder Move
  • Configuring UE-V to capture user settings
  • Configuring Enterprise State Roaming to capture user settings
  • How to deal with reinstalling applications outside of OSD

Adaptiva: Enterprise-Scale Vulnerability Management

IT pros have a speed problem. It takes far too much time to find out what security vulnerabilities are the most important to remediate, and which app security patches are the most critical. Then it takes enormous time and effort to execute—to remediate and update all endpoints at all locations.

In this session, you’ll learn the standards and repositories where you can get current information about vulnerabilities. You’ll see how to build an effective strategy to find and remediate them quickly though automation. You’ll learn how to intelligently manage endpoint vulnerabilities in a distributed enterprise without interrupting business operations.

One lucky attendee of this session will win a Microsoft Surface Go with Keyboard Cover!

Role Based Administration, Not Just Another Three Letter Acronym

Description:
Role Based Administration (RBA) in System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) is a critical mechanism for most organizations. It enables a divide and conquer approach to administration by controlling visibility and manageability of nearly all objects in the ConfigMgr console. RBA is also key to preventing mishaps in any organization where there are distinct separate responsibilities or even [gasp] a lack of trust between admins. Configuring RBA though is bit a cumbersome as there is no hierarchy of non-collection objects and thus there is no inheritance of controls and permissions on these objects. We’ll dive as deep as we dare into everything you need to know to implement RBA successfully along with the various caveats, exceptions, and things to avoid. We’ll also walk through common scenarios to help solidify what RBA actually is, how is actually works, and why you should be using it even in smaller organizations.

What you will learn:
  • Why RBA is not Role based access control (RBAC) and what it actually does.
  • Why you should use RBA.
  • How to successfully implement RBA.
  • Kim is a kieken.

Systems Management Mistakes (and How to Avoid Them)

Description:
Join this session for a discussion on avoiding the biggest mistakes being made in management in the world of the cloud. Back in the day we had System Center for all things automation, monitoring and management, but much of IT has moved on beyond on-prem systems into the cloud. While the business requirements may be similar to what they once were, the tools are different and often conflicting. In this session we will provide practical lessons on systems management mistakes that we have seen and how to avoid them. You will learn what tools are now available for managing your systems and apps so that you can choose the right one for the task.

What you will learn:
  • Know which tools are available for systems management and what they do and learn which you should you use for your systems - based on what you want to accomplish with them.
  • Learn limitations of the Microsoft tools which are available to manage your systems and applications.
  • Understand methods to integrate on-prem tools (like System Center) with the automation tools available in Azure.
  • Find out how to integrate effective logging, alerts and dashboards for all of your managed systems and applications.

Parallels: LODO: Universal Endpoint Management with Parallels Mac Management

Sure “universal endpoint management” is something ConfigMgr admins talk about in strategic terms – but often we gloss over the tactical, day-to-day operations necessary to keep the “Lights On, Doors Open” (LODO) within our network infrastructures.
In this session, ConfigMgr Guru and Parallels PMM Expert Danny Knox will talk about how you can:
  • Deploy software and images to the Macs on your network
  • Distribute software/OS patches to unprotected “breachable” Macs
  • Incorporate IBCM, Apple VPP and MDM Daily though your ConfigMgr console.

Manage ConfigMgr Internet-Based Clients with CMG

Description:
CMG allows us to manage our internet facing clients. Previously we have used Internet-based client management where we had to configure secure internet-facing site systems so that internet-based clients could communicate. This was a good technology with many advantages. However, there were also some disadvantages. Now we can use CMG to manage these clients. It consists of a Microsoft Azure cloud service and a ConfigMgr site system role that communicates with that Azure service. Internet clients can then use the Azure service to communicate with ConfigMgr. This is really cool technology and gives us many advantages over traditional internet based client management. In this session we'll learn how to set up a CMG.

What you will learn:
  • Understand the typical CMG management scenarios and which features are supported
  • See how the CMG actually works to deliver these features
  • Learn about the prerequistes for configuring a CMG, including certificates and firewall ports
  • Know how to create and use the CMG to manage internet clients

Description:
In Part 2 of Common ConfigMgr Issues and How to Fix 'em, David and Cameron will continue reviewing some common potholes and tripwires that can keep you from enjoying a relaxing, and euphoric ConfigMgr experience.  As the saying goes, "Humans are the worst thing to ever happen to technology", we will focus more on how the tools are used (or misused), and provide some options for avoiding some painful mistakes.

Hopefully you attended Part 1, with Adam Gross and Doug Wilson, so you've been seasoned and tenderized for proper grilling. If you didn't, you might want to jump back on the grill, you're not done yet.

Topics include:
  • Servers as Desktops

In this session we will provide practical lessons on automation mistakes that we have seen and how to avoid them. You will learn what tools are now available for automation so that you can choose the right one for the task.

What you will learn:
  • Know which tools are available for automation and what they do and learn which you should you use for automation - based on what you want to accomplish with them.

Detecting, Mitigating, and Preventing Credential Theft

Description:
How do attackers compromise credentials? What happens when an attacker compromises credentials? How can you protect your environment? These are all questions you need to be asking if your organization is utilizing the cloud in any way, since over 90% of security breaches can now be tied to identity. Everybody put on your black hat and join us as we put ourselves in the shoes of an attacker and demonstrate just how easy it is for an attacker to steal an account and use it to entrench themselves in your environment. Don't worry though, we're not just here to scare! We'll jump straight in and show how tools like Microsoft's ATP suite (Defender, Azure, and Office 365 ATP), as well as simple reporting within local and Azure AD can help prevent, monitor, and stop credential theft in its tracks.
