Today I had the privilege to speak at SharePoint Saturday Genève. I did a session about security in a cloud environment when you are moving from an on-premises environment to the cloud. The security then moves from your perimeter network to the user’s identity. The session gave an overview of the tools in Azure AD to secure the cloud identity.

This week I had the privilege to speak at Office 365 connect. My session was scheduled on the second day at 9 am. My session was about Protecting your data in Office 365 and had the big room where the keynote was yesterday. For me, this was the first time on a big event speaking and was a bit excited on doing this. After just a few minutes it felt good and had a great presentation with good feedback from the audience.
This weekend I had the privilege to speak at SharePoint Saturday in Leicester. Here I did a session on Protecting your data in office 365.

It was that time of the year again to visit Belgium for their SharePoint Saturday. An excellent day organized by BIWUG. This year was a tribute to an amazing SharePoint teacher who passed away too soon, Patrick Tisseghem. I did not know him but heard and read about him, I only was working 1 year with SharePoint when he passed away. During the day there were videos and photos about the things he did for the community.
When setting up a hybrid environment we usually first setup hybrid search and do not that much on hybrid profiles. I have noticed that there are some quirks in the hybrid profiles what might not get noticed while setting it up. At the moment of setting up hybrid profiles, there is not that much to configure. Only none, all in Office 365 or based on a group. As many of you know a good user profile consists of some basic data like a photo, name, contact details, manager and location.
There are various ways of security in office 365, this time I walk you thru the security possibilities for Email. As we start with the basics, we have the option to use an SPF record to protect us from spam on a very basic level. This is so basic and a requirement when you add the domain to Office 365. As we go deeper into the security of the mail flow we see DKIM and DMARC.
A common situation in SharePoint is adding custom properties to a SharePoint profile. In an on-premises environment, it was very easy to link these properties to a property in AD. In SharePoint Online, you are not able to link these Azure AD properties. So how can we solve this? There is a very simple solution for this in the Office Dev PnP PowerShell pack called ‘Set-PnPProfileProperty’. This command sets any user profile property for the given user.
