TechUG event London 3rd of May 2018

I had the pleasure to be invited to speak at the Tech UG event in London last week. The agenda was packed with interesting content: My session was dedicated to Data Security, including Office 365 and Azure Information Protection, and included a live demo of cloud services to protect your data including encryption, labelling and data loss prevention. The TechUG event did not disappoint, great audience, relevant vendor sessions, great independent content and first-class location and catering. Because it contains independent session you get wonderful moment like this: More on TechUG Events More on Azure Information Protection David Nudelman
