Microsoft Tech-Ed is coming to Los Angeles on May 11th-15th.

You'll go back to your office with knowledge and expertise that only five days at Tech Ed can offer. You can learn about today’s cutting edge trends, helping make life easier for you (and everyone else) at work. But the most important benefit just might be the networking: you can build personal connections with Microsoft experts and peers that will last far beyond Tech-Ed.

Among the 20 technical tracks is a Security, Identity, and Access track that will feature AD RMS and related technologies. Some of the sessions highlighting AD RMS are the following:

  • Using Active Directory Rights Management Services and Microsoft Exchange to Protect Sensitive E-mail Communication (SIA324) - E-mail is one of the primary leak vectors for sensitive business information.

(Amit Fulay, Fri 5/15 | 10:45 AM-12:00 PM | Petree Hall D)

  • Protect against Information Leaks with Microsoft Active Directory Rights Management Services and RSA Data Loss Prevention Solutions (SIA311) - Information is our customers' most valuable asset.

(Mohan Atreya and Marcio Mello, Tue 5/12 | 2:45 PM-4:00 PM | Room 402)

We will also have some hands-on labs. Additionally, be sure to stop by and talk with the team at our product booth in the pavilion. It will be a great opportunity for you to see some of the new scenarios where AD RMS is helping organizations protect their information.

We hope to see you there.
