Being an introvert and a speaker

It is normal to feel nervous before a speaking event - but as an introvert, public speaking can be challenging at times hard.

Being an introvert does not mean you fear public speaking. It just means that you like to focus on your inner thoughts and feelings, but it needs you to plan well, practice, and find your own way of communication.

In this session I will give you my tips to Help You, to Be yourself, be a Performer, control your nerves, calm your body (especially your brain) and how you can give a technical presentation, even if you are an introvert and would rather be somewhere else.

I am not a professional speaker; I do not have a degree in public speaking, and I am an introvert. Nevertheless, I will share how a smile, running a marathon, science, storytelling, and procrastination are all related, as they all affect me when I do Public Speaking.

I have experienced almost every situation you can think of, from people leaving, falling asleep to spilling water everywhere causing the power to go - I know how hard it can be when the drums are not playing and how to recover in a cool manner – it is simple but very hard – it is a story worth sharing!

This session is about changing “Presentation” to “Speaking” - by being well prepared, being in control, and enjoying the thrill of Public Speaking.

Windows Gecko: A multifunctional solution for Desired State Configuration in Windows Autopilot scena

There as several ways to achieve a Windows desired state configuration baseline and several approaches. Windows gecko is built upon the requirement to provide a default configuration baseline, or a desired state configuration, and is not meant to stop the end user to install a previously removed app, or circumvent a desired setting, purely to allow device administrators to provide a default baseline, or corporate baseline, to the end user as part of a Windows Autopilot scenario.

The goal of Windows gecko is to provide a consistent desired state configuration to end user devices in Windows Autopilot scenarios.

The mindset of the solution will aim to allow to limit and/or combine the functionalities best suited for the task, meaning if Windows feature configuration were to be applied, this should be achievable without the Windows Registry configuration. Also, very important, is to be able to apply Windows baselines configuration in one or multiple packages in either system or user context, without changing the code – which is why all configurations is achievable using configuration files (json). This will help ensure minimal effort to create a new Windows desired state configuration, being easily completed without any code changes or re-signing the provided code.

The art of balancing Windows 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 Windows Security and Usability right after the presentation.
