Pretty much good friends?! WhatsApp, business contacts, data privacy and Citrix Endpoint Management The GDPR is around for quite a while, but in addition the fines are also in place now. Nobody wants to be the first to get penalized. In a rush of panic lots of companies have banned WhatsApp from their business-enabled SmartPhones practically over night or they are researching better ways to a compliant handling methodology, knowing and realizing a bunch of popular and

mostly US-driven services and app ecosystems don't care about our most
elementary requirements around privacy and confidentiality. After all, does there even exist a technically matured and reliable solution that combines and respects the European needs or do we have to restart from scratch? This session demonstrates (from a daily usage perspective and practical experience) a valid path to actually allow a combined business and personal SmartPhone usage scenario in conformity with the EU law that does not fool the users' expectations. It showcases if and how (Citrix) mobility management software has grown up and what taken-for-grantedness features finally have to die.

RES 2 Ivanti Workspace Manager. In the past year the landscape has changed rapidly around workspace management solutions. Ivanti already owned AppSense and back in 2017 RES was joining the party.

What are my options, how can I convert from one to another.

LUNCH, Munch and learn 

Go and make this IT more secure. Do you still remember widely publicized security issues that were found at the beginning of this year in many CPUs? All were hurrying to deploy patches. This time patches were not only for Operating system and applications, but also firmware upgrade was needed. Whole IT security scene was in alert and dreading the moment, when malware using this exploit would be discovered. But what is actually job of a IT security professional? Do we only push administrators to patch servers? Fill in enormous spreadsheets reports, that bring no value? Always publishing new regulations, that change procedures to useless state? Always being smart ass and never guilty, when security issue if detected? NO. There are far more interesting tasks that are to be done, and tasks that are far more useful. Join me on a journey through the most interesting tasks, stories and mishaps of a IT security engineer inside of a enterprise environment. I will not hack you, but there are more than few, who might.
