The conference will be filled to the brim with practical Active Directory and Microsoft 365 education straight from renowned Microsoft MVPs, other industry experts and your IT peers. The Experts Conference 2023 is your once-a-year chance to get hands-on training, explore industry best practices and hone your skills in IT management, migration, security, auditing and more.

As always, the event is sponsored by Quest Software, your go-to vendor for the most comprehensive set of Microsoft 365 and hybrid management solutions, which have already helped move, manage and secure more than 336 million Active Directory users.

At The Experts Conference, you can create your own unique conference experience by choosing from a wide selection of sessions led by technical and industry experts. TEC 2023 sessions will be grouped into the following three tracks:

  • Microsoft 365 track: Explore security, management and tenant-to-tenant migration related to Microsoft Teams, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Power Platform, and more.
  • Identities track: Dive into everything relating to migration and security of identities, including Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD and Intune.
  • Azure track: Get in-depth training around the security and configuration of Azure and its relationship to identities and Microsoft 365. We’ll cover Azure services, Azure Automation, Microsoft Sentinel (including KQL), and more.

But you’re by no means limited to the sessions in a single track — feel free to mix and match freely to meet your own specific needs at The Experts Conference 2023.

Earn up to 10 CPE credits!

Each technical session is eligible for 1 CPE credit, and each full keynote session is worth 1 CPE credit. Accordingly, if you attend both keynotes and all the live sessions in any track (or any combination of 8 live sessions), you’ll earn 10 CPE credits over the two days of TEC 2023.

Extra opportunity: Hands-on training in hybrid auditing or recovery

Want even more from The Experts Conference 2023? If you’re a Change Auditor or Recovery Manager for Active Directory customer, you’re eligible for a special opportunity: Arrive a day early for an expert-led, hands-on workshop on your choice of Quest solutions:

  • Hybrid auditing solutions (for current Change Auditor users only) — Learn how you can use Change Auditor to detect threats like DCShadow attacks and changes to vital AD attributes like SIDHistory or AdminSDHolder. Quest experts will walk you through blocking changes to vital AD objects like the Domain Admins group and your critical GPOs, as well as how to get alerts whenever someone attempts to make such modifications. We will also explore how to audit your Azure AD with On Demand Audit.
  • Hybrid recovery solutions (for current Recovery Manager for Active Directory users only) — Quest product experts will show exactly how to automate the 40-step process for recovering an AD forest. Plus, you’ll discover how to eliminate the risk of malware re-infection during the recovery process, how to secure and isolate your AD backups, and how to use On Demand Recovery to restore Azure AD items that the Recycle Bin does not cover.

These technical workshops will be led by Quest product experts who really know their stuff. They will step you through common use cases and best practices so you can return to work knowing exactly how to use these solutions to solve your organization’s most pressing problems. Discover new features you may be missing to get even more value from your Quest investments.

With the smaller setting of the pre-conference workshop, you’ll be able to readily network with both Quest experts and other Quest customers. Training includes breakfast, lunch and a post-training happy hour, as well as take-home materials to help you put everything you learned into practice. Check the conference website for more details.
