GEEK WEEK NEWS

GeekWeek 2021 – tracks and classes updated 

Excitement is building with only a month to go until we all meet up at the fantastic Eaglewood Resort & Spa! We are still getting new enrollments but can already promise a diverse group of participants representing many different industries and experiences.

A lot has happened over the past year both when it comes to product updates from Microsoft as well as the need to incorporate security into everything IT. At Truesec, we have built upon our previous experiences by having managed over 100 complex incidents in the past 12 months. Due to this, we have updated the tracks and the content to fully reflect our latest experiences and the latest product updates.

We are looking forward to a fabulous week together focusing on tech, cybersecurity, and IT automation! See you there!



What is Microsoft 365? 
– A deep dive With Stephen Rose, Microsoft

Microsoft 365 lets individuals, teams and organizations be productive from anywhere, on any device, securely. In this session we will deep dive into the produces and features that make up the Windows, Office and Security features in Microsoft 365.

We are pleased to have the Microsoft marketer, storyteller and evangelist Stephen Rose as guest speaker at the Geek Week in Chicago. Since 2009 Stephen has led IT pro product marketing for a wide variety of products at Microsoft including Windows, Surface, Office 365 and OneDrive. He now sits in the marketing and storytelling for the Microsoft 365 team which brings his career full circle. Stephen holds over 20 technical certifications and been certified since Windows NT 4.0 and (sadly) still remembers what an IRQ is.  It is also possible that Stephen may be the last living member of the Columbia House Record and Tape club. Stephen is guesting Geek Week US
