SharePoint Conference 2012: My Session Picks

The first wave of the TITUS crew arrived at SPC12 early this morning (Saturday).  We're getting settled in, registering for the conference and making sure all our stuff arrived.

We're very excited about this show.  We've got some great new features to show in the TITUS SharePoint Security Suite, so please stop by booth #865 if you're interested in talking about SharePoint security and about how TITUS helps you automate and manage it.  Namely, if you're interested in:
  • Securing information in SharePoint at a fine grained level
  • Raising awareness about sensitive content, with automatic visual security labels on Office or PDF documents
  • Enforcing access control policies in SharePoint so that sensitive content can sit beside non-sensitive content
  • Denying access to specific users even if they're part of groups that have access
  • Enforcing security automatically and dynamically using metadata and/or claims and without impacting performance
  • Managing security policies at the site collection, site or library/list levels
  • Auditing permissions and policy administration by administrators

 ...we have some awesome new features to show you!

Using the MySPC site to look over and pick sessions was really helpful, but there is a huge selection and it was really hard to choose from those available.  I've ended up with a session list that looks great, but I've got quite a few overlapping sessions so it'll ultimately be a tough choice to figure out which ones I make it to.  As I've written in a couple of other articles I'm really impressed that about 10% of the 300+ sessions are about security, governance and managing risk within SharePoint.  As you can imagine, most of my session picks fall within that category.  I've also focussed on the speakers that I know to be real experts in their fields - those that I've read extensively and seen present in person.

Here's my larger session list, as it currently stands.  Hopefully this helps some of you focus in on the sessions you want to attend:
