Microsoft Inspire: build a foundation of trust and security

Men at laptop

We’re about two weeks out from Microsoft Inspire 2021, the year’s largest partner event that will take place from July 14-15. At Microsoft Inspire, connect with other partners, experts and leaders to discuss Microsoft Cloud and the opportunity it provides for your business growth and profitability. Celebrate innovations and make new discoveries of your own.

We are living in a changed world. Accelerated digital transformation and rapid advances in technology are transforming how people live, work, and learn. We have seen years of digital transformation happen in mere months. And while there is great potential for technology to help address society’s biggest issues, the pace of this change is also raising new challenges and intensifying existing inequities in our communities. The massive shifts in how and where we work have bred new types of threats from cyber bad actors, and the broader adoption of the hybrid workplace is expected to result in additional vulnerabilities.

At Microsoft, we are optimistic about the benefits of technology, but also clear-eyed about the challenges. These concerns are real, and we are committed to earning and sustaining trust with our customers, partners, the communities we serve, and the governments that represent them.

We’re also committed to providing trusted cloud services and platforms to help you meet the ever-evolving needs of your customers and the sessions and discussions that take place during Microsoft Inspire will help your organization create the best security posture. The Microsoft Inspire session catalog is available now so you can learn about the sessions at this year’s event – from executive keynotes to breakout sessions, ask the experts and featured partner table topics.
