Join Our Security Community

Ryan Heffernan

We want you to speak directly to our engineering teams. We believe that the best way to improve our security products is by having no barriers between you and the people that create them. That's why we need your participation in our security community.


As part of our community you can influence our products and get early access to changes by participating in private previews, giving feedback, requesting features, reviewing product roadmaps, joining webinars and calls, or attending in-person events.

We have a general discussion group on LinkedIn called the Microsoft Security Community, where I announce highlights from this site. Please join the group and feel free connect with me


Webinars and Calls

Several of our product teams hold regular webinars or calls where they introduce the product, do a deep dive, preview forthcoming features, gather feedback, and answer questions. Many of these allow you to join private previews. Meeting invitations are posted on the product spaces within the communities. Here are some of our latest webinars:


Azure Advanced Threat Protection:

Azure Sentinel:

Azure Information Protection:

Microsoft Cloud App Security:


Customer Advisory Board (CAB)

We periodically select customers to be part of our Customer Advisory Board (CAB). We form a close relationship with these organizations, inviting them to exclusive, in-person events and giving them access to non-public roadmaps and information. CAB members give in-depth feedback our on products and consequently exert a great deal of influence our plans, priorities, and designs. Part of our criteria for choosing CAB members is how active they are in this community. If you would like to be part of our CAB, join our community, participate heavily, and then reach out to me.
