About SecurityPFE

SecurityPFE   Jon Shectman


I am a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer working in the area of Security. This is my blog to share Security insights from real-world situations that I encounter working with Premier customers. I'll share insights around Credential Theft Mitigation, Modern Defense Strategies, Credential Hygiene, and similar topics.

With my busy schedule of helping customers, I pledge to post deep and relevant content to this blog once a month. If your company is a Premier customer, then I would be delighted to visit your company and work with you on your Security Journey. Please contact your TAM or Account Team.
