This week I received an exciting email from Microsoft that I was re-awarded for a third year now for the 2020 – 2021 Microsoft Most Valuable (MVP) award in Azure. Receiving the Microsoft MVP award is both a humbling and an exciting experience. It means you’re a member of a select group of experts of just over 2,000 MVPs from around the world, but I like to think of it as doing something I’m passionate about with other like minded individuals, having fun and always having something new to learn and share with the community.
The Microsoft MVP Award is an annual award that recognizes exceptional technology community leaders worldwide who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with users and Microsoft. All of us at Microsoft recognize and appreciate Callon’s extraordinary contributions and want to take this opportunity to share our appreciation with you.

Since becoming a Microsoft MVP, I’ve learned a lot about the community and continued to share my passion, knowledge and experience within the community around Architecture and Development in Azure, DevOps and Serverless technologies. I also keep a keen eye on what’s happening on the data technologies like Cosmos DB and Azure SQL.
I was really looking forward to attending the MVP Summit back in March, but COVID-19 threw a wrench in that plan. Thankfully Microsoft moved the event online and it was still an amazing experience to connect with the product teams and MVPs from around the world – even if it was virtually.
If you’re interested in learning about the Microsoft MVP program and seeing what it takes to become a Microsoft MVP, or how to get awarded, I encourage you to take a look at the Microsoft MVP website and also the following article on “How to become a Microsoft MVP” where they explain some of the details of the program.
To wrap up this post I would like to congratulate all the other newly awarded, or renewed Microsoft MVP’s all over the world! You truly are an amazing community and I’m truly humbled and honored to be part of this group.

Account passwords are historically one of the easiest security measures to hack, be it via ‘Brute Force attacks’ or users have simple passwords that are easy to guess. Attacks on organizations have become more complex over the years, however basic attacks, such as email phishing, that can be done by almost anyone are still a rather effective way of gaining access to an organizations most sensitive information.Multi-factor authentication is the process of identifying users by validating two of more characteristics that are unique to that users
