Abstract

Even if Microsoft was to disappear tomorrow it's estimated it would take at least 15 years for it's presence on the desktop and in the Server room to loosen. Whatever Microsoft does, it cannot be ignored by information security professionals. This workshop features one of Microsoft's leading technologists who will dive into the innovative security features of Windows Vista and Server 2008 and will be outlining some key applications and strategies that Microsoft will be introducing in the months ahead.

The session will be as interactive as the audience wishes as Steve is quite happy taking questions from the floor and adapting the talk based on the majority interest of the audience.

Speaker

Steve has been an information security specialist since 1994, he's highly technical though doesn't loose people in "technobabble". He worked as a consultant for five years and has architected solutions for customers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Steve joined Microsoft back in 2002 and prior to that had sysadmin and development experience across a range of platforms including various forms of UNIX, VMS and Microsoft Windows client and server.

He is particularly interested in the challenges both Virtualisation and GreenIt place on traditional computing platforms.
