ISSA Ireland are hosting a special event next Wednesday the 10th of June.  The event is being run in conjunction with Microsoft and will focus on the security features of the Windows platforms.  There are some really good talks lined up which will prove to be very useful to those of you charged with securing a Windows environment.  In these days of recession and cut backs you will find out about some of the inherent security features of Windows that you can employ at little or no cost and perhaps save you having to purchase third party tools.

The talks are;

  • Security Improvements in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008
  • How Microsoft Manages Information Security
  • Microsoft’s Malware Research: Conficker a Case Study

There will also be series of lighting talks given by members on their favourite free security tools for the Windows platform.

The event will kick off at 2 p.m. and finish at 5 p.m.  It will be held in the Academy Buildingat 42 Pearse St.  More details of the location can be found on the Academy‘s website or see the map below.  To register for the event you should go to the ISSA Ireland website.

If you cannot make it to the event, or even if you can, and want more information on how to use the security features of Windows don’t forget that I cover these in detail in my latest book, “Implementing ISO 27001 In a Windows Environment“.  The book is available from either Amazon or the IT Governance Website.
