Proactive Security beats Reactive Security with Microsoft MVP, Sami Laiho

Did you see the news about the latest zero-day attack using RTF-files? Yet again an example where no harm is done if you have your proactive security measures are in place. In fact all of the biggest zero-attacks in the last decade have been of such nature that even without an anti-malware solution you could have avoided the worst consequences if you just had your proactive security done right. If a user has admin rights he/she can turn of the protective measures so this is the most important thing to do right and get rid of the excessive user permission. You can control admins with policies can’t you? No, you cannot, and in this session you’ll see how admins can turn off all policies in a heartbeat. After you’re done getting rid of admin rights you need to implement stuff like firewalls, IPsec, Software Resctriction policies and disk encryption. And yes, you also need a reactive solution like an anti-malware on top of the more important proactive measures. Reactive security reacts to found threats as proactive prevents you from getting them in the first place. Join this session and see one of the leading OS and Security Experts, Sami Laiho, show you how to build a proactive security solution that’s always up to date. No longer rely on someone else finding fingerprints and keeping your security up to date!
