Why Windows Vista is Better than Your O/S
Today is a big day for Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing team! It's the release of the Windows Vista One Year Vulnerability Report composed by my good friend and teammate, Jeff Jones . First let me just put to rest any kind " of course it's favorable...it's written by Microsoft " kinda stuff that I know...

Securing the Small Business and Good Bye Tech-Ed 2007 <sniff>
Well it's over. In the bag. Kaput. Tech-Ed 2007 is finally finished. To be honest, I'm actually pleasantly surprised that so many of you stuck around for the last day. Considering that my session went up against Mark Russinovich's session, I'm glad we got the turn out that we did. Great testament to...

Economic Espionage: Mitigating with Technical Methods
So we're all technical folks...and we all like to use technical solutions to fix problems. I'm tellin ya, without the proper non-technical controls I mentioned earlier....you're dead in the water. Can't have bacon without eggs and peanut butter without jelly. It's just incomplete. I'm telling you now...

Well, I'm back from vacation to England. Very cool, but let's get back to what this blog is about: Security . So you got data leaving the business without permission? We all love to think the firewalls are being penterated by the 16-year old in the black Metallica "Ride the Lightning" concert shirt....

This is laughable.
Okay, I don't apparently need to hunt for any security topic. They just find me. There is one company (and CEO) that just continue to amaze with their statements. Does anyone take this guy seriously? Yes, it's Symantec again. Today at the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany, their CEO, John Thompson...

Here we go again....
Again, please correct me if this recent report seems to be a bit self-serving. The jist of this report is saying, " Yeah...Vista is good...but it's not perfect....what would make it perfect is the use of some 3rd party security stuff...umm...like our 3rd party stuff ". Is this really news ? I completely...

Convincing Your Boss to Move to Windows Vista (Part 2)...second attempt
(Trying this again, after apparently overwriting my earlier blog post....troubleshooting blogs...fun times) Well, I am long overdue in posting this and I apologize.

Canada: Day 2 - Quebec City
My boss was right: You should go to Brazil in the winter and Canada in the summer. I thought I could endure. I've been to survival training, I've frozen my butt off in Dahlonega, Georgia in Mountain Phase of Ranger School . Nothing prepares you for the cold of Quebec. As the cabbie told me as I drove...

Canada: Day 1 - Montreal
Holy crap it's cooooold . I'm certainly no lightweight when it comes to enduring cold...I'm from Wisconsin, I love the snow and ice, I play ice hockey, and I love to snowboard. I'm the guy who is walking around in a t-shirt when everyone else is wearing a jacket and sweater. I love it. I have to tell...

Convincing Your Boss to Move to Windows Vista (Part 2)
Well, I am long overdue in posting this and I apologize. As many of you are aware, I spend about 70% of my time on the road doing international travel, so I'm usually trying to figure out how to say, "Take me to the < insert hotel chain here > hotel" in French or trying to figure out what visas...

People like this just frost me: Security considered a burden for users
So I want to take a second to vent. First, I recognize that I work for Microsoft and before the whole Trustworthy Computing thing (which hit it's 5 year anniversary this week) the concept of security and Microsoft was the brunt of several jokes. Not hurting my feelings....we needed those of you in the...

Honey....have you seen my keys?
Well, it happens sooner or later. Someone (probably you) ends up setting your keys somewhere and then spend the next 20 minutes destroying your house looking for them. I actually had a friend who left in his keys inside the refrigerator once. Sad. When we're talking about recovery keys for your most...
