In this interview I sat down with Tim Rains, Group Product Manager from the Trustworthy Computing Group. Tim discusses the Security Intelligence Report and its relevance to the IT Professional. He also describes Botnets – what they are, how computers get infected and how to protect yourself and your organization.

There are roughly ten parts to this video series and I’ll blog them weekly as we publish them to edge.technet.com.  Be sure to checkout the SIR portal at http://microsoft.com/sir.
