There are a whole host of TechNet events coming over the next couple of months, covering a variety of different topics. These events are free and are not meant to be sales-focused: they are technical 'how-to' sessions. One thing I will say around TechNet events is that if you have any comments, good or bad, after attending an event, please let us know and we can act accordingly! Thanks!

31 January 2007, London: Windows Vista System Integrity Technologies
Historically, operating systems have lived in their own little bubbles of trust. Every part of an operating system assumed that every other part was exactly what it claimed to be and performed only what it claimed it could do. Recent attacks, though, have shown that such implicit trust is no longer suitable for computers that connect to hostile environments. In this session, Steve Lamb introduces the security features in Windows Vista and shows how they help to prevent these environments taking over your computer.
