IMHO many of the most interesting security labs are actually listed under "Microsoft Windows Server 2003" in the labs - these include IPSec, Group Policy and Rights Management. I've listed the available sessions for both below - just incase my earlier post didn't get your attention these labs are your opportunity to get some hands on practical experience of applying our best practise security advice in a totally safe environment AND IT'S FREE for you to access. Our motivation is simply that we want you to get more value from the investment you've made in our software(primarily Windows, Exchange, SQL and Office). Even if you've only got a few minutes it's well worth picking one of the sessions to see what's there.
