It’s that time of year again. The kids are out of school, most folks are planning for that August vacation, and the MSRC (and Microsoft) are headed to Vegas for Black Hat.
This year’s event will be a new experience for me. Although I’ve been to lots of Black Hat conferences – this is the first time I go wearing both hats of director of MSRC and director of outreach to the security community. It looks like both my teams will be quite busy – checking out the latest research and introducing the MS product development folks to the security community folks. There are so many great presentations on the agenda and so many people catch up with that it will be difficult to figure out how to be in two or three places at once. I am excited that again this year Microsoft will present interesting and new security technologies. We have four speakers this year.
Ian McDonald and Brandon Baker will talk about Windows Server 2008. Ian will cover Windows Server 2008 Server Foundation – the latest in attack surface reduction – you just select the roles for your server. Brandon is slated to give a deep dive into the internals of Windows Server 2008 virtualization.
