What's New in Windows 8 and Server 2012?

  • Jason Fossen

Windows 8 and Server 2012 are major new releases, and the stakes for Microsoft are huge. Windows 8 is more than just a new touch-oriented graphical interface, it's a new direction for Microsoft as a whole. Come join the author of the Securing Windows course at SANS (SEC505) for an overview of the most important changes, especially for security, such as Windows on ARM tablets, booting from USB flash drives, Microsoft Account integration, secure boot with UEFI firmware, Metro Internet Explorer, picture password logon, and more. Will Windows 8 make or break Microsoft? Will iPad and Android fall before the Windows 8 juggernaut? Come and see!
