Windows 8 was a flop, so will the second try be the charm? Microsoft intends Windows 10 to be a universal platform (PCs, tablets, phones, etc.) to run universal apps. The graphical interface of Windows 8 made that OS undeployable, so will users prefer the Windows 10 desktop over Windows 7? This session will lay out what's new in Windows 10, with an emphasis on security and enterprise management, such as Windows Hello, Passport, Cortana, and running LSASS.EXE in a separate virtual machine. The speaker, Jason Fossen, is a SANS Institute Fellow and author of the SANS Securing Windows course (http://sans.org/SEC505). Windows Server 2016 will also soon be available, so we'll also cover what's new and interesting on the server side too, such as Virtual TPM chips in Hyper-V client VMs. There is a lot more to Windows 10 than just the return of the Start Menu, so come see!
