Windows Vista Security Explained (Presentation)

On February 8, 2007, I presented the first of two Windows Vista security Web seminars. This one, Windows Vista Security Explained, is an overview of Microsoft's security innovations and features in Windows Vista, including User Account Protection, BitLocker Drive Encryption and EFS, Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, Windows Security Center, Internet Explorer 7, and much more. I also discussed low-level security technologies in Windows Vista such as the Address Space Layout Randomizer and x64-specific security features, and discuss how PC security has changed since Windows XP, with a look at how third party security solutions are evolving to meet these needs.

I'll post my notes and Q & A answers shortly as well.
