Security

Attending Tech-Ed 2005


I'll be attending Tech-Ed 2005 Monday 6/6 through mid-day

Wednesday 6/8. Last week I used Microsoft's Breakout Sessions Calendar to

organize my TechEd schedule. The tool worked well when using IE, but failed to

function using Firefox--imagine that.


My schedule focuses heavily on the Security track. I'll be attending Gord

Mangione's, VP of Microsoft Security, strategic Security briefing on Monday

morning. According to Microsoft's Tech-Ed Web site, Mangione will discuss "his

perspective on the state of security today, the importance of continued

innovation, and advances in Microsoft's platform, products, and technologies

designed to better protect customers". I'll be interested to hear what

Mangione says about Trustworthy Computing and Windows' support for two-factor

authentication.
