In 2011, I presented at the Alliance Technologies tech conference on security and virtual desktops.  I continued my “natural security” theme.  The presentation was limited to about 40 minutes plus questions.  It is aimed at IT managers and directors, though hopefully C-level individuals can also get something out of it.

This presentation introduces some basic security concepts, reviews the current environment and then reviews four recent attacks.  After that, it launches into the security topics of hardening, patching, malware prevention, network protection and data protection.  The presentation itself is available as 2011-VirtualDesktops. To view it properly, you will need Open Office or Libre Office. It can be opened in the latest version of PowerPoint, but animations and layout may be less than ideal.

My presentations are increasingly visual, so for a more complete view of the information conveyed, please see the “notes” section.
