SANS - Survey on application security programs

Video What's the next desktop upgrade going to be? A hardware refresh? A new version of Microsoft Office? Windows 7? Or an upgrade to all three at once?

Is this mega-grade-upgrade a triple threat to the mental health of your users, or a once-in-a-decade opportunity to sort out their desktops for the better?

Andrew Buss of Freeform Dynamics and Intel's Rob Sheppard think the three-in-one approach is potentially a good idea - and that a hardware-plus-Windows refresh might sort out some of the laptop performance problems that have made the working lives of some Reg readers an encrypted, batteryless hell.

In this video, the two of them, plus our regular host with the most, Tim Phillips, discuss these challenges and share some of the insights on how to tackle them received from our beloved Reg readers. You can watch it for free right here ®.
