Microsoft Security Intelligence Report


The latest intelligence on the threat landscape.

The Microsoft Security Intelligence Report (SIR) provides an in-depth perspective on the changing threat landscape including software vulnerability disclosures and exploits, malicious software (malware), and potentially unwanted software. Each individual report focuses on data and trends observed in either the first or second half of each calendar year and uses historical data to provide context. The purpose of the SIR is to keep Microsoft’s customers informed of the major trends in the threat landscape and to provide valuable insights and security guidance designed to help customers improve their security posture in the face of these threats.

Security Strategy Briefing

Security is a large concern of most Enterprises. This session will outline Microsoft’s security strategy, including our assessment of today’s threat environment, and where we are investing going forward. Discussion will include Microsoft’s proactive and reactive strategies, and the relationship of security investments to Microsoft’s TrustWorthy Computing initiatives. The session will also lead an interactive discussion around Microsoft security strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats from the customer perspective.
