Webcast on risk and threats tomorrow
Tomorrow I'll be doing a presentation that while it has SBS 2008 in the title, isn't just about SBS. It's really about Risk assessment.
If you attend I'll be giving away to one lucky random attendee, a copy of Mark Minasi's Securing your Windows Systems CDrom - http://www.minasi.com/seccd/
Who knows, I may throw in a bonus Windows 7 tshirt to a lucky viewer!
