In this session, you will see how to implement encrypted OS drives and USB sticks for different security levels.
Security is always a compromise between security, usability and cost. With BitLocker you can build a usable and secure implementation that's included in the price! Sami has been implementing BitLocker in hundreds of companies and in this session, he will show you how to use BitLocker effectively in Windows 7 and 8.1 environments. Did you know that with 8.1, Microsoft actually suggests that a secure BitLocker be built without any PIN code or a USB stick? In this session, you will see how to implement encrypted OS drives and USB sticks for different security levels. Microsoft often says you need MDOP licenses to get MBAM for BitLocker to be administered effectively but Sami disagrees. Sami will show you how to change PIN codes without Admin rights on Windows 7 and how to build a BulletProof BitLocker in Windows 8.1 without the PIN code in the first place.
You will learn:
- How to build a bulletproof BitLocker implementation and how to effectively manage it
- How to make BitLocker in Windows 7 easier to manage
- How to troubleshoot BitLocker
