Microsoft takes security class on the road
The software giant is sending executives to 20 cities across the United States to train developers and information system managers in how to better protect their systems. The free events, dubbed Security Summits, are the first step in Microsoft's plan to train 500,000 information technology workers worldwide by the end of this year, according to Mike Nash, vice president for Microsoft's Security Business unit.
"We want to make sure that customers have a security strategy," Nash said. "There were people that got hit with Slammer, and they go away and implement a security plan and then Blaster comes along and they said, 'Wow, that's a nonissue.' The hope (in holding these events) is to skip step one."
