    MJFChat: Security-hardening Windows Server

    Posted on by Mary Jo Foley in Security, Uncategorized, and Windows Server

    The audio transcript can be found here.

    We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

    In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our community of readers.

    We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

    Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday, August 19, is between me and Orin Thomas, Orin Thomas, Microsoft Principal Cloud Operations Advocate. The general topic of our chat is how to security-harden Windows Server. We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

    Windows Server ships in a mostly secure configuration, but Microsoft has to balance security with backwards compatibility. Thomas has some ideas about things you can do to tighten the security of your Windows Server deployment. And he’s ready to field questions about your own issues around making Windows Server more secure.

    If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected] (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
