You walk by a user’s desk and it looks like they’re busily working in Microsoft Outlook. That’s great! You installed Outlook for company productivity. But on second glance, you notice they are looking at their Facebook page – but from within Outlook. How can this be!? You need LOCKDOWN and you’ll get it with Lockdown Guru James Conrad. Microsoft Office 2010 now includes the Outlook Social Connector that integrates social networking with Outlook. That’s just wonderful. Now, you have to figure out a way to lock it down so users don’t use this feature. In addition, you’ll need to figure out how to lock down a great many other settings that potentially could open users’ systems to security vulnerabilities. This session shows you key settings and how to centrally control nearly every aspect of Microsoft Office!
