On February 19, 2009 there was a user group meeting held by the OWSUG in downtown Ottawa. The meeting was themed “Ask your Peers” where a panel of Microsoft experts were present to address questions about technology in general.
Out of that, it was apparent that patching and Security were at the forefront of the minds of Ottawa ITPRO’s.
After the meeting, the OWSUG execs and some members, went out for a few pints with the Microsoft ITPRO’s who attended.
The Microsoft guys, asked us for feedback and ways to package information in an easily digestible fashion in order to increase awareness and understanding of Security Updates and patching.
The idea of the audio cast or “podcast” came out.
The MS ITPRO’s, went back to the cave with this info :-)
As a result, the 3 Ottawa Microsoft guys got busy making the first podcast.
Here it is!
“Security Bulletins for the regular IT guy” Podcast – 03/10/2009
ITPRO evangelist Rick Claus narrates as Senior technical account manager Pierre Roman and principal security advisor Bruce Cowper attack the 3 security updates released at March 3rd, 2009 in an easily digestible fashion.
Way to go guys!
