  • When checking e-mail at an Internet café or shopping for a gift on a family PC, you don't want to leave any trace of specific web browsing activity. InPrivate Browsing in Internet Explorer 8 helps prevent your browsing history, temporary Internet files, form data, cookies, and usernames and passwords from being retained by the browser, leaving no evidence of your browsing or search history.You can start InPrivate Browsing by opening a new tab and selecting Browse with InPrivate or selecting it from the Safety button on the top right corner of the browser window. Once you complete this action, Internet Explorer 8 will launch a new browser session that won't record any information, including searches or webpage visits. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, simply close the browser window.Peace of mind for parents: If parental controls are activated, InPrivate Browsing is disabled.  InPrivate FilteringToday websites increasingly pull content in from multiple sources, providing tremendous value to consumer and sites alike. Users are often not aware that some content, images, ads and analytics are being provided from third party websites or that these websites have the ability to potentially track their behavior across multiple websites. InPrivate Filtering provides users an added level of control and choice about the information that third party websites can potentially use to track browsing activity.InPrivate Filtering is off by default and must be enabled on a per-session basis. To use this feature, select InPrivate Filtering from the Safety menu. To access and manage different filtering options for Internet Explorer 8, select InPrivate Filtering Settings from the Safety menu. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, simply close the browser window.Note: Because InPrivate Filtering is designed to watch for and block only third-party content that appears with a high frequency across sites you visit, no content is blocked until such levels are detected, nor is any such content blocked which is served directly by the site you are visiting.Depending on your web browsing activity and sites visited, the amount of time it can take before such content is automatically blocked can vary widely. However, at any time, you can customize which third-party content is blocked or allowed in the InPrivate Filtering Settings option from the Safety menu.Enhanced delete browsing historyNow when deleting browsing history, you can choose to preserve cookies and temporary Internet files for sites in your Favorites folder. This helps to protect your information and privacy while preserving your data on your trusted favorite sites. Your preferences and cookies are preserved, helping you to get to your trusted sites faster with greater confidence.Tab isolationIf a website or add-on causes a tab to crash in Internet Explorer 8, only that tab is affected. The browser itself remains stable and other tabs remain unaffected, thereby minimizing any disruption to your browsing experience.Crash recoveryIf one or more of your tabs unexpectedly closes or crashes, your tabs are automatically reloaded and you are returned to the site you were on before the crash.

  • Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.Microsoft Security Essentials is a free* download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times.It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.When y are red … y have a problem!Windows Defender detects and removes spywareWindows Defender is software that helps protect your computer against pop-ups, slow performance, and security threats caused by spyware and other unwanted software by detecting and removing known spyware from your computer. Windows Defender features Real-Time Protection, a monitoring system that recommends actions against spyware when it's detected, minimizes interruptions, and helps you stay productive.The benefits of installing Windows Defender include:Spyware detection and removalWindows Defender quickly and easily finds spyware and other unwanted programs that can slow down your computer, display annoying pop-up ads, change Internet settings, or use your private information without your consent.Windows Defender eliminates detected spyware easily at your direction, and if you inadvertently remove programs that you actually want, it's easy to get them back.Windows Defender allows you to schedule your scanning and removal times when it's convenient for you, whether it's on-demand or on a schedule that you set.Improved Internet browsing safetyWindows Defender helps stop spyware before it infiltrates your computer. Windows Defender also offers a continuous safeguard designed to target all the ways that spyware can infiltrate your computer.Windows Defender works without distracting you. It runs in the background and automatically handles spyware based on preferences that you set. You can use your computer with minimal interruption.Protection against the latest threatsA dedicated team of Microsoft researchers continuously searches the Internet to discover new spyware and develop methods to counteract it.A voluntary, worldwide network of Windows Defender users helps Microsoft determine which suspicious programs to classify as spyware. Participants help discover new threats quickly and notify Microsoft analysts, so that everyone is better protected. Anyone who uses Windows Defender can join this network and help report potential spyware to Microsoft.To help protect your computer from the latest threats, you can choose to have updates that counteract new spyware automatically downloaded to your computer.
  • 2. Defending sensitive data is the most important area we’ll talk about today. There are four basic strategies:Think before entering sensitive data on Web sites.Be suspicious of attachments and links. Know what phishing and scams look like.Create strong passwords.
  • For starters, before you enter sensitive data on a Web form or page, look for two things:1. Signs that the site uses data encryption: https (“s” is for secure).A closed padlock. It must be here, beside the Web address, or in the lower right corner of the window. 2. Signs of a trusted site, such as the green address bar in Windows® Internet Explorer®. The graphic in the slide shows what each of those things looks like in your browser.That’s the first strategy for protecting sensitive information. Another precaution you can take is to think before you click.
  • BE SUSPICIOUS OF ATTACHMENTS AND LINKS. There are several reasons to use caution: Senders can be phony. A virus (the colds and flu of computing, designed to spread to other computers) may have sent the mail you just received.Spyware can hide in e-mail attachments. Open one and you may download spyware which can track what you do on your computer. It may enable criminals to collect company or personal information, record account numbers and passwords as you type, or bombard you with pop-up ads.Click links or download videos and photos and you could be downloading a virus along with them. Links can go to phony Web sites.Toll-free numbers can go to fraudulent call centers.Keep in mind: If you click, you catch. MESSAGES ON SOCIAL SITES:Just because the e-mail message says it’s a LinkedIn update, doesn’t mean it is.Messages you get when you’re using a social site such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter can have viruses or be trying to entice you to divulge sensitive information, too. TO REPEAT: “THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK” IS A BEST PRACTICE FOR PROTECTING SENSITIVE DATA, but you also need to be on the lookout for scams and fraud in e-mail and instant messages.
  • Phishing scams, for example, are a sneaky form of spam designed by criminals to fool us.It can look like a message from a company you trust—supplier or company’s bank, even from within your own company. It may ask you to reveal sensitive data.It can be very convincing.To protect yourself, LEARN THE SIGNS OF PHISHING: Alarmist messages: When we’re alarmed, we sometimes put our suspicions aside.“Your account will be closed if we don’t hear from you.”“A virus has corrupted our database. Please re-confirm your information NOW.”Misspellings and grammatical errors.If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Requests for sensitive info (for example, account numbers or help in “transferring funds.”)It’s important to note that reputable companies DON’T send e-mail that asks for sensitive info.DON’T THINK THAT YOU CAN BE FOOLED? WOULD YOU FALL FOR THIS?A newly-hired COO received e-mail from what looked like his company’s travel agency. He was asked to click the link and make sure his details were accurate.He did and went to an official-looking site where he found his personal data.He was asked to download software that would link his Outlook e-mail account to the travel agency’s booking system. In so doing, he downloaded Trojan horse malware which spread quickly through his new company.THOSE ARE SOME OF THE PHISHING TRICKS. Staying alert to the warning signs is your first defense. But what else can you do if you get a suspicious message?
  • CONFIRM WITH THE SENDER THAT THE E-MAIL OR INSTANT MESSAGE IS REALCall the company using a number you already have for it.Or check it against what you find on Bing, Google, or an online phone directory.To visit the site, TYPE THE WEB ADDRESS YOURSELF instead of clicking the link in the message.Or, use your own bookmark or favorite.USE A BROWSER WITH SAFETY FEATURESSuch as the anti-phishing feature (SmartScreen® Filter) and the pop-up blocker that’s on by default in Internet Explorer 8.If you’re ever in doubt about a site, consult a Web site that identifies known scams:Such as www.snopes.com.Another way to protect sensitive data is to use strong passwords.
  • The new SmartScreen filter and other built-in security features help you stay safe by protecting against deceptive and malicious websites which can compromise your data, privacy, and identity.Since we launched IE8 in March 2009, SmartScreen has blocked over 560 million attempts to download malware, recently averaging over 3 million blocks per day! Hosted in datacenters around the world, SmartScreen’s URL Reputation Service (URS) has evaluated over 250 billion URLs to help keep IE8 users safe from malware. Even more impressively, since IE7’s Phishing Filter was introduced in 2005, the URS has processed over 5.7 trillion requests to block malicious web sites. Every day, Microsoft receives around 300 million telemetry reports from IE8 users and processes 4.1 billion URLs looking for malicious websites and files. On the back end, our systems and analysts evaluate over 1 terabyte of binaries every day to help identify sites delivering malware.The Q1 2010 NSS Lab’s test shows that Microsoft’s continued investment in SmartScreen is paying off. Since launch, IE8’s SmartScreen Filter has continued to improve its protection against Socially Engineered Malware threats.
  • SmartScreenCybercriminals continue to rely on deceptive social engineering attacks to prey on unsuspecting web users. Whether it's via an email that appears to be from your bank, a search result for popular content such as games and movies, an advertisement or a link in an instant message promising free stuff, or a fake notification from a social networking site, there is virtually no trick they haven't tried. We developed the SmartScreen filter for Internet Explorer 8 so you can browse with more confidence – knowing you have a greater chance of being protected when you are targeted by one of these attacks.The SmartScreen filter is a set of technologies designed to help protect users from evolving web and social engineering threats. If the SmartScreen filter detects a malicious website, Internet Explorer 8 will block the entire site. It can also provide a "surgical block" of malware or phishing hosted on legitimate websites – blocking just the malicious content without affecting the rest of the site.Another new feature we have added is protection from malicious downloads – if you attempt a download that has been reported as unsafe, Internet Explorer 8 will block and warn you about that as well. Of course, you'll still have the option to continue with the download if you're certain that it is safe.This download has been blocked by the SmartScreen filterWhile we recommend all users keep the SmartScreen turned on, you can enable or disable it at any time. You can also help improve the web for everyone by reporting suspected malicious sites.Since we launched IE8 in March 2009, SmartScreen has blocked over 560 million attempts to download malware, recently averaging over 3 million blocks per day! Hosted in datacenters around the world, SmartScreen’s URL Reputation Service (URS) has evaluated over 250 billion URLs to help keep IE8 users safe from malware. Even more impressively, since IE7’s Phishing Filter was introduced in 2005, the URS has processed over 5.7 trillion requests to block malicious web sites. Every day, Microsoft receives around 300 million telemetry reports from IE8 users and processes 4.1 billion URLs looking for malicious websites and files.

Since launch, IE8’s SmartScreen Filter has continued to improve its protection against Socially Engineered Malware threats.
  • Cross Site Scripting (XSS) FilterCross-site scripting attacks try to exploit vulnerabilities in the websites you use. In this attack, you might receive an email that contains a tampered website address. Once you click on the link, you are directed to a legitimate website that has been compromised to contain malicious content that can capture keystrokes and record your login and password. These attacks have emerged as a leading online threat so Internet Explorer 8 includes a cross-site scripting filter that can detect these types of attacks and disable the harmful scripts. Unlike other web browsers, Internet Explorer 8 offers this protection right out of the box, and turned on by default.Click-jacking is an emerging online threat where an attacker's webpage deceives you into clicking on content from another website without you realizing it. For example, it might hide a legitimate webpage as a "frame" inside a malicious page. When you click in the malicious page, you're actually clicking on something else: buying something from the site, changing some settings on your browser or computer, or viewing advertisements that cybercriminals get paid for. It's a complicated attack, but Internet Explorer 8 allows website developers to protect their sites from these kinds of attacks by preventing their legitimate pages from being "framed."Domain HighlightingInternet Explorer 8 is the first browser to provide domain highlighting, so you always know which website you're visiting. Domain Highlighting lets you more easily interpret web addresses (URLs) to help you avoid deceptive and phishing sites that attempt to trick you with misleading addresses. It does this by highlighting the domain name in the address bar in black, with the remainder of the URL string in gray, making for easier identification of the sites true identity.Data Execution Prevention (DEP)Data Execution Prevention (DEP), on by default in Internet Explorer 8 in Windows Vista Service Pack 1, is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats by preventing certain types of code from writing to executable memory space
  • You lock your house, your car, your bike. You also need to lock up corporate assets, client info, accounts, computers, mobile phones, etc. To do this on your computer:KEEP PASSWORDS SECRETIf stolen, everything they protect is at risk. Don’t share them with friends, colleagues, or businesses.Don’t use the same password (or simple variations) for different accounts or services.Don’t store passwords on your phone or in a file on your computer or on a post-it on your computer. It’s okay to store them on a well-hidden sheet of paper.Don’t let someone trick you into revealing them.CHANGE THEM OFTEN: Change the important ones regularly—like the one for your computer or mobile phone.MAKE THEM STRONGAt least eight characters. Upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols.Easy for you to remember and hard for others to guess.Avoid number sequences, your pet’s name, birth date, Social Security numbers, and the like. Don’t use words that you can find in the dictionary.Avoid using only look-alike substitutions of numbers or symbols.Choose a sentence that’s easy to remember and difficult for others to guess and use it as the basis of a password. (See below for an idea about how to present this.)CUSTOMIZING THE PRESENTATION: Ask the group to create a phrase that’s eight words or longer—like the first line of a favorite song. Take the first letter of each word to make the password. Substitute numbers or symbols for some of the letters—like “3” for “E” or “!” for “L.”
  • CUSTOMIZING THIS PRESENTATIONThis is an opportunity for the audience to test their password knowledge. There are several ways you can handle this:If you have a white board or flip chart, you can do this as a group activity: One password at a time, ask the group to decide whether it’s strong or not and discuss why.If people have paper and pen, ask everyone to do this as a task either by themselves or in pairs.Or simply give everyone a minute or two to think about which of these are strong, and which weak. When you’re ready to see the results, go to the next slide.
  • EXPLAINING THE ANSWERS:WEAK. Only numbers, possibly a Social Security number, which criminals can easily find online.WEAK. A date—birth or anniversary date, for example—can be known and easily found by a criminal.WEAK. Don’t use words you can find in any dictionary in any language (expeditious). Criminals will not be fooled by common look-alike replacements such as “3” for “e”.STRONG. Letters, symbols, numbers, not a word found in the dictionary.WEAK. Only numbers. Avoid sequences (or repeated numbers, like 22222222).STRONG. A sentence that’s easy to remember, but difficult for others to guess. Eight characters or longer.Take the first letters of this sentence: My son Aiden was 3 years Old in December. Add complexity by mixing upper and lower case letters, symbols, and numbers.Having reviewed many ways you can protect sensitive information, let’s look at the third way to avoid a bad day…
  • …protecting devices when you’re away from workThese include laptops, thumb drives (USB or flash drives), mobile phones.DO YOUR DEVICES HAVE THE LATEST PROTECTION?Make it part of your travel routine. Update before you leave.GUARD YOUR DEVICES LIKE YOU DO YOUR WALLET.For example, lock your mobile phone when you’re not using it. DON’T HAND-CARRY SENSITIVE DATA.On your laptop or thumb drive.It’s not worth the risk. If you lose it, anyone can access it.If you must take sensitive data, encrypt it. However, encryption only slows access to data; it doesn’t prevent access from a determined hacker after really valuable data.IF YOU USE YOUR THUMB DRIVE IN ANOTHER COMPUTER:That computer may be infected and could corrupt the thumb drive and ultimately your computer.When you re-insert the drive into your computer, click the Close button in any message that pops up so you don’t give any malware a chance to run.But you need to do more than protect the physical devices when you’re on the road…
  • BitLocker helps keep everything from documents to passwords safer by encrypting the entire drive that Windows and your data reside on. Once BitLocker is turned on, any file you save on that drive is encrypted automatically.BitLocker To Go—a new feature of Windows 7—gives the lockdown treatment to easily-misplaced portable storage devices like USB flash drives and external hard drives.
  • …Wireless hotspots can be risky, so here are ways to connect to the Web more safely: CONNECT SECURELY. Choose:The most secure connection, even if it means paying for it. Ask about it before you connect.WEP (at least) that encrypts (or scrambles) data as it travels between your laptop and the wireless access point. (WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. It is a system of data encryption that prevents access to a wireless network.) A password-protected connection, ideally one that is unique for your use.KNOW WHO YOU’RE CONNECTING TOConfirm the exact spelling of the network you’re connecting to. Beware of clever (slightly misspelled) fakes. For example: HLTONHOTELSNET vs. HILTONHOTELSNET. (There’s no “I” in the first Hilton.)Check the privacy statement on the network's Web site. No privacy statement? Wait until you return to the office to conduct sensitive business.SAVE SENSITIVE USES FOR MORE TRUSTED CONNECTIONSDon’t bank or make other financial transactions at a wireless hotspot.Don’t download, install, or update software.Use e-mail with the understanding that it can open the door to illegal access to corporate networks and data.Turn off the wireless connection when you’re not using it.
  • INFECTED PCDespite all our best efforts, sometimes a virus or spyware can slip through. How would you know?Your computer exhibits unusual behavior: slows to a crawl, crashes often. Programs don’t save files properly. And so on.
