Welcome to another episode of Techknow, the podcast in which Sophos experts debate, explore and explain the often baffling world of computer security.
Don’t worry: even if you have computers that you simply won’t be able to update in time, for example because they run bespoke industrial control software, or a legacy financial application, Duck and Chet have some healthy suggestions for you.
They also share some insights into why Microsoft hasn’t simply packed all the improved security components from Windows 7 and 8 into the aging XP, leading to the 08 April 2014 deadline.
If you’re still wrestling with making the switch away from XP, this podcast will give you some handy tips for the future; if you’ve already out in the time and effort to move, listen and be reassured that the experts think you’ve done the right thing!
