Windows 11 Security — Our Hacker-in-Chief Runs Attacks and Shows Solutions


  • Staff
Stay ahead of external and internal threats — and balance performance, reliability, and security with Windows 11. Dave Weston, Windows security expert, joins Jeremy Chapman to share the rationale behind hardware requirements and how they provide significantly more protection against today’s most sophisticated malware and attacks.

Cyber attacks are at an all time high. Many of the optional or high-end security controls from Windows 10 are now on by default and required on new machines with Windows 11. The Zero Trust security model is baked into Windows 11, from the silicon on the board itself, to the actual boot process, your login as a user, and the apps you use in your Windows session every day.
  • See the sites that hackers use, and find out if your organization is exposed.
  • Protect Windows from remote and in-person attacks with Virtualization-based Security.
  • UEFI, Secure Boot and Trusted Boot stop rootkits or bootkits.
  • Secure encryption keys, user credentials, and sensitive data behind a hardware barrier. Windows 11 requires TPM 2.0 on new installs by default.

QUICK LINKS:​

12:08 — UEFI, Secure Boot, and Trusted Boot
14:27 — Proof it works

He isn't hacking hard enough. Everything can be broken 😂

Very good demonstration. I have all those features enabled on my Ryzen laptop. Haven't seen any real performance decrease either, even if my CPU is just a 1st gen. Ryzen.

I wonder what the NSA & GCHQ think of Windows 11 security and what deals they have done with Microsoft behind the scenes?

Brink, you beat me to it. Very interesting video as I have never bothered to see how easy it is to get hacked and what can be done to a compromised PC. Worth the watch!

Most unsophisticated hackers will go after the easily cracked, low-hanging fruit first and leave the heavy stuff to the few that have a specific target in mind. "drive-by hacking" is what we are protecting ourselves from, like leaving your doors unlocked. Funny that my doors to my house ARE unlocked, heh.
