Figure 18-14: Configure BitLocker To Go with a password.
This chapter is about making what Microsoft is calling “the most secure
operating system ever released” even more secure. First, I talked about active ways to
protect your computer by keeping up on the latest news and trends and making
sure that your computer is up to date on the latest security patches. Then I showed
you how to configure User Account Control in a way that balances usability
and security by creating a separate configuration administration account while
running as a standard user the majority of the time. Finally, I covered the two
different types of encryption available in Windows 8: file level and drive level
with BitLocker Drive Encryption.
The next chapter builds on the secure foundation this chapter created by
showing you how to protect your computer from attackers getting in over the
Internet. I show you how you can configure hidden firewall settings to turn on
the two-way firewall that is normally turned off. Then I go over the latest tools
to fight spyware and viruses.
