I read the following on Microsoft IT Pro Evanvgelist Jeff Alexander’s blog :
Do you have email systems? Do you use desktop applications like Microsoft Office? We all do right? Collaboration tools are an essential part of our working life today. Unfortunately the bad guys know this as well so they are regularly targeting organizations that use these collaboration tools. As a result IT Pro’s are concerned about users opening back doors to attackers by simply opening an email attachment, running a macro or using add-ins that contain viruses or other malicious software.
The 2007 Microsoft Office release is the most secure version of Office we have released to date and comes with many new security features. To help customers deploy these features quickly and easily we have released the
2007 Microsoft Office Security Guide. The guide is based on real-world experience from key customers, government agencies and Microsoft security experts. We also include a GPO Accelerator tool as part of the guide that will allow you to deploy Office security settings in minutes not days!
So if you are in the middle of a deployment or are about to deploy check out this guide because it will save you heaps of time!
