Overview

Defeating Advanced Adversaries - a webcast series. Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is end of life in July 2018. Due to customer demand, they decided to roll it into the Windows 10 Fall 2018 Creator's Update as part of Windows Defender Exploit Guard. If you installed this update and already had EMET, you likely noticed that it was automatically deleted to avoid conflict. Granular control for each exploit mitigation per application is possible, as well as audit mode. Join us as we walk through each of these exploit mitigations and discuss their effectiveness.
