    This meeting is certainly going to be of assistance to me; I knew that BitLocker was a good tool, but I've always been scared to turn it on LOL.

      Katherine, I'm thrilled you're coming. I too used to fear disk encryption. I hope my presentation will alleviate some of that fear.

    Can't make this meeting unfortunately. This is a great topic and am sorry to miss it. I've used BitLocker on stand alone machines with TPM, and it works very well. But it is definitely important to understand the impact it has.
