Admittedly the vast majority of my technical background is on the Windows side. Like many of you I’ve spent years in the field and through training courses improving my Windows skills and gathering a bunch of certifications from Microsoft. Windows is powerful and ubiquitous.

He made an unusual statement, “We don’t use antivirus.” Having been in IT and cybersecurity for many years I knew this was eventually coming, but it was the first time I’d seen it in a real-world implementation.
