Whatever version of Windows you're using (including Windows 10) you'll likely need to maintain compatibility with older software that the company must use for mission-critical operations, or older hardware that's required for specific purposes, but you don't want to sacrifice security for the sake of compatibility. In this briefbook you'll learn how to maintain optimal compatibility with the older software and devices that you need to use.
