Click through for five steps organizations should take if they are unable to migrate all Windows XP systems before the April 8, 2014 EOL deadline, as identified by AlienVault.

There is an increasing amount of buzz around Microsoft's upcoming plan to stop releasing security patches for Windows XP. While the majority of the noise is doom and gloom, it becomes important to look at this from a practical perspective to figure out what an organization can do to see itself through this transition smoothly and safely.

As hard as IT teams try, they may not be able to migrate all Windows XP machines to Windows 7. Whether it is due to holdout executives who try to avoid change, or to software on ATMs, point-of-sale systems and in critical infrastructures that currently only support XP, organizations will be left with a number of Windows XP machines after the drop date on April 8, 2014.

In this slideshow, AlienVault, provider of unified security management solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, will examine the five steps that an organization should take in order to mitigate the risks, even after they stop receiving the Windows XP security updates.
