Unless of course that's the point of the presentation - ongoing improvement,
the importance of patching your boxes, keeping naked installs offline,
slipstreaming patches into fresh installs to mitigate the danger from new
installs etc...

otherwise agreed. I'd also be looking at vulnerabilities in the the
application layer such as SQL injection, Session hijacking, cross-site
scripting, packet sniffing and so on - they're more common than unpatched
IIS boxes by far, and easier to demo exploits on.
