Hi! I’m Richie Lai and I’m a lead on the Microsoft Secure Windows Initiative (SWI) team. One of the things our team does is work side by side with the program managers of the MSRC, so they invited us to guest blog. While MSRC may be the most visible face of security at Microsoft, the SWI team plays a complementary role in securing our products.
Organizationally, SWI is under the direction of Microsoft’s Director of Security Engineering, Matt Thomlinson. This organization is responsible for several important security functions spanning almost all products that Microsoft ships. These functions are:
In the future you will see more of SWI – we want everyone to know we’re here and that we provide value “in the box” with Microsoft software. For a sample of some of the great work coming out of SWI, take a look at Analyzing Browser Based Vulnerability Exploitation Incidents from David Ross, and Robert Hensing's recent post on his blog detailing the work SWI does in detail. We’re still evaluating how best to deliver future research – it’s possible we will build a SWI blog similar to this one.
SWI React, Microsoft
