Hello,

I’m Christopher Budd and I’m a communications program manager in the Trustworthy Computing (TwC) Group. Some of you may know me from my work with the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC), but these days I’m working with Peter Cullen, Brendon Lynch and others in our Privacy Group.

Today in Burbank, California Peter delivered a keynote titled “The New Privacy Landscape and Why It Matters” at the Cyber Safe California Summit. He was kind enough to sit down with me for about ten minutes last week to discuss the summit as well as provide some insight into what he would be covering while there. We’ve posted both a podcast and a transcript of our conversation.

In our conversation, Peter talks about how this summit fits in with California’s leading work around privacy education along with how he’ll be sharing some of the lessons that Microsoft has learned in its ongoing work to help protect customer privacy over the years.

Even if you were able to  attend the keynote this year,  my conversation with Peter provides a good, short peek not only into what he covered, but also into some of the ongoing work that he and his team are doing not just at Microsoft, but in partnership with others in the industry.

Thanks.

Christopher
