  • Introducing Brendon Lynch

    Posted by: Richard Saunders, Director, Trustworthy Computing


    Today we want to introduce you to Brendon Lynch, Microsoft’s Chief Privacy Officer. In this 30-second profile series, we give an inside look at our team by informally interviewing members of Trustworthy Computing about what they do both in and out of work. We have now profiled Adrienne Hall and Steve Lipner.

    - What do you do in TwC and how long have you been doing it?

    I am the company’s Chief Privacy Officer (CPO). I joined the privacy team in TwC eight years ago and became the CPO in 2010. In this role I am responsible for privacy policy creation and implementation across the company, engaging with external stakeholders and influencing the creation of privacy and data protection technologies for customers.

    - What’s the first thing you do every day at work?

    Catch up on emails from my European colleagues and contacts. There is a lot of interest and activity in the privacy and data protection field in Europe right now so that flow of email seems to be growing.
