In my last blog post, I made the point that consumers and organizations choose a cloud service based on their ability to trust that the cloud service provider will protect their privacy. At Microsoft we work to earn that trust with specific data protection measures in place and with a promise to use data in a manner consistent with customer expectations. Our enterprise customers can rest assured that the data they entrust to us belongs to them.
As organizations make the complex decision to invest in cloud services, we understand the importance of being transparent about our practices and policies. See more >>

As a company, we have been working hard to further increase data security protections in our services, to add capacity to our transparency center engagements with governments, and to push governments to be more transparent themselves.
In December, we announced our commitment to increase the security of our customers’ data, and our plans to reinforce legal protections for our customers’ data. In January, we called for an international convention focused on the issue of government access to data. Then in March, we shared the additional steps we took to protect your privacy.
We are committed to earning our customers’ trust each and every day, and today, Matt Thomlinson, vice president for Trustworthy Computing Security, shares the progress we are making on these fronts. I encourage you to check out his Microsoft on the Issues blog post to learn more about this announcement. See more >>

In a recent post, I shared a short list of my favorite books and articles, related to reliability. Each one has influenced my thinking with respect to how to go about creating a high-performing IT organization, despite the fact not all of these publications are IT-centric in terms of subject matter. In this post, I’m going to take a closer look at “Antifragile”, the 2012 book written by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, and describe why I think the concept of antifragility is particularly applicable to cloud computing.

When I speak with customers, they often ask how they can successfully change the culture of their IT organization when deciding to implement a resilience engineering practice. Over the past decade I’ve collected a number of books and articles which I have found to be helpful in this regard, and I often recommend these resources to customers. I’ve included my favorites below, in no particular order, with a short explanation of why I’m recommending them. See more>>
By Brendon Lynch, Chief Privacy Officer, MicrosoftMicrosoft understands that a customer’s willingness to use a particular cloud computing service depends on their ability to trust that the privacy of their information will be protected, and that their data will only be used in a manner consistent with customer expectations. But even the best designed and implemented services can only protect customer data if they are deployed in a secured environment. See more >>

A couple months back, we wrote about plans to create a “sandbox” where antimalware industry experts and other security professionals can work together to move beyond disrupting malware to actually eradicating it. It’s a lofty goal, and one that we believe can change the game. See more >>
By Scott Charney, Corporate Vice President, Trustworthy ComputingIn the past few years, I have visited a number of universities to address multi-disciplinary audiences on the challenges of cyber security and privacy. Most recently, I visited both the University of Washington and Stanford University, the former to teach a course on cybersecurity and cybercrime; the latter to connect with students and faculty on security, privacy, and big data.

What does the future look like? To take a closer look, Microsoft has released a report called “Cyberspace 2025: Today’s Decisions, Tomorrow’s Terrain.” How will the choices organizations make at present, affect their ability to shape the social, economic and demographic changes a decade from now?
