Trending Security News

This week, Microsoft Trustworthy Computing marked its 10 year milestone and several news stories focused on learning lessons and contributions to security. Elinor Mills’ CNET article captured the sentiment: “Microsoft security–you’ve come a long way, baby.” A Threat Post article, Ten Years After Gates’s Memo, Effects Still Being Felt, noted that the Bill Gates’ memo launched the initiative back in 2002 and “was not just a directive for Microsoft developers, but a call to arms for the rest of the industry, as well.” ComputerWeekly.com, Microsoft aims to raise the security bar in 2012, wrote about the TwC Next initiative and the future with more news to come at RSA 2012 end of February, in San Francisco. We’ve seen significant security and privacy contributions to the IT ecosystem over the past 10 years that have led to industry change and we are naturally excited about the future!
