Why Trustworthy Computing is still a Microsoft priority

Ten years ago this week, Bill Gates sent a memo to all Microsoft employees announcing the Trustworthy Computing (TwC) initiative and defining the key aspects of TwC.

 Gates wrote:

 “Trustworthy Computing is computing that is as available, reliable and secure as electricity, water services and telephony.”
