Key issues to be discussed:

Microsoft does not believe that cyber security operates in a silo. People, governments and the industry must combat digital threats together. Cyber security is no longer a subject just for IT. Today, the topic has a prominent seat in every boardroom. What’s at stake ranges from customer privacy, brand identity, to an executive’s reputation. People can lose money, businesses can lose customers, and companies can lose trade secrets, intellectual property and their competitive edge.

Microsoft is also committed to protecting the most vulnerable among us from technology related crimes, scams and fraud. A significant area of focus has been on-line distribution of child exploitation materials. The scale of the problem is massive and Microsoft feels it’s their responsibility to aggressively address these crimes.

Finally, privacy is a fundamental human right that should not be given away. The definition of privacy among the younger generation of technology users is evolving. They are willing to share personal information through social media while still longing for privacy. Microsoft engages this organic response to the need for transparency.
