Trust in a (hyper) Connected World: Microsoft CPO presentation
Microsoft New Zealand is delighted to announce Brendon Lynch, the Chief Privacy Officer, Microsoft giving partners an exclusive presentation on privacy. Over the past year, revelations of government surveillance, highly publicized data breaches and other stories of private information being leaked have dominated the media. More revealing than the stories themselves is the public’s impassioned response to them, demonstrating that there is still a basic expectation amongst the public personal privacy.
As public discourse continues, some organizations, governments and education facilities have begun to consider the safety of data. In addition, with the use of technology, companies like Microsoft continue to work to effectively meet both privacy and safety expectations in a hyper connected world.
