MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 15, 2003 — On Thursday, Jan. 23, Mike Nash, corporate vice president of the Security Business Unit at Microsoft Corp., will discuss the security improvements and innovations Microsoft customers and the computer industry can expect in the next year. In addition, Nash will address the company’s security plans, the real benefits customers will see in 2003, and how customer feedback over the past year has helped shape the direction of this important initiative.
In January 2002, Microsoft made security a top priority as part of its Trustworthy Computing initiative, and put new internal processes in place to improve the security experience of customers. These changes are designed to build the foundation for a more secure Microsoft® Windows®
platform. While progress has been made, Microsoft’s commitment to security is long-term and must be continually adapted to successfully address new security threats and changing customer needs.
The Silicon Valley Speaker Series, held monthly at the Microsoft Silicon Valley campus, is part lecture and part interactive forum in which company executives and industry observers address a variety of technologies, trends and topics relevant to the fast-moving high-technology world.
