A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Bret Arsenault. Bret is the Chief Information Security Officer for Microsoft and has been with the company many years. In fact, if you look closely behind him, you’ll see the huge twenty year crystal behind him. It’s the one on the far left.
As you might imagine, Bret has held a number of interesting positions during his career here at Microsoft and has a lot of experience dealing with a wide range of technology issues. He was kind enough to let me ask him some questions about how he deals with security in Microsoft and I think you’ll find his answers interesting. The following interview is slightly over ten minutes. I hope you enjoy it.
