Microsoft Holds Symposium on Data Security

On Wednesday, NEC member Microsoft held a symposium entitled “Conversations on Privacy, Privacy Models : The Next Evolution.”

The symposium sought to examine today’s privacy framework and discussed the lack of protection on individual’s private information. The panelist, including Commissioner Julie Brill of the  Federal Trade Commission (FTC),  elaborated on  two recently published white papers (“Data Protection Principles for the 21st Century” and “Data Use and Global Impact”) that discuss  proposed regimes data security. Though  there was a difference of opinion on which data security measures should be implemented and who should implement them, all  agreed that current data security legislation is out of date and in need of change.

This is the first in a series of  conversations that Microsoft’s Innovation & Policy Center plans to hold to discuss privacy and data security. The New England Council thanks Microsoft for their continued commitment to improving data security.
