Microsoft continues to add, shuffle security execs in the wake of security incidents

“Microsoft is doing the right thing to increase focus on security with new senior appointments,” noted Pareekh Jain, CEO of EIIRTrend & Pareekh Consulting, in an email to CSO. “Now not only do individuals or groups of hackers attack, but state-sponsored cybersecurity incidents also happen. Product companies like Microsoft, which have a large consumer, enterprise, and government footprint, need to be a few steps ahead.”

Microsoft also will be viewed as an example to other product-focused companies on how to respond to security challenges, so the moves it makes now are crucial for the overall industry security roadmap ahead, he noted.

“In a product business, the key metric is time-to-market for new features; [however,] it’s time that focus also shifts to time-to-security,” Jain observed. “The industry will be watching Microsoft moves, and in the future, more product companies will focus on time-to-security and bringing senior security talent in their product groups.”
