The increasing availability of data is rapidly changing how businesses
operate. Large and diverse pools of information enable rich
value-added services and important societal benefits, but they also
create a whole range of new security and privacy challenges. What is
the role of state in ensuring Internet commerce, activities, and
trust? What is a reasonable expectation of privacy? Scott Charney will
share his views on the NSA revelations as well as the industry
perspective regarding concerns about government metadata programs, the
top key cyber security challenges and Microsoft's view of what we need
to know as we try to advance cyber security policy.


Scott Charney is Corporate Vice President for Microsoft’s Trustworthy
Computing Group. Mr. Charney is responsible for a range of corporate
programs that influence the security, privacy, and reliability of
Microsoft’s products, services, and internal networks. He also manages
the Engineering Excellence Team, a group focused on promoting
best-of-breed engineering practices and ensuring compliance with
Microsoft’s mandatory engineering policies. Prior to joining
Microsoft, Mr. Charney served as a Principal at PricewaterhouseCoopers
where he led the firm’s Digital Risk Management and Forensics
Practice. Before that, Mr. Charney served as Chief of the Computer
Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS) where he was
responsible for implementing the Justice Department's computer crime
and intellectual property initiatives. Under his direction, CCIPS
investigated and prosecuted national and international hacker cases,
economic espionage cases, and violations of the federal criminal
copyright and trademark laws. His section also proposed and commented
on legislation; represented the United States internationally; and
supported the development and implementation of U.S. information
technology policy.
