Microsoft Calls For International Convention On Government Access To Data

 7:07 pm on Jan 21, 2014 (gmt 0)

Microsoft's General Counsel & Executive Vice President, Legal & Corporate Affairs is calling for Governments to come together to create a legal framework over data access.

Last week, President Obama spoke about the role of the National Security Agency and announced some important changes to the surveillance practices of the U.S. government. We appreciate the steps the President announced, which represent positive progress on key issues including privacy protections for non-U.S. citizens. There is more work to do to define some of the details and additional steps that are needed, so we’ll continue to work with both the administration and Congress to advocate for reforms consistent with the principles our industry outlined in December.Microsoft Calls For International Convention On Government Access To Data [blogs.technet.com]

I'm not sure legislation is the real answer here. It's impossible to see who has access to data and what is being done with it.

A better initiative might be to ensure that all Microsoft systems are as secure as possible. Then data leakage wouldn't matter as much.
