Lunch Break, ep. 4: Scott Guthrie (part 2)

First published on CloudBlogs on Sep 17, 2015
In part 2 of my great conversation with Scott Guthrie , we tackle some more important topics:
  • How many red polos does Scott have in his closet?
  • What did Scott foresee himself doing back when he was studying computer science 20 years ago?
  • What is the biggest change MSFT has made in its engineering teams over the last 2 years?
  • Why did MSFT change its success metrics from revenue to usage ?
  • Scott's roll working with Sony after last year's hack.
We also dig in on weighing the ongoing cost of dealing with the fallout from a breach vs. the costs of enterprise-grade, as well as the need for organizations to be realistic about the statistical likelihood of successful phishing attacks (even here at MSFT!).  There’s also a detailed discussion about why (and how) MSFT chose to develop a security solution built on a multi-layered, defense-in-depth architecture. Several of these topics are covered while we’re stopped at one of the longest red lights in recent memory. Next week , I hit the road with Kip Kniskern , an editor at WinBeta.org .
