I love this message from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, it's clear, concise, and complete. Every so often, the most simple messages are the most powerful.

“If you’re faced with the tradeoff between security and another priority, your answer is clear: Do security,” Nadella wrote in the memo posted by The Verge Friday.

This all resulted from a Microsoft Exchange online breach was first discovered in June 2023.

The U.S. Cyber Safety Review Board (CSRB), which was appointed by the Department of Homeland Security, ultimately found in the 34-page report that Microsoft needs to reprioritise its security in a much bigger way.

This will only strengthen the security posture of Microsoft I'm sure to make us all more safe.
