Microsoft's Jean-Philippe Courtois On Why Transparency Is Such A 'Big Deal'

Jean-Philippe Courtois, president of Microsoft International, spoke to HuffPost Live in Davos on Saturday about the steps his company is taking to maintain the public's trust as data moves further into the Cloud.

Courtois said Microsoft has been focusing on several aspects: improving how they anchor the data; certification and compliance of infrastructure; and transparency, among other things.

"This is a big deal to actually report back to society what we do with data and how we deal with government requests," Courtois said about being a transparent company.
