Stolen identities and distribution of personal data without consent are some of the issues that most Internet users encounter whether we like it or not.
To address these type of concerns, Microsoft announced that it would broaden new privacy rights that turn into law in Europe to all its users from around the world. Microsoft Windows deputy general counsel Julie Brill wrote the news in a blog post. She was a Federal Trade Commission commissioner.
Brill said, “We’ve been enthusiastic supporters of GDPR since it was first proposed in 2012. It sets a strong standard for privacy and data protection by empowering people to control their personal information.”
