Fight digital crime
Our Digital Crimes Unit investigates cybercrime and takes action to keep our customers safe in the digital age. We promote digital peace and support the global development of cybersecurity policies to mitigate risk and advance norms.
Strengthen digital safety
Technology can break down boundaries, but we must preserve its safe use and the free exchange of ideas. Microsoft integrates safety by design across our products and services. We advance digital safety law and policies consistent with a free, open, and secure internet.
Promote digital diplomacy
We use our voice to ensure others don't use technology to harm communities, economies, and the institutions that underpin our way of life. We support the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace as an important step toward digital peace.
Develop responsible AI
We're putting responsible AI into practice. We have AI principles, which we’ve translated into implementation processes, as well as tools, training, and practices to support compliance. And we enable our customers and partners to develop and deploy AI safely.
Commit to transparency
We understand that transparency is foundational to earning trust. We provide detailed information on how we run our business in our reports hub, which provides a single, consolidated view of key reports and resources related to our programs and progress.
Adhere to privacy principles
We build our products and services with privacy from the ground up, aligned to clear privacy principles. Our privacy dashboard enables millions of users to control their data and make meaningful choices about how it’s used.
Support data sovereignty
We’re working on a phased rollout of the EU Data Boundary for the Microsoft Cloud, allowing customers in the EU to have their data processed and stored in the region.
Balance privacy and public safety
There is a balancing act between keeping customers' information private and the legitimate needs of governments and law enforcement to access information to keep the community safe. We've published principles we believe should govern the way they access personal data.
