      IE 11 copy/paste problem

Gates talks on security issues

1 post in this topic

SYDNEY, Australia--Bill Gates' security message is taking a page out of Robert Frost: Good firewalls make good neighbors.


At a news conference here Monday, Microsoft's chairman said computer systems must become more secure and must be at least as reliable as essential physical infrastructure like electricity and water systems. "That absolutely has to be done," he said.

Gates said one-third of customers have never had problems with security attacks because they have firewalls in place. But for the other 70 percent of the customers, he said, the process of protecting themselves had been "clearly not automatic enough."
