In this week’s episode, Andy and Paul have a discussion that has been brewing for the past several episodes. Microsoft has experienced a series of security incidents in the last few years. For example, the SolarWinds debacle in 2020, multiple exchange server on-prem issues, and more recently the Storm-0558 incident. 

The core issue that all these problems raise, especially for a major global cloud provider, is trust. Can Microsoft be trusted to secure these services that millions around the globe use every single day? This is the main question that the guys get into in this episode along with lots of other great discussions around security in the Microsoft Cloud.
