SANS - Survey on application security programs

Microsoft UK's anti-piracy man is to take up a new challenge and do battle with unruly journalists. David Gregory is to ditch his high-profile crackdown role to become the software giant's new head of PR in the UK. After two years of fighting the trade in copied software, Gregory now takes charge of the assembled ranks of spin doctors at Microsoft and its PR agency, Text 100. As well as having the thankless task of pacifying journalists and analysts, he will need to try and get Microsoft's "good" name in the press as often as possible. It is not clear whether the new job will leave Gregory free to pursue other interests, such as his blossoming TV career. Or whether he will continue to court the press in his individual manner. But whatever the outcome, The Register looks forward to hearing from Mr G who, we are sure, will be able to tell us how to improve our coverage of the Great Satan's good works. ®
