In response, Microsoft is building a Cyber Defense Operations Center, described by the company as a "state-of-the-art facility" that will gather security experts from across all Microsoft products, including Xbox and Windows, to respond to threats in real-time 24 hours a day.

Nadella was particularly proud of the company’s work to create a giant “intelligence security graph” that feeds all its products. The hub of this network will run out of the company’s Redmond home in a grand new Cyber Defense Operation Centre, which forms part of a $1 billion investment in security that Microsoft claims it spends every year on protecting itself and customers.

Reg, 

im not one to censor anyone, but I'm asking you, please don't use that f bomb disrespectfully with my Lord and Saviors name. I know his name doesn't mean anything to you, but for those of us who fallow him it holds a place of respect and reverence. I'm humbly asking, please.
