Summary
The Biden administration's appointed Cyber Safety Review Board criticized Microsoft for "a cascade of errors" that allowed state-backed Chinese hackers to breach email accounts of senior U.S. officials, including Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo. Highlighting Microsoft's inadequate security culture and lack of transparency about the breach's extent, the board calls for an overhaul in the company's security practices, given its vital role in national security, economic foundations, and public health and safety.
