Microsoft security manager urges women to aim high in tech sector [video]

12 Oct 2012

V3 caught up with Microsoft general manager Adrienne Hall to discuss her experience working in the technology industry and how women's roles and place in the industry have changed.

Before joining Microsoft in July 1990, Hall began her career in the technology industry working as a systems software specialist at Applied Voice Technology for three years.

Following her departure Hall joined Microsoft and has worked in numerous roles within the company, including general manager of Microsoft's global accounts for the United States and Canada.

She's now one of the most senior female members of the Trustworthy Computing (TwC) division at Microsoft.

A vocal advocate for woman working within the technology industry, Hall is also a founding member and sponsor of the Executive Women's Forum for Security, Privacy and Risk Management Professionals.

Check back with V3 in the coming weeks for more from Hall on her thoughts on the role of women in the technology industry.
