After four years at the helm of Microsoft’s security group, Mike
Nash is taking a break. This June he will go on sabbatical after
handing over responsibilities to his replacement, Ben Fathi.

led Microsoft’s Security Technology Unit during a period in which the
security of Microsoft’s products was increasingly scrutinized following
a number of worldwide worm attacks, including Slammer and MyDoom.

strategy as the software vendor struggled against a public perception
that its products were insecure.
