Kim Sanchez who manages our Consumer Marketing initiative here in Microsoft Trustworthy Computing had this to share. If you've got creative campaigns out there to drive meaningful change in privacy, Internet safety, and security issues, please submit them to the Advertising Coming Together (ACT) for inclusion in the the International Festival of Advertising Cannes Lions Festival.
