JC Cannon

I am a sixteen-year veteran of Microsoft, twelve of those years focused on privacy. I am currently the Director of Privacy Strategy for Microsoft’s Online Services Division. I work to ensure that consumers have more transparency and control over how their online data is used. I have also worked on the SQL Server, Corporate Privacy and Active Directory teams at Microsoft.

I am a member of the IAPP Publication Advisory Board, W3C Tracking Protection WG, NAI and IAB. Before joining Microsoft I spent twenty years as a developer, mostly at startups. Before that I spent six years in the U.S. Navy working on aircraft carriers. I grew up in Muskegon Heights, MI and have lived in France, Sweden, England and several cities across the U.S.
