Security expert changes roles at Microsoft

Security expert Scott Culp has moved to a new position in Microsoft's Security Strategy Group, the company said Monday. Before the move, Culp was the lead executive responsible for responding to reports of vulnerabilities in Microsoft software through the company's Security Response Center.

Culp helped establish the procedures for receiving reports of new problems and issuing fixes. In his new role, Culp will work on a "broad range of security projects across the company to better improve our customer's experience," he said in an e-mail.
