We have high ethical standards governing the way we conduct our business, standards that we also apply to our suppliers and business partners. Our business practices and standards reflect our commitment to making a positive impact around the globe. We demand such high standards from ourselves and our partners to preserve trust with our customers, governments, investors, partners, representatives, and each other, and because it is the right thing to do. Microsoft has built its compliance and ethics program on three pillars: Prevention, Detection, and Remediation. We continually evolve our programs to meet these goals. To prevent compliance issues from arising in the first place, we focus on promoting a culture of ethics and integrity. We do this through creating a culture of compliance throughout our company, and through our Standards of Business Conduct, policies, and training, while also using data analytics, risk assessment, proactive investigations, third party vetting, and other compliance efforts to minimize potential risks. Compliance is a team effort at Microsoft. Every employee is responsible for upholding our standards, fostering the culture of compliance in their Microsoft team and partners, and reporting concerns.
