    Office Pro telemetry changes are coming?


    Microsoft to update Office Pro Plus after Dutch ministry questions privacy

    The Netherlands’ justice ministry was concerned popular programs were sending diagnostic data from Europe to the US without adequate user controls.

    Microsoft plans to update its Office Pro Plus products by the end of April to address a series of privacy concerns raised in an audit commissioned by the Dutch justice ministry that flagged what the auditors called "high risks" to government users' privacy.


    The update for many of the company's Office Pro Plus customers, which has been confirmed by Microsoft, will address concerns relating to a package of popular Microsoft programs — namely that they were sending diagnostic data from Europe to the United States without adequate documentation and user controls over what was sent.

    Microsoft and the Dutch justice ministry agreed on the changes as part of an "improvement plan" with an April deadline. A ministry spokesman told POLITICO that if Microsoft's responses proved "unsatisfactory," the ministry could raise the concerns with European data protection authorities for further action that could include "enforcement measures."

    The Dutch ministry's audit report is interesting (English), includes risk assessment, available here...

    Will MS implement the requested changes for Holland only, or will it be worldwide? That remains to be seen...
