Cybersecurity Tech Accord signed by companies

Thirty-four global companies – including Microsoft, Facebook, LinkedIn, Arm, ABB, Telefonica, Cisco and Dell among others – have signed The Cybersecurity Tech Accord, publicly committing to protect and empower civilians online and to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace. The companies committed to four principles: the protection of all of their users and customers everywhere; opposition to cyberattacks on innocent citizens and enterprises from anywhere; helping empower users, customers and developers to strengthen cybersecurity protection; partnering with each other and with like-minded groups to enhance cybersecurity. Signatories of the Accord will define collaborative activities they will undertake to further the Accord and will report publicly on the progress in achieving the goals.
