Microsoft launches Digital Peace Now
Microsoft has launched the Digital Peace Now initiative, inviting citizens to sign the petition and call upon world leaders to create rules to protect the global digital society. The initiative highlights the weaponisation of the shared cyberspace and technology by governments, cautioning that these attacks may be devastating and may spread from the digital to the physical world. It therefore aims to stop cyberwarfare, underlining that there is no peace without digital peace. The initiative follows Microsoft’s call to governments for a Digital Geneva Convention, and its commitment to the principles of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord drafted by tech companies.
