Microsoft renews call for a Digital Geneva Convention

Microsoft CEO Brad Smith has renewed the call for a Digital Geneva Convention, in response to the WannaCry ransomware cyber attack, on 12 May. Governments should treat the attack as a wake-up call, and should take a different approach by adhering in cyberspace to the same rules applied to weapons in the physical world. Among the proposed provisions of the convention is the requirement for governments to report vulnerabilities to vendors.
