Nokia, Cisco, FB, others unite to defend users everywhere from cyber attacks

Tuesday 17 April 2018 | 13:54 CET | News
‌A group of 34 companies have a signed a new Cybersecurity Tech Accord, saying they agree to defend all customers worldwide from malicious attacks by cybercriminal enterprises and nation-states. Signatories include ABB, Arm, Cisco, Facebook, HP, HPE, Microsoft, Nokia, Oracle, and Trend Micro. They have made commitments in four areas: stronger defense, no offense, capacity building and collective action. 

Capacity building includes doing more so that developers and the people and businesses that use their technology will be able to better protect themselves. This will include joint work on new security practices and the deployment of new features. Collective action means the companies will build on existing relationships but also set up new formal and informal partnerships with industry, civil society and security researchers to improve technical cooperation, coordinate vulnerability disclosures, share threats and minimize the potential for malicious code to be introduced into cyberspace. 

The companies say the accord is open to other companies who want to join. All the signatories will hold their first meeting during the security-focused RSA Conference taking place in San Francisco, and will focus on capacity building and collective action. Future actions may include jointly developed guidelines or the launch of new features. 

The full list of signatories includes ABB, Arm, Avast!, Bitdefender, BT, CA Technologies, Cisco, Cloudflare, DataStax, Dell, DocuSign, Facebook, Fastly, FireEye, F-Secure, GitHub, Guardtime, HP Inc, HPE, Intuit, Juniper Networks, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Nielsen, Nokia, Oracle, RSA, SAP, Stripe, Symantec, Telefonica, Tenable, Trend Micro and VMware.
