Cybersecurity Tech Accord Adopts Bug Disclosure Policies
The 111 tech companies that signed on to the Cybersecurity Tech Accord compete against each other every day, but they all agree on the big picture: protecting their customers and users and improving cybersecurity globally. Since Microsoft President Brad Smith launched the initiative in April 2018 with 32 companies including Facebook, Cisco, Dell Technologies, and Nokia, it has grown into what its members say is the largest industry led cybersecurity pact. It has also worked with other industry groups and endorsed cybersecurity best practices like Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance and Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security. And the group continues to push governments to adopt similar policies that oppose cyberattacks on organizations and civilians — for example, contributing to and ultimately endorsing the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace and working with a United Nations’ digital cooperation panel.
