Schneider Electric joins Cybersecurity Tech Accord

working pattern internet abstract 1089438 1Schneider Electric, a digital transformation of energy management and automation, has joined the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a watershed agreement among its signatories to enhance the cybersecurity ecosystem and to defend the digital economy from cyberattacks

The Cybersecurity Tech Accord is a public commitment among 144 global companies to protect and empower civilians online and to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace.

Christophe Blassiau, senior vice president, Digital Security and Global CISO, Schneider Electric, said, “We are facing a new reality and geopolitical climate where malicious actors have unlimited time, resources and funding to carry out cyberattacks. Taking on newer, more innovative and increasingly dangerous threats can't be limited to a single company, industry or region.

“In joining the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, we are proud to continue our collaboration with industry leaders around the world to help detect, prevent and respond to cyberattacks.”

Schneider Electric and fellow Cybersecurity Tech Accord signatories, including prominent partners such as Cisco and Microsoft, secure critical aspects of the world’s online environment, including telecommunications, data centres and industrial control systems.

"It is paramount for the digital ecosystem to have open and productive conversations, be transparent about attacks and collaborate on the development of new approaches to ensure both legacy and new technologies can withstand the most sophisticated cyber threats,” Blassiau said.

Tom Burt, corporate vice-president, Microsoft Customer Security and Trust, said, “Cybersecurity relies on partnership and collaboration, which have been central to the Cybersecurity Tech Accord from the beginning. Microsoft is delighted to see an increasing number of companies, including global heavyweights such as Schneider Electric, sign up to the principles that are pivotal to the long-term security and stability of cyberspace and that form the heart of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord.”
