Capgemini today announced that it has joined the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a growing global alliance of 60+ leading technology companies who are committed to promoting a safer online world by fostering collaboration and protecting their customers and users, and helping them defend against malicious threats.
With such high levels of threats and risks across the globe, cybersecurity is a tremendous challenge to tackle, both in terms of technology and for society as a whole. It therefore requires an industry wide collaboration. Capgemini is providing daily end-to-end advisory, protection and monitoring services to secure client organizations and its own assets. As a signatory of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, Capgemini is committed to strengthening the security of cyberspace, by sharing experience, expertise and best practices with the global technology industry, to create a platform for dialogue, discovery and decisive action. Joining the Cybersecurity Tech Accord sees Capgemini sign up to the following core principles, where it will aim to:
1. Protect all its customers and users everywhere.
2. Oppose cyberattacks on innocent citizens and enterprises from anywhere.
3. Help empower users, customers and developers to strengthen cybersecurity protection.
4. Partner with each other and with likeminded groups to enhance cybersecurity.
“Capgemini wholeheartedly embraces the idea of trying to reduce the impact of cybercrime on our society, but no organization can defy the ever-evolving cybersecurity threats on its own. Therefore, we are very pleased to join the Cybersecurity Tech Accord and contribute to advancing its mission by collaborating on initiatives that improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace,” says Steve Wanklin, Chief Cybersecurity Officer of the Capgemini Group.
As a global leader in technology services, Capgemini takes seriously its responsibility to help everyone benefit from the digital revolution. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility program, Capgemini commits to enable digital culture components to improve citizenship experience and help to reduce the digital divide in our society. For higher impact, Capgemini works collectively with innovative partners to deliver tangible outcomes. Joining the Cybersecurity Tech Accord is an example of this. Other examples of our Digital Inclusion program include, in France, where Capgemini is a co-founder of the “Grande Ecole du Numérique” (GEN), a group of private and public organizations, aiming to train people who are currently far from employment; in India where Capgemini has partnered with the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), to implement a program across India, supporting 12 National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM) centers.
