I am proud to share that StackPath has joined the Cybersecurity Tech Accord. We’re making a public commitment along with more than 60 other global companies to protect and empower consumers online and to improve the security, stability, and resilience of cyberspace. You can read about it in the Cybersecurity Tech Accord’s announcement.
As I said in our release, the very reason StackPath was created was to make the internet safe. And we strongly believe in collaborating and having conversations, even with our “frenemies” in the industry. That’s why our platform is completely open and available to anyone.
It was a no brainer for us to join the Cybersecurity Tech Accord to promote a safer online world with other global tech companies committed to protecting users and helping them defend against malicious threats.
We may be a new signatory to the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, but its values already align closely with our values, and its core principles already align with our core principles:
- Strong defense: We believe everyone deserves equal protection online irrespective of technical acumen, culture, location or motive for any malicious attack.
- No offense: We are committed to not knowingly undermining the security of the online environment, and to protecting against efforts to tamper with our products and services.
- Capacity building: We see cybersecurity as a shared responsibility and work to improve both the ability of everyone to act securely and safely online and the diversity of the security practitioner community.
- Collective response: We believe we can achieve more together and will partner within the group and more broadly to address critical cybersecurity challenges.
Yes, we are doing these things already, but we’re excited to bring our skills to the Cybersecurity Tech Accord. We’ve made strides independently to make the internet safe, but there is power in numbers; we can achieve more together.
