Imperva is dedicated to the global fight to keep people’s data and applications safe from cybercriminals. What this means for our Imperva Threat Research team is that we spend a lot of time researching new cyber attacks, creating mitigations and writing powerful software. We believe that nothing grows in a vacuum, and as such understand the importance of collaboration as a member of the global cybersecurity ecosystem.
To this end, when we heard about the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, we knew it provided a unique opportunity for us to not only continue protecting our customers but to help make “cyberspace” safer for everyone. We’ve committed to working hand-in-hand with 61 other global companies, in doing so improving the security, stability, and resilience of cyberspace.
About the Cybersecurity Tech Accord
The Cybersecurity Tech Accord is a public commitment among 61 global companies to protect and empower the global online community and to improve the security, stability, and resilience of cyberspace.
Our Tech Accord commitment:
- We will protect all of our users and customers everywhere. For us at Imperva, that’s part of our DNA. That means prioritizing security, integrity, and reliability of our software, to decrease the likelihood, frequency, exploitability, and severity of vulnerabilities.
- We will oppose cyberattacks on innocent citizens and enterprises from anywhere. That means that we will not help governments launch cyber attacks on innocent citizens and enterprises from anywhere.
It also means that we will protect against tampering with and exploitation of technology products and services during their development, design, distribution, and use.
- We will help empower users, customers and developers to strengthen cybersecurity protection. That means we will provide our users, customers and the wider developer ecosystem with information and tools that enable them to understand current and future threats and protect themselves against them.
It also means that we will support civil society, governments, and international organizations in their efforts to advance security in cyberspace and to build cybersecurity capacity in developed and emerging economies alike.
- We will partner with each other and with like-minded groups to enhance cybersecurity. We feel like this is the heart of the Cybersecurity collaboration, the commitment to first fight cyber-crime and cyber-terrorism, only then be business rivals.
It means we will work with each other and will establish formal and informal partnerships with industry, civil society, and security researchers, across proprietary and open source technologies, to improve technical collaboration, coordinated vulnerability disclosure, and threat sharing, as well as to minimize the levels of malicious code being introduced into cyberspace.
It also means we will encourage global information sharing and civilian efforts to identify, prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from cyber attacks and ensure flexible responses to the security of the wider global technology ecosystem.
We are excited about being a part of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord and look forward to collaborating with fellow members.
One of our first collaborations will be a webinar for the Global Forum on Security Expertise (GFSE).
About the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE)
The Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE) is a global platform for countries, international organizations and private companies to exchange best practices and expertise on cyber capacity building. The aim is to identify successful policies, practices, and ideas and multiply these on a global level. Together with partners from NGOs, the tech community and academia GFCE members develop practical initiatives to build cyber capacity.
Our webinar with the GFCE will be on application security. As you can imagine, this is a topic we are very passionate about – so we hope you’ll join us.
