Default Tech giants commit to refrain from cyberattacks with notable exceptions

From Wired.

"Some of the world's biggest technology firms have signed up to the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a commitment that they "will not help governments launch cyberattacks against innocent citizens and enterprises). The 34 companies, which include Cisco, Arm, BitDefender and GitHub, have also committed to protect their users against exploitation and work to develop defences against cyberattacks. However, some of the industry's biggest players, notably Google, Apple, and Amazon, are conspicuous by their absence."

The Guardian report is here.
