Capgemini is set to play an increasingly prominent part in the global battle against cyber crime after joining the Cybersecurity Tech Accord.

This global alliance of more than 60 leading technology businesses has made a commitment to maximising safety in the online world by encouraging collaboration and helping to defend the public against digital threats.

In an announcement confirming its enrolment in the initiative, Capgemini stressed that industry-wide cooperation is required to combat the dangerous and growing threat of cyber crime.

As a signatory of the accord, the firm is now committed to strengthening digital security by sharing its experience, expertise and best practices with fellow companies in the global technology industry.

Specifically, Capgemini has signed up to the following core principles:

  • Protecting all of the firm's customers and users, everywhere
  • Opposing cyber attacks on innocent citizens and enterprises, from anywhere
  • Helping to empower users, customers and developers to strengthen cybersecurity protection
  • Partnering with other signatories and like-minded parties to enhance cybersecurity

The company said its involvement in the Cybersecurity Tech Accord is an example of its dedication to helping all portions of society benefit from the digital revolution.

Steve Wanklin, group chief cybersecurity officer, said: "Capgemini wholeheartedly embraces the idea of trying to reduce the impact of cyber crime on our society, but no organisation 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."

The firm's other recent initiatives include the co-founding of France's Grande Ecole du Numerique, a group of public and private organisations focused on training people to help them gain employment.

In India, it has partnered with the National Association of Software and Services Companies to support 12 National Digital Literacy Mission centres across the country.
