eyeo today announces that it has joined the Cybersecurity Tech Accord. This initiative is a public commitment among more than 60 global companies to protect and empower civilians online and to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace. In doing so the Cybersecurity Tech Accord aims to promote a safer online world by fostering collaboration among global technology companies committed to protecting their customers and users and helping them defend against malicious threats and breaches.

A Common Goal

As Dr. Judith Nink, Data Protection Officer and Director for Policy at eyeo says: “All of our products prioritize security and privacy. We take the protection of users’ personal data very seriously and collect as little data as possible. We believe that signing the Cybersecurity Tech Accord strengthens that mission.”

We also believe as a company in the shared commitment and collective action that the Cybersecurity Tech Accord aims to put into place:

  • Protect customers, users and the developer ecosystem with information and tools that enable them to understand current and future threats and better protect themselves.
  • Protect customers and users everywhere by designing, developing and delivering products and services that prioritize security,privacy, integrity and reliability, and in turn, reduce the likelihood, frequency, exploitability and severity of vulnerabilities.
  • Work with each other and like-minded groups to enhance cybersecurity best practices, such as improving technical collaboration, coordinated vulnerability disclosure and threat sharing, as well as ensuring flexible responses for the wider global technology ecosystem.
  • Oppose efforts to attack citizens and enterprises by protecting against exploitation of technology products and services during their development, design, distribution and use.

eyeo and its products, most notably Adblock Plus, are designed with user privacy and security in mind from the start. By creating one of the worlds most popular browser extensions, eyeo helps passively protect millions of users every day from malvertising infections.
