Schneider Electric has announced its membership in the Cybersecurity Coalition, based in Washington, D.C. By joining the Coalition, Schneider affirms its commitment to being open, transparent, and collaborative so it can better detect, prevent, and respond to cyber threats across its extended enterprise.
The Cybersecurity Coalition brings together leading companies to assist government policymakers in developing consensus-driven solutions that promote a vibrant and robust cyber security ecosystem; support the development and adoption of cyber security innovations; and encourage organisations of all sizes to take steps to improve their cyber security.
“Joining the Coalition demonstrates that Schneider Electric takes cyber security challenges seriously and that we are committed to playing a foremost role in developing solutions,” said Hervé Coureil, Chief Digital Officer, Schneider Electric. “Our membership ensures we have a focused seat at the table to initiate open, transparent, and collaborative conversations that advance the adoption of cyber security policies and laws for the benefit of our customers, partners, and all stakeholders across our extended enterprise, including the communities and environments we mutually serve.”
As a member of the Coalition, Schneider Electric will explore and help improve how government agencies and regulatory bodies, international standards bodies, security researchers, vendors, partners, and customers work together to tackle cyber security risks.
“Schneider Electric shares the Coalition’s priorities, and our joining reinforces our commitment to collaborating with industry leaders who have the technology, expertise and unique skills required to secure and protect the digital economy,” said Christophe Blassiau, Chief Information Security Officer, Schneider Electric.
