Microsoft, Google Back Paris Cyber Pledge on Hacks
Updated on

Microsoft Corp., Google and Samsung Electronics Co. are backing a cybersecurity pledge coming out of Paris that promises to unite tech giants and governments in battling election tampering, compromised electronic components and software hacks.

Hundreds of companies, non-profit groups and governments -- including France and the U.S., but not China or Russia -- have signed the “Paris call for trust and security in cyberspace,” which came about under the auspices of President Emmanuel Macron, French officials said.
