The firm says that by joining the coalition, it affirms its commitment to being open, transparent and collaborative so it can better detect, prevent and respond to cyber threats across its extended enterprise.

Schneider explains that the Cybersecurity Coalition brings together companies to assist government policymakers in developing solutions that:

  • Promote a vibrant and robust cybersecurity ecosystem;
  • Support the development and adoption of cybersecurity innovations; and
  • Encourage organizations of all sizes to take steps to improve their cybersecurity.

“Joining the coalition demonstrates that Schneider Electric takes cybersecurity challenges seriously and that we are committed to playing a foremost role in developing solutions,” said Hervé Coureil, chief digital officer, Schneider Electric, in a prepared statement. “Our membership ensures we have a focused seat at the table to initiate open, transparent and collaborative conversations that advance the adoption of cybersecurity 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 says it will explore and help improve how government agencies and regulatory bodies, international standards bodies, security researchers, vendors, partners and customers work together to tackle cybersecurity risks.
