NEW YORK – The U.S. and Ireland signed a global cybersecurity agreement that includes a commitment to combat cyber-espionage and cybersecurity threats.
The pact will allow U.K. and Irish firms to share and exchange data, including through data-sharing agreements, in the face of threats from both countries.
It is part of a broader U.N. Security Council-brokered agreement on cybersecurity that also includes a requirement for companies to share information on malicious cyberattacks.
Under the agreement, U.C.L.A. will get to collect data from all of its customers, including U.Y.C., U.A., UH.
S., UK., and Ireland.
U.S.-based cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike said the deal “could lead to a more secure world” and could help U.B.
C and other U.G. countries “take control of cyber threats.”
“This agreement could help the U.F.C.-based companies to better manage the threats that they face and increase their capacity to take control of and recover from cyber-attacks,” CrowdStrike CEO Dmitri Alperovitch said in a statement.
“We look forward to working with the UF.
Cs. government and the UB.
Cs., both of which have already shown leadership in addressing cyber-threats, to further improve cybersecurity and to ensure that this critical sector of the UG.
C.’s economy and economy is protected against these threats,” he added.
