Does your vendor care about deploying security patches or firmware updates? Do they understand the constrains of an Internet of Things (IoT) architecture? Do they communicate important actions you need to take and are committed to conducting business at the highest standards? If you have not asked your technology vendor(s) these questions…you should. Take a look at Cisco’s security vulnerability policy and at our Code of Business Conduct to help guide the discussion. We believe that trust is key to any successful relationship. Customers and partners trust our solutions, our advice and our support. Overall, they trust us to do the right thing. We do not take that for granted. At Cisco, every employee plays a role in building and maintaining trust. We do this by, accurately advising our customers and partners, conducting business with transparency, protecting privacy and data, creating trustworthy technologies and making sure security and privacy by design is not an afterthought. The Cisco Trust Center provides information about these and many other related topics, including the popular European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
