A week before Microsoft’s Future Decoded event in Mumbai that will highlight how digital technology is empowering people, a top company executive has called for “Digital Geneva Convention” to protect innocent civilians from cyber crimes.

While addressing a RSA cyber security conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith called on the world’s governments to host a “Digital Geneva Convention”.

“Needed: a Digital Geneva Convention to protect civilians on the internet, as the 1949 Geneva Conv. protects civilians in times of war. #RSAC,” Smith tweeted ahead of the conference.

In another tweet he said that “Tech’s cyber-security promise must be clear. We will assist and protect customers everywhere. We will not help attack customers anywhere. #RSAC”

The original Geneva Convention is primarily a set of global agreements, signed in 1949 and negotiated in the aftermath of the Second World War (1939-45), to protect civilians, prisoners and others during war.

In simpler words, Microsoft wants the world to agree on stop hacking innocent civilian targets who cannot hack back.

“Just as the Fourth Geneva Convention has long protected civilians in times of war, we now need a Digital Geneva Convention that will commit governments to protecting civilians from nation-state attacks in times of peace,” Smith wrote in a blog post.

He said that Microsoft, like companies across the tech sector, was aggressively taking new steps to better protect and defend customers, including from nation-state attacks.

This includes new security features at every level of the technology stack, reflecting the $1 billion that we’re spending annually in the security field, Smith wrote.


Microsoft’s Lawsuit Against Department of Justice Will Continue Says US Court

Us court order on Microsoft Lawsuit

A US court has ruled that the lawsuit filed by Microsoft against the Department of Justice will continue, media reports said. Microsoft argues that the US government’s gag-ordered searches of Microsoft accounts violates the constitutional right to free speech.

According to a report o  Thursday, Microsoft filed a lawsuit against the Justice Department in 2016, saying it was “unconstitutional” to force the firm to remain silent and not inform customers when their cloud data had been searched or inspected by authorities.

“The court also declined to uphold Microsoft’s Fourth Amendment case against the gag-ordered searches, finding that the precedent involved was too significant to be overturned at the district level,” the report noted. The Western Washington District Court heard the case.

The Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution provides “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Since Microsoft’s customers store their most private and sensitive information in the Cloud, the government allegedly began to seek the secrecy orders. Back in 2013, the software giant lashed out at the US government following Edward Snowden’s disclosures of mass surveillance.

In its initial complaint, Microsoft said it had brought the case because it believed that its customers should know when the government obtained a warrant to read their emails.

The ruling was made by the same District Judge James Robart who issued a nation-wide restraining order against the Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily banned the entry of refugees from seven Muslim-majority nations into the US.
