Access Now

Access Now urges action by 22 internet, mobile & telco cos., based on 2018 Corporate Accountability Index

In September 2018, Access Now wrote to the heads of 22  internet, mobile and telecommunications companies, outlining specific steps they can take to improve their disclosures about the policy and practices they use to safeguard digital rights. 

The letters drew on the companies' positions within the Ranking Digital Rights "Corporate Accountability Index".  Access Now tailored its recommendations for each company, asking them to ensure they encrypt wherever possible, report wherever meaningful, and provide remedy whenever necessary.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is publishing Access Now's letters, the company responses and non-responses - and follow-up by Access Now - below.
