Stepping up to the challenge: which companies are responding on digital rights?

The Ranking Digital Rights (RDR) Corporate Accountability Index evaluates the world’s most powerful internet, mobile, and telecommunications companies on their disclosed commitments and policies that impact our rights to freedom of expression and privacy... In October 2019, Access Now wrote to the 24 companies evaluated, asking for improvement in one key area based on the results of the RDR Index. To date, only 10 of the 24 companies have provided public responses addressing the steps they take to ensure that our rights are protected... [T]hese responses are just the first step. We will continue to work with these companies to ensure that they follow through on their commitments to digital rights.
