Symantec is committed to respecting human rights wherever we do business around the globe. We believe in the importance of upholding human rights, including the rights to privacy and freedom of expression as well as human rights in the supply chain. We are engaging with our stakeholders to continually refine our approach and related policies and practices.
Privacy and Freedom of Expression
As a company operating in the information communications and technology (ICT) space, we must consider all the ways our software and services are used. To the degree that there is a potential for misuse of our technologies, our responsibility is to be aware of and advocate against these abuses, and to the degree possible, implement safeguards to prevent them.
Symantec also evaluates human rights risks and opportunities in its supply chain through rotating country audits across its regional operations. These measures help ensure the integrity and transparency of Symantec’s product and service supply chain, and help us more closely adhere to the principles set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human rights.
