Apple has announced that it will create a program to ensure security improvements are made throughout the technology supply chain. Apple will collaborate with its suppliers, including over 9,000 in the United States, to promote the widespread adoption of multi-factor authentication and security training.

Amazon wants account holders to get multi-factor authentication devices free of charge to help protect their data. Microsoft has pledged $20 billion to enhance its security tools, and $150 million to assist government agencies in providing security training for their partner agencies.

After multiple hacker attacks against critical infrastructure from Russian and Chinese hackers, President Biden met with him. It’s not clear when these measures will be implemented by each company.
