US President Joe Biden has invited Apple CEO Tim Cook, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and Amazon president and CEO Andy Jassy to the White House to discuss how the private sector can help combat ransomware and software supply chain attacks.
The forthcoming meeting, reported by Bloomberg, concerns America's resilience to major cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, which Biden has told Russian president Vladimir Putin should be "off limits".
Cook, Nadella, and Jassy plan to attend the event on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 24, according to Bloomberg sources.
Chiefs of Google, IBM, Southern Co, and JPMorgan Chase have also been invited to the meeting to discuss how critical infrastructure organizations in the banking, energy and water utility sectors can improve cybersecurity and collaboration with the government.
The SolarWinds attack, which resulted in compromises at Microsoft, multiple top US cybersecurity firms, and several government agencies, highlighted the cybersecurity risks to US critical infrastructure.
