Our Commitment to You

The latest Cisco Transparency Report answers our customers’ top inquiries about government data demands.


Software Transparency

A Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) provides an important layer of transparency and accountability to help customers keep their network healthy and software supply chain secure.

Transparency Report

Cisco is committed to publishing data regarding requests or demands for customer data that we receive from law enforcement and national security agencies around the world. We will publish this data twice yearly (covering a reporting period of either January-to-June or July-to-December). Like other technology companies, we will publish this data six months after the end of a given reporting period in compliance with restrictions on the timing of such reports.

How we protect data from unlawful demands

Cisco requires that government and law enforcement agencies first seek to obtain data from Cisco customers directly.

When they demand data from Cisco, we require strict adherence to applicable laws as outlined in our Law Enforcement Guidelines for Government Data Demands.

Global Certifications and Standards

Securing and protecting our customers and their data includes following open, global standards. Access security, data privacy and compliance content in the Trust Portal.
