Aligning to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for best practice
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals provide us with a blueprint to achieving a better and more secure future for all. We selected the following goals, which we felt were most relevant to our business and to our stakeholders:
3- Good Health and Wellbeing
With the increased pressures of a pandemic and the intensity of the work we do, we put a great deal of effort into our wellbeing programme for colleagues.
We recognise the impact of inclusion and diversity on wellbeing, and we encourage real conversation about topics that matter personally to our colleagues. And we invest in resources and policies that further strengthen this commitment.
4- Quality Education
As a pure play cyber expert, we are committed to investing in the cyber skills that will be needed in the future. From our global research programme, to investing in LinkedIn Learning, we also sponsor colleagues to undertake external accreditations. And we offer a Next Generation Talent programme to enable a non-traditional route into cyber.
5- Gender Equality
We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive culture for all and we take responsibility for playing our part in the global challenge of not only encouraging more women into technology, but also ensuring a level playing field for career progression.
We are investing in early careers programmes, our own and in partnership with others, and with the development of policies and resources that support colleagues at whatever stage of life they are at, and our career paths framework, we are building a foundation to create a successful environment to achieve our ambition.
9- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Our commitment to research, vulnerability disclosure and threat intelligence and the industry partnerships we foster help to provide safe and secure by design technologies.
Working across multiple industries globally, we have practice and sector experts to continually research, monitor and develop future solutions to enable sustainable and confident growth for organisations.
13- Climate Action
While not a material risk due to the nature of our business, we believe in taking responsibility for the part we play in protecting the planet. We have partnered with Planet Mark to support us on our journey and our first priority was to certify our current carbon footprint before we embark on a programme to reduce our impact.
16- Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Our value proposition is based on trust and this is founded on our Code of Ethics, considering the interests of all our stakeholders when we make decisions on the Group’s future strategy and priorities.
