Data Protection & Privacy
Protecting our corporate, customer, and colleague information is a priority for us. With cybersecurity threats on the rise, we continue to enhance our global security measures. Our information and cybersecurity program is designed to identify risks and protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our data, as well as our information systems. The program is built upon a foundation of advanced security technology, a well-staffed and highly trained team of experts, and robust operations based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework. This consists of controls designed to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover from information and cybersecurity incidents.
