ESG and Security Risk Support
Security services that meet your sustainability and ESG goals
Your organisation’s security risk exposure is impacted by how well you manage ESG issues. Complex community relations, environmental degradation, or corruption can create security challenges or even crises. How you design and run both physical and digital security functions can have an impact on ESG performance.

When organisations focus on ESG they shouldn’t neglect the critical link between ESG and security, as this will affect the level of their security risk profile and influence the solution.
As the scale and frequency of cyber attacks continue to grow, the impacts of cyber security incidents reached an all-time high in 2020.
