The Sustainable Organisation understands the importance of ensuring the safety of its data and assets and the continual actions required in order to ensure protection from threats, contributing to the long-term sustainability of the Organisation.
Enterprise security is aligned with strategies, policies and objectives, including sustainability, ensuring there is clear and continual understanding of the critical processes, assets and data that must be protected. The Intertek Sustainability – Enterprise Security Standard brings these requirements together, challenging the Organisation to ensure they have the necessary protection in place. The standard is divided into six main components; Intellectual Property, Data Protection & Privacy, Cyber Risk Management & Controls, Physical Asset Security, Employee Security and Supply Chain Security.
