How we monitor cyber risk in our portfolios
Cyber security is both an investment performance and regulatory risk and as responsible investors we believe monitoring this risk is of vital importance. However, this area is challenging to assess and monitor due to a lack of public disclosures, sensitivity, and the complicated nature of the topic.
We have found engagement invaluable in uncovering information to help us monitor this risk. In 2022 we launched phase 3 of our cyber security engagement programme, building on the previous two phases of engagement which started in 2020. In phase 3 we expanded the scope of the programme to include policy advocacy, assessed companies against our investor expectations and discovered examples of best practice.
