We have a duty of care to our people, assets, investments, reputation and data across our operations. We remain vigilant to emerging threats while offering support, advice and training as necessary.
Keeping our people safe
We continually improve the support, training and advice we give to our people through subscribing to specialist tools to evaluate threats to personnel and assets across our locations. We also act on intelligence from embassies, civil authorities and contractors.
Our Journey Management System allows employees to access plans and traveller guides before they travel and while they are away. In medium- and high-risk locations, we have Security Management Plans in place and, where necessary, ground security teams to provide safe transit to hotels, airports and meetings.
We maintain support mechanisms for personnel working in, or travelling to, locations that experience general and specific security challenges. These include the challenges associated with activities impacting our perceived footprint in each country.
Security of assets
Specific risks associated with issues such as offshore piracy are regularly reviewed. We maintain our own guidance to protecting our assets, but we also integrate them with our major service companies, sharing intelligence and response support where necessary.
We regularly review our arrangements to ensure we protect our IT infrastructure from deliberately malicious software. We communicate threats, strategies and improvement plans to maintain a holistic and collaborative approach throughout the Group and have a dedicated cyber security manager and a 24/7 service partner that continually manage current threats and risks.
To stay on top of security trends, we take guidance from several industry bodies, including:
- the International Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) Security Committee;
- the Information Commissioner’s Office;
- the National Cyber Security Centre; and
- the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
