At Sampo Group, information security refers to the processes and tools designed and deployed to protect business information from modification, disruption, destruction, and unlawful inspection. Cybersecurity, on the other hand, comprises technologies, processes, and controls that are designed to protect systems, networks, and data from cyber threats. Information security and cybersecurity are both important factors in ensuring that Sampo Group companies are successful in their business operations.
Sampo Group companies are exposed to information security and cybersecurity risks due to the high quantity of sensitive data the companies handle and due to operations in countries with strict data protection regulations. Sampo Group acknowledges the risks related to information security and cybersecurity, and ensures that suitable training is provided to employees of the Group companies. All employees must adhere to the highest standards of information security and cybersecurity by following internal rules and guidelines, using appropriate tools, and acting responsibly.
The group-level guiding document on information security and cybersecurity is the Sampo Group Code of Conduct. In addition, each Group company has adopted more detailed policies and guidelines for their own commercial purposes. According to the Code of Conduct, the protection of information and the handling of information are given special attention, and requirements on information security and cybersecurity are set and expected to be met by internal and external stakeholders.
