Why it matters
The trend towards increasing digitization and advances in technology afford us significant business opportunities. However, our interconnectedness and reliance on digital systems also expose us to the potential for digital piracy and the release of sensitive information.
Our work on cybersecurity supports the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
At Nutrien, we are building a culture of cybersecurity. To supplement our Code of Conduct, which outlines expectations for the appropriate use of Nutrien assets and management of personal information and Company records, Nutrien has a global Cybersecurity Policy to inform Nutrien users of their responsibilities for protecting the technology and information assets of the Company.
In addition, our global Privacy & Cookies Statement describes the personal information that Nutrien collects from or about individuals, and how we use and to whom we disclose that information. We also developed supporting policies, standards and guidelines designed to protect Nutrien systems, services, data and information, based on recognized best practices including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”) Cybersecurity Framework, applicable privacy legislations, and appropriate records management.
Our continued focus on and investment in our cybersecurity program has increased our overall system control maturity and decreased cyber risk in critical areas. We focus on the fundamentals: protecting our systems, assets, data and identities, and making modifications as the cyberthreat landscape changes.
