“We want to see adequate protective systems and controls in place, rigorous and systematic testing of these systems and controls, and regular updates of security software. It’s important to us too that there’s appropriate training of employees and suppliers and that the security team use external specialists to keep up-to-date with industry trends and best practice.” Charles Somers – Portfolio Manager at Schroders
