GE is committed to a culture of security to protect information about our employees, customers, suppliers, and Company, as well as our systems. This effort begins at the top as a senior leadership priority, with regular reviews of our capabilities, ongoing assessments of our policies, and coordinated communication throughout our organization.
GE understands the importance of integrating industry cybersecurity practices that have been developed by organizations such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the International Standardization Organization (ISO). We maintain an information technology infrastructure that implements reasonable physical, administrative, and technical controls designed to protect information stored on GE’s networks, including customer data, personal information, intellectual property, and proprietary information. In addition, we have committed resources and implemented processes designed to prevent, detect, and respond to cybersecurity threats.
As the world becomes more digitally connected, it presents a growing number of targets for cybersecurity attacks, across every industry and against every company. We take a holistic, proactive approach to enabling resilience across our ecosystems. The core tenets of GE’s strategy include enhancing our hardware and software with embedded security; protecting our products with cybersecurity solutions and services and robust testing; responding to all anomalies with global, always-on security response centers; and collaborating with others to share vulnerabilities and key learning.
We are investing time, money and creative talent to evolve as the threats become more sophisticated. We are attracting the best and brightest and collaborating with industry, university, and government leaders to produce the next generation of cybersecurity solutions.
