Key governance highlights in 2023


Corporate governance

In 2023, we reviewed and updated many of our key policies, including our Bribery, Corruption and Anti-Money Laundering Policy and our Whistleblowing Policy. All employees and Directors completed our 2023 Corporate Governance Training Programme, which included training on anti-bribery and corruption, business integrity, related party transactions, share dealing and diversity, among other topics.



In 2022 Ecora appointed a third-party cybersecurity specialist to undertake a data penetration test and vulnerability assessment and advise on the security and information technology infrastructure and policies appropriate to our business needs. In light of the findings from such assessments, during the course of 2023 Ecora has implemented improvements which were needed to its information technology systems and Is currently preparing new cybersecurity policies. As a result of this review, with assistance from a third-party specialist, Ecora has now developed a full suite of cybersecurity policies that will be implemented in the first quarter of 2024. In 2023, all employees and Directors were offered training on cybersecurity and Ecora applied for and obtained the nationally recognised Cyber Essentials certification.
