(PRESS RELEASE) BERKSHIRE, 21-Nov-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — For the third consecutive year, Vodafone (LON: VOD), a British multinational leader in technology communications, has been named the winner in the FTSE350 Cyber Reporting category of PwC’s prestigious Building Public Trust Awards. These awards recognize organizations, both in the corporate and charitable sectors, that lead the way in delivering sustainable outcomes through transparent and insightful reporting, addressing critical societal issues.

The accolades are determined through a rigorous assessment of publicly available cyber security reporting, with companies unable to nominate themselves for consideration.

Upon receiving the award, Vodafone’s Director of Cyber Security, Technology Strategy & Assurance, Emma Smith, expressed her delight, stating, “We’re delighted to be recognised as a FTSE 350 leader in cyber reporting. Our role at Vodafone is to enable secure and safe connectivity in society. This award reflects the hard work the team put in every year to provide our customers and employees with clear and transparent information on how we manage cyber risk. This level of reporting is essential if we are to maintain public and customer trust.”

PwC introduced the Cyber Security Reporting awards in response to the escalating cyber threats, including a surge in ransomware attacks. The company recognized that investors and stakeholders are increasingly interested in understanding how organizations assess, manage, and mitigate cyber security risks as an integral part of organizational resilience.

While the judging panel acknowledged that other companies had produced clear and informative reports, Vodafone stood out for its “comprehensive and detailed yet highly readable and accessible” cyber security reporting. Judges particularly commended Vodafone’s coverage of past incident responses, the inclusion of click-through video content featuring senior executives, and the easily comprehensible cyber factsheet designed for non-technical readers.

One judge commented, “I’m no expert on cyber. But Vodafone’s reporting has convinced me why I should care about it – and [why I should also] look at all the other FTSE350 reports to see how they address it.”
