ITEM 1C. CYBERSECURITY Cybersecurity Risk Management and Strategy We have developed and implemented a cybersecurity risk management program intended to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our internal and customer facing IT Systems and Confidential Information. We have designed our program taking into account the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (“NIST CSF”) and Center For Internet Security (“CIS”) Controls. These standards, along with other industry benchmarks, such as the PCI DSS, are used as a guide to help us identify, assess, and manage cybersecurity risks relevant to our business, but this does not imply that we meet any particular technical standards, specifications, or requirements at all times. Our cybersecurity risk management program is integrated into our overall enterprise risk management program, and shares common methodologies, reporting channels and governance processes that apply across the enterprise risk management program to other legal, compliance, strategic, operational, and financial risk areas. As part of our enterprise risk assessment function, which is led by our General Counsel and Vice President of Internal Audit, we have implemented processes to assess, identify and manage the material risks facing the Company, including from cyber threats. As part of this process, our IT organization assesses cybersecurity risk and evaluates our policies, procedures, skill sets and tools, with the aim to identify and address, as appropriate, areas of vulnerability. Our internal audit team performs testing to assess whether our program is appropriately designed and operating as intended. Key elements of our cybersecurity risk management program include, but are not limited to the following: - risk assessments designed to help identify material cybersecurity risks to our IT Systems and information; - a security team principally responsible for managing (1) our cybersecurity risk assessment processes, (2) our security controls, and (3) our response to cybersecurity incidents; - designing products and services built with security tools; - cybersecurity awareness training, including internal phishing tests of our employees, contractors, consultants, or any third-parties who will have access to our IT Systems, information, products, services, or our broader enterprise IT environment; - a cybersecurity incident response plan that includes procedures for responding to cybersecurity incidents; and - a third-party risk management process for key service providers, suppliers, and vendors based on their criticality and risk profile. We have not identified risks from known cybersecurity threats, including as a result of any prior cybersecurity incidents, that have materially affected us, including our operations, business strategy, results of operations, or financial condition. We face certain ongoing risks from cybersecurity threats that, if realized, are reasonably likely to materially affect us. See “Risk Factor- Our inability to protect our IT Systems and Confidential Information from continually evolving cybersecurity risks, security breaches or other technological risks could affect our reputation and brand among our merchants and consumers and may expose us to material financial penalties and legal liability.” Cybersecurity Governance Our Board considers cybersecurity risk as part of its risk oversight function and has delegated to the Audit Committee (“Committee”) oversight of cybersecurity and other information technology risks. The Committee oversees management’s implementation of our cybersecurity risk management program. The Committee receives periodic reports from management on our cybersecurity risks and program. In addition, management updates the Committee, as necessary, regarding any significant cybersecurity incidents. The Committee reports to the full Board regarding its activities, including those related to cybersecurity. The full Board also receives briefings from management on our cyber risk management program. Our management team, including the Director of Enterprise Security & Compliance, is responsible for assessing and managing our material risks from cybersecurity threats. The team has primary responsibility for our overall cybersecurity risk management program and supervises our internal cybersecurity personnel. Our management team’s collective experience includes a diverse background in fintech and other industries, with decades of experience in various aspects of cybersecurity. Our management team stays informed about and monitors efforts to prevent, detect, mitigate, and remediate cybersecurity risks and incidents through various means, which may include briefings from internal security personnel; threat intelligence and other information obtained from governmental, public or private sources, including external consultants engaged by us; and alerts and reports produced by security tools deployed in the IT environment.
