ITEM 1C. CYBERSECURITY Risk management and strategy We have implemented and maintain various information security processes designed to identify, assess and manage material risks from cybersecurity threats to our critical computer networks, third party hosted software as a service vendors, communications systems, hardware and software, and our critical data, including intellectual property, confidential information that is proprietary, strategic or competitive in nature, and our production server environments (“Information Systems and Data”). Our information technology team with oversight from our Chief Financial Officer as well as specific resources that manage our production server environment help identify, assess and manage the Company’s cybersecurity threats and risks. The team includes credentialed professionals whose experience and current duties include the identification and management of cyber risks. Our information technology team identify and assess risks from cybersecurity threats by monitoring and evaluating our threat environment using various methods including, for example manual tools, automated tools, analyzing reports of threats and actors, conducting scans of the threat environment, evaluating our and our industry’s risk profile, internal and external audits, third party threat assessments, conducting vulnerability assessments, use of external intelligence feeds, subscribing to reports and services that identify a cybersecurity threats, and evaluating threats reported to us. Depending on the environment, we implement and maintain various technical, physical, and organizational measures, processes, standards and policies designed to manage and mitigate material risks from cybersecurity threats to our Information Systems and Data, including, for example: incident detection and response, disaster recovery plans, encryption of data, network security controls, data segregation, access controls, physical security, asset management, tracking and disposal, systems monitoring, employee training, and penetration testing. Our assessment and management of material risks from cybersecurity threats are integrated into the Company’s overall risk management processes. For example, the information technology team works with management to prioritize our risk management processes and mitigate cybersecurity threats that are more likely to lead to a material impact to our business and reports to the audit committee of the board of directors, which evaluates our overall enterprise risk. We use third-party service providers to assist us from time to time to identify, assess, and manage material risks from cybersecurity threats, including for example threat intelligence service providers, cybersecurity consultants, cybersecurity software providers and penetration testing firm consultants. We use third-party service providers to perform a variety of functions throughout our business, such as third party content providers, application providers and contract manufacturing organizations. In the last three fiscal years, we have not experienced any material cybersecurity incidents and the expenses we have incurred from cybersecurity incidents were immaterial. For a description of the risks from cybersecurity threats that may materially affect the Company and how they may do so, see our risk factors under Part 1. Item 1A.
