Building a safe information society is at the core of Loihde’s operations. Every day, we protect people, information and other assets in hundreds of customer companies and public administration bodies from physical and digital threats.
Our indirect impact is even more extensive: we contribute to ensuring that society’s key infrastructure, for example, power plants and healthcare services, is prepared for cyber threats and other security threats.
Cyber security is about being prepared and ready to react
The importance of cyber security as part of responsible conduct has grown in recent years as cyber crime has increased and the potential impact of cyber attacks has become more widely recognised. In international research on responsible investment, cyber security came second in the list of the most significant ESG risks immediately after corruption, before climate change (RBC Global Asset Management 2021).
In addition to being prepared and security, it is important to be able to react quickly and in a controlled manner in the event of a potential security attack, to ensure that corrective measures do not cause unintended additional harm, and to recover from an exceptional situation as quickly as possible. This is the expertise of Loihde Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC), which oversees customers’ IT environments around the clock. Numerous examples have shown how the early detection of anomalies and the correct response have ensured the undisturbed continuity of the customer’s operations.
Personnel has a key role in information security as well.
Ensuring security is not just technology. More than half of the data leaks encountered by companies and one fifth of information security breaches occur as a result of personnel’s own actions. That is why raising awareness of information security is paramount. The user experience of digital services must also be designed to make it easier to act correctly and avoid mistakes.
Loihde continuously trains its own personnel in matters related to information security and data protection according to the requirements for each role.

Information security certifications demonstrate our commitment to the development of information security. Loihde Trust Ltd’s information security
