IT systems are a vital part of Ansaldo STS group’s operating structure and their management must be in line with the group’s strategic objectives. IT solutions that do not match business needs, or upgrades thereof that do not meet users’ needs, or inefficient system or outsourcer management, could compromise the efficiency and effectiveness of group operations.
Moreover, the unavailability or interruption of IT services or network and data loss or damage (including sensitive data or intellectual property), also as a result of hacking, could compromise group operations.
To mitigate this risk, the IT policies took into account the organisational and process change initiatives. Moreover, Ansaldo STS group has a governance system based on best practices and follows structured and monitored processes for hardware and software management, including cyber-security aspects.
