In Equinor, security is an organisational capability that enables corporate objectives by safeguarding our people, assets and operations.
Good security begins with the behaviour and actions of each and every one of us – how we think and act each day at work or at home. By being aware of, and thinking through, our daily routines and actions, all employees contribute to our own and Equinor’s security.
We emphasise that security is everybody’s responsibility. We all have to understand the risks we face, and act to ensure we are secure. Leaders are accountable for protecting our people and business by continuously identifying, understanding and acting to reduce security risks. All employees play a role in being vigilant, complying with security requirements at all times, and reporting incidents and concerns.
The ability to keep our people, assets and operations secure from malicious threats is a key factor in maintaining our licence to operate and being a successful business. Failure to meet security expectations could result in injury to our people, damage to our facilities, loss of production or information, or in the worst case, loss of life.
We have an holistic approach to security in Equinor covering three disciplines: physical security, information security and personnel security. These three disciplines work together create a strong regime, each protecting against the weaknesses of the next, providing a mix of deterrence and detection.
Physical security measures are designed to safeguard personnel, prevent unauthorised access to facilities, equipment, and documents; and to safeguard against eavesdropping, sabotage, damage, and theft.
Information security is the process of protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. We have a risk-based approach to Information security focusing on people, process and technology.
Personnel security protects against those who exploit their legitimate access to our assets for unauthorized purposes.
