Our commitment to sustainability and social impact
We want to see a more sustainable and connected world
We believe that the rapidly growing digital world can and must be used to help make the physical world more sustainable. The solutions will need to be robust - we are betting our future on it - so we need great cybersecurity. That is why at Intigriti we are ensuring that we do our part.
Our ambition is to use the power of the community to make sure that we are making the world a better place. Together, we can build a better society and a sustainable environment, in which people are central and the planet is protected.
In 2015, the United Nations set out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030. By supporting these SDGs, Intigriti will help in the transformation to a sustainable, inclusive society.
Where we help
We have identified three key areas where our community can make a difference.
- the development of more sustainable industries and infrastructure,
- an improvement in living conditions in our communities,
- and finally, a more socially just world.
We will work to identify more digital solutions that help deliver on these goals and create a more sustainable world. Innovations will unavoidably create opportunity for hackers, so we will look to bring those solutions to the Intigriti platform in ever increasing numbers. With the help of our community we will use our platform to counter these treats and clear the path for the adoption of sustainable technology.
Securing Sustainable Industries and Infrastructure
Digital innovation in industry is exploding, driven not just by computing but also by diverse trends across activities such as transportation and logistics, in energy infrastructure, and in human health, safety and security. Each area has critical assets, including data, that needs to be secure. This needs to be tested continually as things evolve. This testing is not limited to web or device applications, mobile solutions or communciations infrastructure.
Take the energy industry. Energy infrastructure, equipment, components and systems are undergoing a rapid digital transformation. Innovations such as smart energy meters and the advanced technologies that control, store and insert renewable energy from solar and wind resources into existing networks create new economic benefits and reduce energy consumption. The creativity and domain expertise of crowdsourced security is needed to keep these vital digital systems safe.
Securing Smart Cities
In the future increasingly intelligent, and even autonomous, systems and sharing economies will support diverse lifestyles, while also rapidly reducing our environmental impact. There will be millions of connected embedded systems (IOT) throughout our smart cities to control their critical infrastructure. Yet, they are vulnerable. The world already witnessed how easy and dangerous it is for attackers to take control of connected infrastructure, as reported in many global news stories of the last several years.
Can you imagine how hard it will be to “patch” a city?
Look at transport. The future of mobility lies in shared car fleets and autonomous cars – but more connectivity and sharing also makes us more vulnerable. Autonomous cars and electrical fleets both hold much information on their users, as well as the risk of being maliciously hijacked. With applications continuously changing and software updates being regularly released, these companies will truly benefit from crowdsourced cybersecurity solutions.
Through the Intigriti platform, we provide equal opportunity to all based purely on ability. We support and encourage all our researchers regardless of culture, race, gender, religious belief and socio-economic backgrounds. We invest in our community, encouraging interactions amongst researchers, while fostering the education of our members through sharing of best practices and the development of new skills. Our diverse community of researchers comes from all over the world.
Embracing the new way of working, Intigriti rewards the community for valuable contributions rather than time spent. The result is an open environment in which individuals can participate from wherever and whenever they choose, in a safe and educational setting.
We are committed to UN SDG 16, namely ensuring that we work to achieve Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions throughout the world. To safeguard our societies and fundamental core values, we must seek to use cybersecurity for ‘good’, in order to ensure that we can protect and build the trust in our core institutions. Whether it is helping to defend the freedom and integrity of the press, government institutions or even charities and NGOs, the Intigriti platform can help ensure that the community protects our core institutions and basic rights.
