MODERN SLAVERY ACT STATEMENT 

This statement, made in respect of section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, sets out the approach taken by Cognisys Group Ltd to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business, and the actions undertaken to mitigate any such risks during the financial year ended 31 December 2019.

Cognisys is a regional and national provider of IT Services, including Managed Services, Cyber Security Audit and Security Testing. Cognisys has less than twenty employees and is headquartered in the UK. Our supply chains consist of global manufacturers, suppliers and vendors, international distributors and a number of smaller UK based suppliers of, services and consultancy.

Cognisys’s Board is committed to delivering high standards of corporate governance and a key element of this is managing the company in a socially responsible way. Cognisys aims to employ the highest ethical and professional standards and always to comply with all local laws and regulations applicable to our business; it follows that Cognisys is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities and its supply chains.

Cognisys also expects the same high standards which we set for ourselves from those parties with whom we engage, such as our suppliers and customers.

Due to the nature of our business and our approach to governance, we assess that there is very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains, however we aim to periodically review the effectiveness of any relevant policies and procedures that we have in place.

We do not have key performance indicators in relation to slavery or human trafficking as any instance would be expected to be a breach of law, our supplier standards and/or our company policies.

This statement is approved by the Board and signed (30/09/2019) on its behalf by:

 

Steve Spence

 
  

 

CEO, Cognisys Limited
