STERIS recognizes the importance of maintaining the trust and confidence of our Customers and employees to safeguard sensitive information and the integrity of our information systems. To more effectively prevent, detect and respond to information security threats, the Company has appointed an Executive Cybersecurity Steering Committee and has appointed a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) reporting to the Chief Information Officer. The CISO, along with his team, is responsible for leading an enterprise-wide information security strategy, including policy, standards, architecture, and processes. The Audit Committee meets with the CISO and various members of the Executive Cybersecurity Steering Committee routinely to review and discuss the Company's cyber risks and threats, incident responses, technology, the status of projects to strengthen the Company's information security systems, assessments of the Company's security program and the emerging threat landscape.

STERIS also conducts information security and awareness training to ensure that employees are aware of information security risks and to enable them to take steps to mitigate those risks. As part of this program, the Company takes steps designed to provide appropriate guidance regarding security to our executive management and employees, including any employee who may come into possession of confidential financial information.

STERIS also has various technical, administrative, and physical safeguards in place to help protect against unauthorized access to, use, or disclosure of the Customer and individual information and data we collect and store. The Company's Chief Compliance Officer is responsible for supervision of the Company's Compliance Department and assesses the effectiveness of privacy controls and compliance with various legislative and regulatory requirements.

To date, no attempted cyber-attack or other attempted intrusion on our information technology networks has resulted in a material adverse impact on our operations. In the event an attack or other intrusion were to be successful, we have a response team of internal and external resources engaged and prepared to respond.
