— Our annual social corporate responsibility report is a bit different to most reports of its kind. Ours doesn’t include lots of metrics – the kind that public corporations use to measure their ‘social efficiency’. As a non-public company, we can focus on the things we see as most important. We’re convinced that people who really care can do a lot, and change a lot, to make the world better and help us save it from more than just cyberthreats. That’s why our report comprises a variety of stories – some short, some long – which have come to our attention and grabbed us. And we’ve brought them together to show you. If you also feel impressed and inspired by these stories, we’ll be able to do even more good together.
