Optiv’s Annual ESG Report Highlights Sustainability, Security, DEI and Community Outreach

DENVER — Apr. 22, 2024Optiv, the cyber advisory and solutions leader, has published its second annual Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, which highlights Optiv’s passion for securing greatness for the world while focusing on its impact across three pillars:


  • Securing and protecting — Includes managing clients’ cyber risk, 24/7/365, to make cybersecurity the heart of good governance; honing data security and compliance activities; ensuring leadership diversity is proportional to our workforce; and boosting compliance and reporting. Additional focus on evolving efforts to mitigate environmental impacts posed by our global operations.
  • Expanding talent and opportunity — Focusing on One Optiv, a culture that incorporates diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) priorities, as well as the evolving skills and career development training that supports the growth and full potential of our people, services and advisory offerings.
  • Building community — Spotlighting the purpose-driven spirit of our people, as well as Optiv’s community engagement activities and our efforts to inspire and empower the cyber leaders of tomorrow. The organization is also focused on the use of diverse suppliers, our employee volunteers and the ways Optiv uplifts underrepresented groups in cyber.


“In this time of economic uncertainty, some companies have elected to scale back on ESG efforts, but Optiv chooses to lean in because it’s the right thing to do. From security and sustainability to DEI and charitable actions, we integrate ESG principles into all aspects of our business in a way that is authentic to us,” said Optiv CEO Kevin Lynch. “As the world’s largest pure-play cybersecurity company, we have a responsibility to lead by example and rally other organizations to join us in our quest to secure greatness — for companies, people and the world. Amidst today’s dynamic threat landscape, we are needed now more than ever, and Optiv is not only up for the challenge but was built for this moment.”


Optiv exceeds industry benchmarks in several areas. Key highlights from the 2024 ESG Report include:




“Our sustainability journey is one for which we are committed to making continual progress, and managing cyber risk that supports effective governance and compliance is core to what we do for our nearly 6,000 clients and ourselves,” said Bill Croutch, executive vice president, general counsel and one of the executive sponsors of this year’s report. “Through the efforts of our teams, Optiv has become a more responsible community partner and employer every year. There’s a lot for us to be proud of, and at the same time, more work to do.”


Optiv’s ESG efforts align with the organization’s core values of dedicated, curious, inclusive, connected and courageous.
