Introduction from the CFO
NTT Security (UK) Limited, company number 03403334, whose registered office is at Theale House, Brunel Road, Theale, Berkshire, RG7 4AQ (the "Company") is committed to improving its practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery and is contrary to the principles of freedom and dignity. It goes against one of the Company's core Values - Integrity.
The exploitation of human beings dehumanises the individuals who are trafficked, rewards the inhumanity of the traffickers, and weakens the moral and social fabric of society at large. Reliable reports show that millions of people around the world are subjected to it. The techniques used by traffickers and the forms in which trafficking is manifested are various, but what is common to them all is the exploitation of some people by other people. Those who are victimized include babies, children, teenagers, women and men.
The Company cannot condone any form of slavery or human trafficking and has a zero tolerance approach to those found to have breached the Company’s Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. The Company is deeply committed to fighting modern slavery however it may be manifested. We seek to exercise care in restoring the freedom and dignity of those affected.
The Company has issued an Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy which provides clear procedures for reporting any suspected incidences, and is supported by the UK Whistleblowing Policy.
The Company provides Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking awareness training for all new starters and annually for existing staff as part of their ongoing compliance training.

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we issue all new suppliers with a New Supplier Questionnaire that contains, among other things, a request for confirmation that the supplier has its own Anti-Slavery Policy and that it is aware of and complies with the Modern Slavery Act.
The completed Questionnaires are reviewed by the Company’s Legal, Finance, Procurement and Information Security Teams, and any discrepancies or concerns are raised with the supplier before they can be used to provide goods and services to the Company.
Suppliers are obliged to comply with all applicable laws, including the Modern Slavery Act, in their contracts with the Company.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the Company’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2019.
