Information security

UN Women is committed to preserving the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all the physical and electronic information assets held through the organization, not only to support and enable its mandate, strategic objectives, and daily operation, but also to protect its stakeholders.

Reporting a cyber security issue: To improve the protection of its information and communication technologies (ICT) systems and assets, UN Women encourages the public to assist with its efforts by disclosing vulnerabilities in UN Women’s publicly accessible information systems and assets as well as reporting cyber security issues.

Information Security Hall of Fame: UN Women thanks the many individuals and organizations that have helped improve the security of the organization’s information systems, data, and ICT resources by reporting security issues and vulnerabilities discovered.

Scam alert: UN Women has been made aware of various correspondences—circulated via e-mail, from websites, and via regular mail or facsimile—falsely stating that they are issued by, or in association with UN Women, the United Nations and/or its officials. These scams, which may seek to obtain money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence, are fraudulent.
