          Business Ethics

          We remain committed to our well-developed ethics program and have expanded our ethics office presence in all facilities. At each of our sites, we celebrate Compliance Week every November which focuses on engaging and educating employees on all elements of compliance. Site liaisons act as eyes and ears at each facility and develop reports to solve any minor issues that come up. Our Board Ethics Committee discuss ethics compliance and Ethics Helpline trends quarterly and are regularly involved in ethics cases. We have established an Ethics Award, the Real Madore Award, to honor an employee that has been recognized as demonstrating above and beyond commitment to ethical business practices.

          Risk Management

          At Elbit America, our risk management procedures include various policies and procedures that identify, monitor and mitigate risks throughout the organization. Our Risk Issue and Opportunity Management manual provides details needed to implement Program Risk, Issue and Opportunity (RIO) Management using ARM, a tool that identifies risks and opportunities for all projects. We engage in responsible and compliant trading practices by implementing a risk framework and internal controls that demand accountability, transparency and auditability.


          We do our due diligence in preventing corruption and bribery within our business. We conduct an annual US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)/Anti-Bribery training with relevant employees and contractors selected for their function’s likelihood of exposure to transactions that could involve corruption. Our anti-corruption and anti-bribery practices are guided by our Prohibition of Fraud Bribery and Corruption Policy. The purpose of this Policy is to assist employees, officers, directors, agents and representatives of the company and our business partners, in identifying fraud, bribery and corruption related issues and in understanding and complying with applicable company standards. Elbit America complies with the FCPA as well as applicable international conventions including the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Convention and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

          Foreign Representatives

          To prevent corruption and bribery, Foreign Representatives are responsible for interacting with buyers in the foreign market. We hold our representatives to the same expectations as our domestic employees. Our business development team liaises with the representatives to ensure they comply with all of Elbit America’s polices. We have a detailed Foreign Rep Agreement required for all instances of foreign representatives’ partnerships that is updated every 2-3 years. Our representatives are run through a series of background checks prior to onboarding and are required to take annual anti-bribery training as part of their certification. Our Ethics and Compliance Department maintains oversight of representatives to prevent bribery and corruption.


          Elbit America maintains a rigorous Anti-Harassment Policy that covers all employees and outlines escalation procedure for reports of misconduct. As part of our commitment to doing the right thing, we do not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any sort in the workplace. Elbit America requires that all employees be treated with dignity and respect and extends these requirements to suppliers, contractors and consultants. Accordingly, we will not tolerate instances involving threats of violence, corporal punishment or various forms of harassment whether based on gender, race, color, religion, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or any other legally protected characteristic.

          Ethics Helpline

          Our Non-Retaliation and Whistleblower Policies are outlined in our Employee Handbook, Employee Code of Conduct, and Supplier Code of Conduct. We host Ethics Group town hall meetings to explain resources and how to reach out regarding ethics concerns. Our third-party helpline can be used by any employee or contractor and can be anonymous by request. Our Director of Ethics is informed whenever a case is initiated and determines the next steps to handle and violations. Our Board Ethics Committee is routinely involved in investigations and discuss ethics trends quarterly. The metrics from Ethics Helpline, including how many cases, duration and type, are tracked and reported an internal site. Elbit America has a non-retaliation clause in most procedures listed in the Code of Conduct.

          Code of Conduct

          Conducting our business ethically is one of Elbit America’s core values. As part of our ongoing Ethics and Compliance program, and consistent with applicable legal requirements, we are pleased to share our Code of Business Ethics and Conduct as approved by Elbit America’s Board of Directors.

We also expect our supply chain to meet our ethical standards in all of their activities with us, as reflected in our Supplier Code of Conduct.

          Cyber Security

          Our people are dedicated to protecting and constantly improving the company’s cyber security program. The cyber security policies and procedures put in place provide a compliance framework to protect the company. We understand that investing in cyber security is not a cost, but critical to our growth. Our cyber experts brief the Board every quarter on cyber security and ransomware from a Governance, Risk and Compliance perspective using a data dashboard. Currently, we maintain 15 policies tied to National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) controls for cyber security and information technology. We have also integrated ISO 27001 controls into our security plan which consisted of 3 enclaves: commercial, federal and development.

          Cyber Security Governance

          The quality and integrity of our cybersecurity governance processes are imperative to the success of the company. Cybersecurity governance provides the framework for defining and managing all other cybersecurity policies, plans and procedures. Our Information Governance Board assists Elbit America in developing and implementing a framework to ensure information is readily available to those that need it while still meeting existing compliance requirements. Their mission is to improve the creation, accuracy, availability and use of Elbit America’s information. Additionally, our Cybersecurity Governance Policy applies to all business processes and data, information systems and components, personnel and physical areas of Elbit America. The policy applies to all employees, contractors and other individuals with authorized access to Elbit America’s information system.

          Technology Control Plan

          Our Technology Control Plan (TCP) delineates Elbit America’s policies and internal controls to ensure that no unauthorized transfer of Classified Information takes place and that any transfer is limited to what is authorized by license or other approval from the US government. It serves as a guidebook for providing protection for internationally shared information and products and is required by NISPOM (NISP).

          IT Disaster Recovery Plan

          The IT Disaster Recovery plan aims to protect corporate resources and employees, to safeguard the company’s vital records of which the data center has become the custodian, and to guarantee the continued availability of essential IT services. The Plan outlines the actions to implement a sufficient set of procedures for responding to a disaster that involves our data centers and their services.

          Risk Assessments

          The quality and integrity of Elbit America’s risk assessments are used to determine the likelihood and magnitude of harm that affect an information system and ultimately, the company itself in the event of a security breach. By determining the amount of risk that exists, we are in a better position to determine how much of that risk should be mitigated and what controls should be used to achieve that mitigation. Without risk assessments, the potential exists that the organization can leverage security controls to protect information systems. Every quarter, our cyber security experts brief the Board on how we are doing in terms of Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) and cyber security. 

          Employee Trainings

          We use a third-party software to conduct an annual Security Awareness Training, which is deployed companywide each October during National Security Awareness Month. The training is mandatory for all employees and helps them learn to identify security threats. Additional mandatory cyber security training is also given annually to the “Cleared” Employees. We test our employees using simulated phishing campaigns. These campaigns are delivered corporatewide and run for a week at a time.
