Commitment to Ethics & Integrity
We measure and hold ourselves accountable.
Good corporate governance is the basis for our decision-making and control processes. As part of ensuring we conduct business with the highest standards and integrity, we maintain a structured approach to corporate governance system including clear guidance outlined in the Belden Code of Conduct.
In 2020, we formalized Board oversight of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) through our Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of Belden’s Board of Directors and have adopted our ESG Steering Committee Charter. The Committee is formally responsible for ESG practices and procedures, and related risks and opportunities.

Belden has adopted industry leading practices to protect both Belden assets and customer information. At the direction of the Cybersecurity Subcommittee (part of Belden’s Board of Directors) and internally led by the Chief Information Officer and Cybersecurity Director, Belden has implemented a focused Cybersecurity program including defined practices and specialized personnel responsible for data and cybersecurity. This program continuously assesses and controls cybersecurity risks to acceptable levels.
A comprehensive monitoring and response function continuously analyzes risks and threats at Belden and provides appropriate controls and measures. Belden ensures all associates receive periodic cyber awareness training and are provided the tools and support channels to help Belden remain safe. Belden maintains a dedicated data center for resilience and protection of Belden, employee and customer information assets. Regular testing of business continuity and disaster recovery plans ensure the appropriate planning and forethought have been integrated into operational needs and recovery objectives.
