The Group joins the coalition to strengthen cyber defense and promote a secure digital environment, aligning with its global cybersecurity strategy.


Solvay has become a member of the Cyber Security Coalition, a key step to strengthen its cyber defense capabilities and build a solid and secure digital ecosystem. This membership aligns with Solvay’s dedication to protecting the integrity of its operations, the security of its supply chain and the privacy of customer data against the constantly changing landscape of cyber threats.

As digitalization continues to transform industries worldwide, cybersecurity becomes a critical aspect of operational resilience. Solvay’s engagement with the Coalition is part of its global cybersecurity policy, designed to protect the Group and its network of partners, customers, and stakeholders. 

The Cyber Security Coalition brings together a variety of stakeholders, including private sector entities, academic institutions, and governmental bodies, all committed to strengthening Belgium’s digital defenses. Solvay's participation provides a valuable opportunity to exchange knowledge, best practices, and discover innovative strategies to stay ahead of emerging threats, mitigate risks, and strengthen the resilience of critical infrastructure.

"At Solvay, we view cybersecurity not just as a measure of defense but also as a collective responsibility,” said Brad Rector, Solvay's Chief Information Officer. “Our alliance with the Cyber Security Coalition empowers us to contribute more effectively to the national and international cybersecurity landscape, using shared knowledge to enhance our defenses and support our mission of delivering essential chemical solutions safely."

Though centered on Belgium's cyber defense, the Coalition's work is expected to significantly benefit Solvay on a global scale. The international diversity of its members complements the Group’s  worldwide operations, providing valuable perspectives for addressing widespread cybersecurity issues.
