The Subcommittee shall have the following specific authority and responsibilities (in addition to any others that the Audit Committee may from time to time delegate to the Subcommittee):

  1. The Board has delegated to the Audit Committee under the Audit Committee’s charter the responsibility and authority to review the Company's risks relating to cybersecurity. The Subcommittee shall assist the Audit Committee in fulfilling this responsibility by regularly reviewing the state of the Company’s cybersecurity, including review of the threat landscape facing the Company and the Company’s strategy to mitigate cybersecurity risks, such as initiatives for identification, protection, detection, response and recovery, and consideration of the impact of emerging cybersecurity developments that may affect the Company.
