How will my personal data be stored and kept secure?

The Group applies technical measures to keep personal data stored securely on information systems, including controls over the organisation’s information network perimeter, such as firewall, anti-virus software and back-up/replication measures to prevent data loss.

Access to personal data held on systems is controlled by password and can be monitored by audit records. Sharing of data with third parties is controlled by the use of secure transfer measures such as encypted email and secure file transfer protcols.

The data held on mobile devices (smart phones, tablets and lap-tops) used by staff are encrypted. Staff are equipped with lockable bags for carrying personal data files outside of the office and we apply a clear desk policy in our offices.

The technical measures are supported by training and awareness raising exercises to ensure that staff understand the risks and their responsibilities for keeping personal data secure.
