How Do We Keep Your Information Safe?

We are committed to ensuring the security and confidentiality of your information.

 

There are a number of ways we do this;

  • Staff receive annual training about protecting and using personal data

  • Policies are in place for staff to follow and are regularly reviewed

  • We check that only the minimum amount of data is shared or accessed

  • We use ‘smartcards’ to access systems, this helps to ensure that the right people are accessing data – people with a ‘need to know’

  • We use encrypted emails and storage which would make it difficult for someone to ‘intercept’ your information

  • We report and manage incidents to make sure we learn from them and improve

  • We put in place contracts that require providers and suppliers to protect your data as well

  • We do not send your data outside of the EEA
