How do we keep your data secure?
We keep your data secure in a number of ways. Your data held on computers is kept in secure systems. This means we control access to systems and our computer network, and use tools such as encryption, anti-virus software and password protection. Your data held outside of systems such as paper data is also protected through physically restricting access. We may also use ‘pseudonymisation’ which means key coding your data so that it can be used without identifying you. Your data is reviewed for accuracy, staff receive data protection training and we test our security measures regularly.
