  • We use an Extended Validation certificate that allows us to verify ourselves to your browser.
  • We use 256-bit encryption for data in transit over the internet and whilst we hold it.
  • User access is controlled, and all systems have information asset owners who regularly monitor and manage access control lists for their systems.
  • Systems are regularly assessed and assured by internal and external specialists.
  • We monitor our operational environment, which will include alerting and incident event monitoring and response.
  • The operating environment is protected by native application security, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection capability and a web application firewall.
  • The infrastructure is protected with intrusion prevention/detection and host anomaly detection systems. All alerts undergo secure monitoring 24x7.
