- Third-party entities will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement and adhere to security standards and practices consistent with our own.
- Data Protection
- All data will be classified based on its sensitivity and criticality to determine appropriate levels of protection.
- Data classification guidelines will be provided to employees to ensure proper handling, storage, and transmission of data.
- Transmission of sensitive data will be encrypted using industry-standard encryption protocols, such as SSL/TLS.
- Encryption mechanisms will be implemented to protect data at rest, especially for sensitive information stored in
- databases and file systems.
3.3Data Backup and Recovery:
- Regular backups of critical data will be performed and stored securely at an off-site location.
- Backup integrity and restoration processes will be periodically tested to ensure data recoverability in the event of a disaster.
- Firewalls and Intrusion Detection Systems:
- Firewalls and intrusion detection systems will be deployed to protect our network infrastructure from unauthorized access attempts and malicious activities.
- Regular monitoring and analysis of network traffic will be conducted to identify and respond to any potential security incidents.
4.1Secure Remote Access:
- Remote access to our systems will be allowed only through secure channels, such as VPNs (Virtual Private Networks).

- Roles and responsibilities of team members will be defined, and their contact information will be readily available.
5.3Incident Recovery and Lessons Learned:
- Prompt action will be taken to mitigate the impact of security incidents and restore affected systems and data.
- After each incident, a post-incident review will be conducted to identify lessons learned and implement necessary improvements to prevent similar incidents in the future.
- Physical access to data centers, server rooms, and other critical areas will be restricted to authorized personnel only.
- Access control mechanisms such as biometric authentication, key cards, and CCTV surveillance will be implemented as appropriate.
- All computer equipment, storage media, and portable devices will be protected against theft, loss, or unauthorized access.
- Employees will be trained to securely store and handle equipment, especially when working remotely or traveling.
7.Training and Awareness
7.1 Security Awareness Training:
