Regulations & Policies

We have a series of Policies and Procedures relating to IT Security and data handling. We have a secure data area which holds cohort survey information for life long studies going back 70 years.

The monetary value of these studies to the business is very high, as the data can be used by a lot of researchers for different purposes.

They are among the most long-standing and respected cohort studies going back that amount of time. Maintaining security is very important to us as we hold a subset of NHS data which are personally identifiable; the system therefore has to be given the utmost protection and consideration. In addition, we provide Anti-Virus software, Email Spam Filtering and Information on General Security Precautions.
