Employees are guided by a secure table policy and are familiar with signing requirements for data security. Also, all employees have signed confidential information storage contracts, which impose penalties for non-compliance.
Employees are introduced to the importance of data security, rules and responsibilities assigned to them to ensure the protection of data (including personal). Executions of special social engineering attacks help to scrutinize employees’ awareness and, at the same time, train them to identify possible threats of security breach. There is also an employee responsible for data protection in the organization, dissemination of knowledge, and the enforcement of the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the ongoing monitoring.
3. PROCESS CONTROL
A management system has been prepared and implemented to help manage data protection, prevent potentially threatening activities, minimizing the likelihood and impact of negative incidents and risks. The responsibilities, powers and commitments of employees are set out in process descriptions, procedures and instructions. The processing of personal data for specified purposes is carried out in accordance with the established procedures.
Compliance with the laws and regulations of United Kingdom, as well as agreements between JSC Teamgate and customers, suppliers/ subcontractors and partners.
