Information Security — A Partnership in Information Protection
What We Do
We employ industry-proven standards and technologies to protect information in our environment. We:
- protect our systems and networks from the Internet with Firewall systems
- employ Intrusion Detection software, and monitor for unauthorized access
- maintain and selectively review activity logs, to prevent unauthorized activities from occurring within our computing environment
- use encryption technology to protect certain sensitive information that is transmitted over the Internet
- control access to your information inside our company by limiting employee access to systems and data based on business requirements
- build Information Security into our systems and networks by following our Information Security Policy and Standards; these documents are based on internationally respected security standards, applicable laws and regulations, and industry-based ’best practices’
- provide Information Security awareness courses and materials to our employees, to educate and motivate them in applying our Information Security Policy and Standards to their job every day
Our employees are responsible for upholding our Information Security policy and standards.
What You Can Do
- You, too, can make an important contribution to protect the security of your access to our services. You can help prevent unauthorized access by following these security tips:
- Protect your user ID (user name) and password by keeping them unique and known only to you. These are keys for accessing your information on our system; please protect them.
- Choose a password that is at least 6 characters, a combination of letters and numbers, and difficult to guess. Avoid using an easily guessed password such as a word found in the dictionary, your name, your significant other's name, your pet’s name, your birthday, or other such identifying choices.
- Avoid writing your password in a place where others can view it.
