Customer data privacy and security

Our employees will routinely handle or process personal data relating to the Group’s customers. Employees will only collect and use personal information or data for legitimate regulatory, customer service and the Group’s business purposes. They will:

  • take all reasonable steps to keep personal data confidential and will only disclose this information to personnel in the Group that need to have access to the information for the purposes for which it was collected; and
  • at all times respect any confidential and/or data protection obligations which may be in an agreement between the Group and a third party.

The Group has installed a cyber security framework consisting of multi-layered defense through People, Processes and Technology. The layers of defense, in sequential order, are:
  • People, processes, policy, practices
  • Physical security (data centres, office)
  • Network perimeter security (Internet facing)
  • Internal network security
  • PC and server security
  • Application security
  • Data security

The Group provides regular security awareness and technical trainings to all levels of staff. Reinforcement reminders and alerts are sent to all staff as necessary.

The Group deploys state-of-the-art technology to protect its data.
