Guidance

In establishing its systems and controls to address information security risks, an Authorised Person should have regard to:

a. confidentiality: information should be accessible only to Persons or systems with appropriate authority, which may require firewalls within a system, as well as entry restrictions;
b. the risk of loss or theft of customer data;
c. integrity: safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and its processing;
d. non-repudiation and accountability: ensuring that the Person or system that processed the information cannot deny their actions; and
e. internal security: including premises security, staff vetting; access rights and portable media, staff internet and email access, encryption, safe disposal of customer data, and training and awareness.
