View Control Practices  help

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Define and implement a process to clearly identify sensitive data. Consider the business need for confidentiality of the data, and applicable laws and regulations. Communicate and agree upon the classification of data with the business process owners.
  2. Define and implement a policy to protect sensitive data and messages from unauthorised access and incorrect transmission and transport, including, but not limited to, encryption, message authentication codes, hash totals, bonded couriers and tamper-resistant packaging for physical transport.
  3. Establish requirements for physical and logical access to data output. Clearly define and consider confidentiality of output.
  4. Establish rules and procedures for end-user access to data and management and backup of sensitive data. Establish rules and procedures for end-user applications that may adversely impact data stored on end-user computers or networked applications or data (e.g., consider policies on user rights on networked personal computers).
  5. Ensure that appropriate programmes are instituted to create and maintain awareness of security in the handling and processing of sensitive data.
  6. Ensure that sensitive information processing facilities are within secure physical locations. These should be protected by defined security perimeters coupled with appropriate surveillance, security barriers and entry controls. Consider the design of the physical infrastructure to prevent losses from fire, interference or external attack, or unauthorised access. Consider secure output drop-off points for sensitive outputs or transfer of data to third parties.
