  • In our secure files, on our laptops and our mobile phones, we hold the telephone numbers of about 300 individuals we sometimes call by phone to deliver our cyber security services
  • In our secure files, on our laptops and our mobile phones, we hold the employment records of about 30 current and former employees.  This data includes personal address, age, financial information, criminal record checks and medical records (eg dates that staff were sick).
