Sensitive data Processed (if applicable) and applied restrictions or safeguards that fully take into consideration the nature of the data and the risks involved, such as for instance strict purpose limitation, access restrictions (including access only for staff having followed specialised training), keeping a record of access to the data, restrictions for onward transfers or additional security measures.

The following applied restrictions and safeguards include:
· Encryption at rest within the database using certificate based AES-256 Transparent Database Encryption (TDE)
o The above encrypts the data files, index files, and transaction files
o This prevents unauthorized restores, as the certificate is required for database restoration
· Encryption in flight on public untrusted networks using TLS 1.2 or higher
· Heightened access control in accordance with the principle of least privilege
o At least quarterly user audits
o Production environment is physically and logically isolated from NAVEX’s coporate network
· Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools are utilized
o Log aggregation and alerting is managed by the SIEM
o Events are captured within the SIEM

· Onward transfers are strictly limited to approved sub-processing activites
· Appropriate training is provided to all personnel with access
In addition to the foregoing, the measures set forth in Appendix 2 to this DPA also apply to these sets of services.
The frequency of the Processing
