Security is paramount

Security is of paramount importance to us and our clients. The priority that we place on this has served to differentiate us from many of our peers and attracted numerous high profile and security conscious organisations. You can download our full Security and Privacy Policies at the bottom of this page should you require further details not disclosed below.

We are proud to hold ISO27001; ISO14001 & ISO9001 accreditation in our own right as a business.

Our Software is securely hosted and backed up in fully accredited UK based Memset data centres. Memset are also PGA accredited to provide Official (IL2-IL3) services and official classified services via encrypted PSN overlay.

All staff at Actus are CRB and background checked.

Staff are not able to access passwords or other confidential data and system activity is logged and audited by our Head of Security. All staff sign mandatory confidentiality agreements and take part in regular security awareness training.

All access to the system is via SSL (https), so none of our services can be reached via non-secure connection.

We also provide other optional security measures including access restricted to whitelisted IP addresses, 2 factor authentication, forced password changes and enforced password regulations. We invest in formal penetration testing annually and after any major release

In relation to GDPR and Actus Software, we are a data processor which means that all the data is owned by the client. However, one of the benefits of Actus Performance Management Software is the fact that we have already developed a number of features to proactively help our clients to comply with GDPR more easily. This includes a one off or everytime ‘Opt-In’ pop up box for staff accessing the system. We also have flexible controls in place enabling clients to manage the timeline and frequency of data deletion.

As a business in our own right we are also up-to-date with our own responsibilities around GDPR and are committed to following the ICO guidance in this area.
