How NCS Canada Protects Your Security and Data Privacy

Discover Security and Data Privacy at NCS Canada: Your Safety First

At NCS Canada, we prioritize your security and data privacy through a range of advanced measures. Understanding the increasing risks associated with data breaches, we have implemented robust security protocols to ensure that our clients’ information remains safe and secure. Our commitment to security is unwavering, and we continually strive to improve our systems and processes.

Advanced Security Measures

  • Biometric Access Control

Biometric access control is a critical component of our security infrastructure. By using unique biological characteristics such as fingerprints and facial recognition, we ensure that only authorized personnel can access sensitive areas within our premises. This method significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access and enhances overall security.

  • CCTV Surveillance
    Our premises are equipped with state-of-the-art CCTV surveillance systems that operate around the clock. These systems provide continuous monitoring and recording, deterring potential intruders and ensuring that any suspicious activity is promptly identified and addressed.

Data Privacy Protocols

  • Prohibition of Personal Items

To prevent data breaches, we enforce strict policies that prohibit personal items such as smartphones, USB drives, and other electronic devices within sensitive areas. This measure minimizes the risk of data being inadvertently or intentionally removed from our secure environment.

  • IP Authentication
    We utilize IP authentication to secure network access, ensuring that only authorized devices can connect to our systems. This method helps prevent unauthorized access and protects sensitive data from potential cyber threats.

 

  • USB Port Restrictions
    USB ports are often a gateway for data breaches. At NCS Canada, we have restricted the use of USB ports to prevent the unauthorized use of external hard drives and other storage devices. This measure helps protect against data theft and unauthorized data transfers.

Certifications and Compliance

  • ISO 27001 Certification

ISO 27001 is an internationally recognized standard for information security management. Our certification demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the highest security standards and continuously improving our information security management system (ISMS).

  • ISO 9001 Certification
    ISO 9001 certification highlights our dedication to quality management. This standard ensures that we consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements, enhancing customer satisfaction.

Secured Workplace

  • Creating a Secured Workplace
    The concept of a Secured Workplace is integral to our operations at NCS Canada. It involves creating an environment where security measures are seamlessly integrated into daily activities, ensuring that data privacy is maintained at all times. From secure access controls to stringent data handling protocols, every aspect of our workplace is designed to protect our clients’ information.
