The Management supports information security through a clear direction, an outstanding commitment, explicit assignments and recognition of responsibilities.

All staff contribute, each with their own competence and professionalism, to the effectiveness of the Information Security Management System and its compliance with this policy.

The Information Security Management System is subject to systematic review and improvement.
