    Security Measures for the Integrity and Availability of Data

    To protect personal data from the risks referred to in the previous paragraph, the following security measures are taken.

    To ensure the physical security of the premises where personal data is processed, in addition to the measures provided for by law (for example, Legislative Decree 81/2008) or by internal company rules (seat protection), the following controls are applied:


    - The IT equipment critical for information security (network server, file server, database server, router, switch and firewall) are installed in closed rooms.

    - Access to these areas is granted only to maintenance personnel or authorized personnel.

    - Personnel outside the company can access the premises and remain there for the time necessary to complete the requested activity (for example, cleaning or maintenance), only after explicit approval by the employees and with their constant presence.

    - Data backups - possibly even sensitive ones - are performed on a physically secured hard disk by the designated subject, whose access is allowed to the authorized subjects for their custody, maintenance and to those authorized to process that data.

    - The premises used for archives, are managed directly by the Data Administrator, as for sensitive data, they are closed in special cabinets, while all other data in paper form, are protected by the office and by the employees who work there.



    2. Measurers for Logic (analytical)Security

    To ensure the logical (analytical) security of the information the following manoeuvres are placed in effect:

    - The account will not be reassigned to another user for any reason to another staff member. When a staff member leaves the company, his/her account cannot be reassigned or reused.

    - Periodically, the company will check for any accounts that have not been used within the six months and will proceed to deactivate them. Before cancelling an account, check with the Data Controller whether the need that led to its creation remains and, with its agreement, takes the appropriate actions (cancellation or maintenance).

    - When the reasons for which an account has been created cease to exist (resignation, change of activity, technological changes) the system administrator immediately deactivates the account. The account can be kept in place (but deactivated) until the activities of handover between the previous and the new appointee have been completed; everything must be documented. At this point, it is deleted, along with all the accompanying authorizations.

    - Account authentication is carried out by means of a password. This is secret and must not be communicated to others or left unattended, for example by writing it on diaries or on notes. Unlawful processing made by obtaining a password of a user is in any case attributable to the personal user who did not maintain it correctly.

    - When a password is forgotten, the system administrator verifies that the applicant is the person in charge who is the rightful owner and proceeds to set a new one together with the applicant according to the rules defined above.

    - To surpass emergency situations or to respond to legitimate access requests, the Data Administrator can reset the password of a user for temporary access. The activity must be documented and the legitimate owner of the password must be informed as soon as possible. It will be his care at this point to change the password used for the emergency situation and set a new one, known only to him.

    - Each person in charge has the obligation not to leave the workstation unattended while a work session is activated. If you have to leave the workstation, you must close the session and, in the case of PCs, prevent access to others, using the PC blocking function where possible or alternatively provide a screen-saver program with a password, if neither of them is applicable the user will have to stop the active session.

    - User name and password administrate the right of a person in charge to use a workstation and to access an application. Data processing takes place according to an authorized profile issued according to the effective operational needs of the appointee and in line with the relevant authorizations.

    - The access profile is set up by the Systems Administrator according to the authorizations set forth by the Data Administrator. A copy of the activation request is and the authorization is scanned and later registered in the computer system of the company..

    - Once a year the list of active users and their active profiles are issued to the Data Administrator. He verifies the accuracy of the authorization and the need for it to remain. Therefore, they are confirmed or requested that they be updated, the documentation object of verification will be archived for eventual verification
