All passwords are set by the relevant users and we don’t have access to these. The site is also protected by a firewall that will automatically block the IP of anyone failing to log in with incorrect details multiple times to protect your data.

What data breach procedures we have in place

As part of the website firewall, we are notified if someone fails to log in too many times and is blocked by the website. We are also notified when an admin user logs in. In the event of a data breach, we will be aware as part of this automatic reporting, we will then lockdown the website and carry out an investigation to find out what if any information could have been accessed, and take the appropriate steps.
