Home in Place takes both privacy and cyber security very seriously. To address cyber security, we audit our systems annually against two standard frameworks. We actively monitor system logs, patch systems regularly, deploy identification management systems, encrypt data and backups, application whitelisting, deploy latest generation antivirus and firewalls, cyber security policies, train our staff and many other controls recommended by the Australian government and internationally. We also deploy additional controls that we determine enhance our security further beyond these frameworks.
