This document represents some key points of an online security policy
- Traditional password protection on a laptop offers limited defence against a determined attacker because the attacker has unconstrained access to the physical device. Modern complex password techniques offer more protection but are not currently on widespread use.
- The physical security controls that are possible within an NHS buildings environment are not available outside of that environment; therefore if procedural and personal controls of the laptop are breached the only effective technical measure that can be applied is cryptography. The Department of Health and NHS Connecting for Health provide well defined guidance based upon recommendations made by CESG and other good practice which if followed provides an adequate level of security. This includes pointers to relevant schemes and products suitable for protecting NHS information.
- Additional information on laptop protection and evaluated products is available through the CESG Internet website at www.cesg.gov.uk
- Encryption products are not difficult but must be used correctly in accordance with defined procedures, in particular the password and any token must be kept separate from the laptop; these are effectively the encryption key. Data is therefore only protected by encryption when the laptop is powered off and not in normal use.
The laptop you use in your workplace stores very sensitive data of many important people. Which from the actions below is in accordance with the security policy mentioned above?CorrectIncorrect

Look carefully at the letter below:
Dear Mr. Stevenson:
Your company recently installed rain gutters on my house in Country Meadows. We paid $4545 for new gutters on every face of our two-story home. The work took place on 10/2/2019. Attached is a copy of the invoice showing the work was completed and paid in full.
We were very happy with the service we received and your crew was very kind and professional. Unfortunately, during the heavy snow storm we had last week, our new rain gutters on the north side of our house fell off. While I am not an expert, it appears that several of the fasteners were inadvertently left out during installation.
We ask that you send your crews back out to complete the job that was paid for, replacing the gutters that have detached and inspecting the remainder of the gutters for similar issues.
We look forward to hearing back from you in the next several days to confirm when you will be returning. We expect to see your crew within the next three weeks and will wait until then before contacting the state contractor’s license board.
Feel free to contact me at (123) 456-7890 to schedule or visit or with any questions or concerns.
