Kent Police operates through intelligence led policing and so depends on information, and also the systems that the information is processed on.

The protection of information stored in manual and electronic systems is essential to the operation of the organisation and Kent and Essex Police must demonstrate compliance with National Policing Information Risk Management Team (NPIRMT) and Community Security Policy (CSP) for any existing or proposed information processing, regardless of where it comes from. 

Other industry standards are also used where appropriate to ensure the protection of personal information is a priority, FIPS-140, ISO/27001, NIST, COBIT-5 and National Cyber Security Centre standards.

Electronic and digital security for new or existing systems which use or manage police information adhere to the Kent and Essex Police Baseline Security Requirement. 

Organisational policy and procedures ensure the protection of police information and the controlled access to it.   The design, operation, use and management of the technology must comply with statutory, regulatory, and contractual security requirements.  

Technical safeguards are enforced within the Kent and Essex Police infrastructure such as firewalls, data encryption, end point detection and response solutions, protective monitoring, segregation of data and role based authorised system access.  Physical access controls to our buildings and files require authorised and appropriate access and are overseen by security cameras.
