Sophisticated physical security, perimeter security (firewall, intrusion prevention), access control, authentication, encryption, data transfer, and monitoring solutions prevent unauthorized access from internal and external sources.

Retention and disposal:

If selected for a survey: Records will be retained for one year after the completion of the survey. If not selected for a survey, the record will be deleted after other records have been selected. Opt-outs will be deleted when the individual is no longer eligible for recruiting.
