• >16 hours: 100% of monthly payment
|Approach to resilience||Resilience is achieved by database streaming locally and remotely through encrypted channels.|

Security profiles are assessed at the beginning of each week with reference to vendor information and automated tools.

|Protective monitoring approach||
Protective monitoring uses three levels:

Potential compromise alerts are triggered after binary updates which have not been completed, prompting alerts for system administration team action.
Policy dictates that a compromised machine be reinstalled from scratch.
