What does this mean to me as an employee?
I am careful when I work with personal information. I always respect the privacy of the individuals involved and use the information lawfully.
I am especially careful when I wish to share personal information. I do so only if there is a legitimate business reason. If I am in doubt, I seek guidance from the local or regional Legal Counsel.
I only use secure and approved JTI IT solutions to store and share confidential and personal information. I keep my devices and documents secure, and I maintain strong and secure passwords for accessing JTI IT systems, websites and other company assets.
I take extra care when working outside of JTI premises to ensure unauthorized people cannot overhear, see or access confidential information or passwords.
If I receive confidential information and I am unsure of its origin or intended purpose, I speak to my manager. I never respond to suspicious messages requesting confidential information and I don’t open links or attachments contained in such messages.
I immediately report any suspected breach of confidentiality or misuse of information to my local or regional Legal Counsel, or a member of the Compliance or Information Security teams.
