Information Security Policy
At Collective Minds, information is fundamental to everything we do, from delivering our services, to serving our customers, to making effective decisions. We are proud of our commitment to protecting all of our data as part of a business continuity strategy, risk management, and ongoing efforts to promote a culture of information security.

Furthermore, if anyone observes something in our company that is not in line with this policy, he or she should report this immediately. This can be done either by informing our information security officer (CISO – email@example.com), our Data Protection Officer (DPO – firstname.lastname@example.org) or to any member of the security team.
The entire management team of our company has been involved in creating this policy and is fully committed to making sure we are compliant.
