The appearance of shortened URLs more than 10 years ago, have made sharing website links easier. However, shortened URLs are a growing security risk as they do not allow users to confirm that a link is what it claims to be before they click on it.

RMS and Truecrypt was introduced to staff over the last few years for the encryption of sensitive information at file level.
To further prevent unauthorised access to corporate data on computers or minimise the risk of data exposure in the event of loss, full hard disk encryption will be introduced to staff in 2014 in stages. More details will be released nearer the date of implementation.
Full hard disk encryption is a IT Security requirement and all NP-issued desktop computers or notebooks will be encrypted using BitLocker (Windows-based machines) or FileVault (Macintosh machines) during the exercise. By encrypting the entire hard disk, all files will be encrypted.
