Information security policy

Humana sets guidelines for employees' use of IT and data. This is to protect all data linked to our customers and clients that we work with.


It is necessary for all of us to protect Humana's information well so that no unauthorized person can access sensitive information, in order for us to achieve our business goals and for customers, clients, partners, the public and employees to feel confident in us.

That is why we work actively on data security so that all our information

  • is protected from unauthorized access (confidentiality)
  • can be trusted (accuracy)
  • is available when needed (availability)
  • can be traced back to the person who accessed or changed the information (traceability).


These metrics are used by Humana to continuously monitor and ensure data security.

  • Internal audits of data security and compliance linked to current legislation by Humana conducting random checks in the systems that contain this type of information.
  • Deviations are handled according to current guidelines and the goal is that deviations should always be few and Humana should work actively to ensure that these are not recurring.

Roles and responsibilities

Everyone has a responsibility for ensuring that security works. Anyone who discovers shortcomings in data security must bring it to the attention of their manager or CIO. All employees must also report incidents that could put our information assets at risk.

Business managers/information owners must plan, implement and report back on information security work. Managers at all levels have a responsibility to inform their staff about the data security policy and its applications.
