protected by periodically updated software-loaded firewalls; the relevant next generation
firewalls control the internet connections of all staff and provide protection against viruses
and similar threats during this control.

to the extent necessary by job descriptions; in case of any change of authority or duty,
systemic authorizations are also updated.
