Systems Security

At ADP, our systems security architecture is based on leading security technologies strategically deployed at key ingress/egress points of our large heterogeneous network, coupled with layered protections at our critical hosts and logical protections at the core data level itself. 

Central to the coordination of incident response activities is the ADP Critical Incident Response Center (CIRC) which monitors, collects alerts/incidents and initiates triage and forensic investigations, incident containment, eradication and recovery.

ADP has developed its security program by incorporating industry leading practices and recognized standards such as the International Standards Organization (ISO) 27001/27002 series.  ADP continually reassesses its information security program to stay current with the ever-evolving threat landscape.

Physical Security

ADP’s approach to physical security has two objectives -- create a safe work environment for ADP associates and protecting sensitive data held in ADP data centers and other strategic ADP locations.

Policies and Procedures

ADP has enacted a global set of security policies and procedures for our locations, associates, and vendors. In addition, ADP has established a security incident reporting team to investigate security incidents with timely notification of any affected client involved in an incident.

Associate Training and Awareness

ADP associates are trained to help protect client confidential information in their possession, be aware of social engineering and phishing attempts against ADP and follow the proper protocols when transmitting or receiving confidential information.
