Taser maintains security monitoring and incident response policies and practices. These include robust attack detection and incident response procedures.  All footage recorded on Body Worn Video in the MPS is compliant with the legal safeguards and guidance set by the Information Commissioner and the Home Office.

Taser leases server capacity and storage from servers owned by Amazon Inc.  These are managed under an EU and ISO27001 security framework.  Taser's evidence.com service complies with the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services Security Policy.
