Therefore, as there is no risk to the client and no break in service that will affect the client experience, there is no applicable policy needed in relation to this specific issue. Information Assurance ■Gartner possesses analysts and consultants with various security clearances, or we will, within reason, acquire those clearances as the client demands. ■Gartner associates are bound by very specific rules around client confidentiality and security given that our clients reveal to us their greatest challenges and difficulties in order that we can help and support them most effectively. Data Restoration ■No client data is retained by Gartner as part of the client’s access to this service and therefore there is no data restoration process related to this service. Service Migration ■There is no need for a Service Migration plan given the nature of the service under discussion. The client is able to complete and conclude the service without any ongoing process being required for transfer of service or information to an alternative provider or successor. At the conclusion of the service described all deliverables and any supporting information is handed over to the client.
