Your clients include many who have been sexually abused by Catholic clergy
Your company has made major investments in technology to assist you in your work. One of those investments includes software, the provider and technical support for this software is on known by some to have been directly connected with the Vatican and their record shows that in the past they have had numerous deep connections and involvement with the Vatican with regard to the sexual abuse of children including one or more of your clients. This person has deep knowledge of the sexual abuse of children and in particular knowledge of the covering up of those abuses within the Catholic Church yet to the best of your knowledge and inquiries this person did not bring any of this knowledge forward to the Royal Commission, police or other Civil investigative bodies over the 5 year period of the existence of the Royal Commission into the Institutional responses to child sexual abuse. You have information/knowledge that strongly suggests they have had contact and have provided evidence/information to internal Church entities and their lawyers over an extended period and that includes extensive knowledge about one or more of your clients.
You look further and find evidence that the software support provider/contact has been directly involved in the blocking and stymieing and other activities that have denied the Human Rights for an extended period of time of one or more of your clients whose reason for coming to you is to break down or through those barriers established by or in the knowledge your software provider.
Would such a scenario cause you concern?
What steps would you take to manage this situation to ensure the privacy and security of your clients information and data now and on in to the future?
