1. the obligation to keep the state secret
The protection of state secrets is a statutory obligation, which must be observed by any unit or individual. The twenty-second article of the regulations on the management of security services stipulates that the key units of public security related to national security and state secrets, as determined by the local people's government above the municipal level of the District, may not hire a foreign - funded, Sino foreign joint venture and Sino foreign cooperation security service company to provide security services. It can be seen that the protection of state secrets is an important part of national security. In particular, it is important to keep in mind the conservative state secrets for the security guards in the state organs, enterprises and institutions involved in state secrets.
2. the obligation to keep the business secret
With the continuous development of China's socialist market economy and the intensification of market competition, business secrets, as a weapon of market competition, have attracted more and more attention to the importance of enterprises. In order to maintain the orderly market competition and the healthy development of market economy, the protection of trade secrets by Chinese law is becoming more comprehensive and concrete. The security services regulations stipulate that social capital can start a security service company, which means that the security service company is an independent market competitor and has its own business secrets. In the process of engaging in security services, security service companies should not only pay attention to protecting their own business secrets, but also be careful not to infringe on others' business secrets.
3. the obligation not to infringe on personal privacy
Personal privacy refers to all things that do not want to be known in the field of personal life. It is information that the parties do not want others to know, interfere with or intrude into. The composition of personal privacy has two important elements, one is that this information is purely personal, not related to public interests and group interests; the two is that this kind of information is not known to others.
It is a statutory obligation not to infringe upon the privacy of another person's privacy, and it is not based on the explicit requirements of others. Security service is a special service industry, while protecting customers' safety and rights, it is also likely to be exposed to some personal privacy of customers. For example, the security personnel in the residential district may master the situation of other people's address, telephone, and may even have a certain understanding of their personal and family conditions, all of which should be attributed to the category of personal privacy. For others' personal privacy, security guards should pay attention to protection, not to infringe on them, or to disclose them at will, otherwise they may violate the relevant laws.
4. protect the customer's unit clearly required to keep confidential information
According to the general principles of civil law, the matters stipulated by the two parties that do not violate the mandatory provisions of the law are protected by law. Therefore, the security unit and the security guard must bear the obligation of confidentiality when the client unit explicitly requests confidential information.
