Information Security Program
We have an Information Security Program in place that is communicated throughout the organization. Our Information Security Program follows the criteria set forth by the SOC 2 Framework. SOC 2 is a widely known information security auditing procedure created by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Our organization undergoes independent third-party assessments to test our security and compliance controls.
Third-Party Penetration Testing
We perform independent third-party penetration at least annually to ensure that the security posture of our services is uncompromised.
Roles and Responsibilities
Roles and responsibilities related to our Information Security Program and the protection of our customer’s data are well-defined and documented. Our team members are required to review and accept all the security policies.
Security Awareness Training
Our team members are required to go through employee security awareness training covering industry standard practices and information security topics such as phishing and password management.
All team members are required to sign and adhere to an industry-standard confidentiality agreement prior to their first day of work.
Cloud Infrastructure Security
All our services are hosted with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). They employ a robust security program with multiple certifications. For more information on our provider’s security processes, please visit GCP Security.
Data Hosting Security
All our data is hosted in Google Cloud Platform (GCP) databases. These databases are all located in Europe. Please reference the vendor-specific documentation linked above for more information.
Encryption at Rest
All databases are encrypted at rest.
Encryption in Transit
Our applications encrypt in transit with TLS only.
We perform vulnerability scanning and actively monitor for threats.
Logging and Monitoring
We actively monitor and log various cloud services.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
We use our data hosting provider’s backup services to reduce any risk of data loss in the event of a hardware failure. We utilize monitoring services to alert the team in the event of any failures affecting users.
We have a process for handling information security events which includes escalation procedures, rapid mitigation, and communication.
Permissions and Authentication
Access to cloud infrastructure and other sensitive tools is limited to authorized employees who require it for their roles. Where available we have Single Sign-on (SSO), 2-factor authentication (2FA), and strong password policies to ensure access to cloud services are protected.
Least Privilege Access Control
We follow the principle of least privilege with respect to identity and access management.
Quarterly Access Reviews
We perform quarterly access reviews of all team members with access to sensitive systems.
All team members are required to adhere to a minimum set of password requirements and complexity for access.
All company issued laptops utilize a password manager for team members to manage passwords and maintain password complexity.
Annual Risk Assessments
We undergo at least annual risk assessments to identify any potential threats, including considerations for fraud.
Vendor Risk Management
Vendor risk is determined, and the appropriate vendor reviews are performed prior to authorizing a new vendor.
