DESCRIPTION OF THE TECHNICAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL SECURITY MEASURES
This Annex 2 includes the description of the technical and organizational security measures implemented by the Data Processor.
Cloud4Wi currently observes the security practices described in this Annex 2. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary otherwise agreed to by data exporter, Cloud4Wi may modify or update these practices at its discretion provided that such modification and update does not result in a material degradation in the protection offered by these practices. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings as set forth in this DPA.
- a) Access Control
- i) Preventing Unauthorized Product Access
Outsourced processing: Cloud4Wi hosts its Service with outsourced cloud infrastructure providers. Additionally, Cloud4Wi maintains contractual relationships with vendors in order to provide the Service in accordance with this DPA. Cloud4Wi relies on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and vendor compliance programs in order to protect data processed or stored by these vendors.
Physical and environmental security: Cloud4Wi hosts its product infrastructure with multi-tenant, outsourced infrastructure providers. The physical and environmental security controls are audited for SOC 2 Type II and ISO 27001 compliance, among other certifications.
Authentication: Cloud4Wi implemented a uniform password policy for its customer products. Customers who interact with the products via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data.
Authorization: Customer data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Customers via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Customers are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in each of Cloud4Wi’s products is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options. Authorization to data sets is performed through validating the user’s permissions against the attributes associated with each data set.
Application Programming Interface (API) access: Public product APIs may be accessed using an API key
- ii) Preventing Unauthorized Product Use
Cloud4wi implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.
Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignment, and traditional firewall rules.
Intrusion detection and prevention: Cloud4Wi implemented a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect hosted customer websites and other internet-accessible applications. The WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.
Static code analysis: Security reviews of code stored in Cloud4Wi’s source code repositories is performed, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.
Penetration testing: Cloud4wi maintains relationships with industry recognized penetration testing service providers for four annual penetration tests. The intent of the penetration tests is to identify and resolve foreseeable attack vectors and potential abuse scenarios.
iii) Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements
Product access: A subset of Cloud4Wi’s employees have access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, to troubleshoot potential problems, to detect and respond to security incidents and implement data security. Access is enabled through “just in time” requests for access; all such requests are logged. Employees are granted access by role, and reviews of high risk privilege grants are performed periodically. Employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months.
Background checks: All Cloud4Wi employees undergo a background check prior to being extended an employment offer, in accordance with the applicable laws. All employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with company guidelines, non-disclosure requirements, and ethical standards.
- b) Transmission Control
In-transit: Cloud4Wi makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for every Splash Page hosted on the Cloud4Wi products. Cloud4Wi HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.
At-rest: Cloud4Wi stores user passwords following policies that follow industry standard practices for security. With effect 25 May 2018, Cloud4Wi has implemented technologies to ensure that stored data is encrypted at rest.
- c) Input Control
Detection: Cloud4Wi designed its infrastructure to log extensive information about the system behavior, traffic received, system authentication, and other application requests. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities.Cloud4Wi personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.
Response and tracking: Cloud4Wi maintains a record of known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, Cloud4Wi will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure.
Communication: If Cloud4Wi becomes aware of unlawful access to Customer data stored within its products, Cloud4Wi will: 1) notify the affected Customers of the incident; 2) provide a description of the steps Cloud4Wi is taking to resolve the incident; and 3) provide status updates to the Customer contact, as Cloud4Wi deems necessary. Notification(s) of incidents, if any, will be delivered to one or more of the Customer’s contacts in a form Cloud4Wi selects, which may include via email or telephone.
- d) Availability Control
Infrastructure availability: The infrastructure providers use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure a minimum of 99.95% uptime. The providers maintain a minimum of N+1 redundancy to power and network.
Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy and fail-over protections during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to multiple durable data stores and replicated across multiple availability zones.
Online replicas and backups: Where feasible, production databases are designed to replicate data between no less than 1 primary and 1 secondary database. All databases are backed up and maintained using at least industry standard methods.
Cloud4Wi’s products are designed to ensure redundancy and seamless failover. The server instances that support the products are also architected with a goal to prevent single points of failure. This design assists Cloud4Wi operations in maintaining and updating the product applications and backend while limiting downtime.
