Security Program Highlights
CrowdSmart has successfully completed the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II examination in recognition of its commitment to information security. Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls) defines criteria for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles” — security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy.
CrowdSmart encrypts data at rest and in transit for all of our customers. We use tools like Amazon Web Service’s Key Management System (KMS) to manage encryption keys and Secrets Manager (SM) to manage application credentials and authentication tokens.
CrowdSmart employs world class services for system vulnerability scanning and penetration testing. CrowdSmart also uses high-quality static analysis tooling provided by GitHub Advanced Security and others such as dependabot, rackattack, npm and rails audit to secure our product at every step of the development process. Our software engineering team is trained on an ongoing basis in secure coding practices to progressively upskill their secure coding skills.
CrowdSmart uses Amazon Web Services to host our applications. We make extensive use of the security products embedded within the AWS ecosystem. In addition, our backend cloud infrastructure is protected in real time by TrendMicro CloudOne security services to featuring malware attack and unauthorized access prevention, activity and integrity monitoring and live log inspection
In addition, we deploy our application using containers run on AWS managed services, meaning we typically do not manage servers or EC2 instances in production.
