Security at Alife

Organizational Security

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.

Third-Party Audits

Our  organization  undergoes  independent  third-party  assessments  to  test  our security and compliance controls.

Third-Party Penetration Testing

We perform an independent third-party penetration test 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.

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.

Business Continuity and Disaster Security

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.

Access Security

Permissions and Authentication

Access  to  cloud  infrastructure  and  other  sensitive  tools  are  limited  to  authorized employees who require it for their role. 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.

Password Requirements

All team members are required to adhere to a minimum set of password requirements and complexity for access.

Password Manager

All  company  issued  laptops  utilize  a  password  manager  for  team  members  to manage passwords and maintain password complexity.

Vendor and Risk Management

Annual Risk Assesments

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.
