Need to keep your data secure against unauthorized access, as well as unexpected loss?
SciCord uses multiple layers of security to prevent unauthorized access of data, both from within your organization and outside it. Backups and redundancy insure against hardware failures or corruption.
The application provides or facilitates user security, electronic records, electronic signatures, sample management, document editing, document review, document lifecycle, and audit trails. SciCord also produces validated templates, which run on a validated core system to support specific scientific work processes.
The SciCord Platform is a “Closed System” and complies with GxP standards as well as CFR 21 Part 11. Users are subject to restrictions controlling what they can see and edit, as decided by your admin team. These controls can be set once on implementation, or controlled more finely on an ongoing basis.
The SciCord solution implements User identity & password maintenance by enforcing several security rules:
The application provides a “screen-lock”-like functionality that requires User password challenge after a configured amount of time of no activity on screen (mouse or keyboard movement)
The SciCord Solution implements a matrix of roles and permissions to restrict access to system functionality based on role. SciCord provides 10 default roles including Scientist, Supervisor, and Reviewer. Customer-specific “Custom” roles may also be defined. Each role is then assigned a set of permissions to enable activities to be performed such as document review.
Data is stored securely on the Microsoft Azure platform. All data transmitted by or stored in the SciCord Solution is encrypted (in transit and at rest).
Data backups occur at:
SciCord also conducts routine Penetration and Vulnerability testing, contracting expert third-party organizations to execute penetration tests and vulnerability scanning to manage security risks.
