Securing Your Data with SOC 2 and ISO 27001: Ensuring Trust in Our Informatics Platform

Our platform is strategically built upon the robust Microsoft Azure Cloud infrastructure, recognized globally for its state-of-the-art data security features, comprehensive compliance capabilities, and unmatched scalability. By harnessing Azure’s advanced security controls, robust encryption mechanisms, and continuous monitoring protocols, SciCord guarantees the utmost integrity and confidentiality of your sensitive data, effectively shielding against diverse cyber threats and vulnerabilities.

In addition to leveraging Azure’s built-in security capabilities, SciCord maintains rigorous Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) meticulously crafted to establish a structured framework for implementing and enforcing stringent security measures. These SOPs, accessible to all our clients, encompass critical aspects such as Access Control, Privileged Access Management, Incident Response Planning, Backup and Recovery Procedures, and Change Management Protocols.

Access Control: SciCord employs granular access controls to ensure that only authorized personnel have appropriate access to sensitive data and system functionalities. Role-based access mechanisms are meticulously configured and continuously monitored to prevent unauthorized entry or data breaches.

Privileged Access Management: We implement strict protocols for managing privileged accounts and administrative access, including regular review and rotation of credentials, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and least privilege principles to minimize the risk of insider threats and unauthorized system alterations.

Incident Response Planning: SciCord maintains a comprehensive incident response plan (IRP) designed to swiftly and effectively mitigate security incidents. This proactive approach includes predefined escalation procedures, incident categorization, containment strategies, forensic analysis capabilities, and communication protocols to minimize disruption and ensure prompt resolution.

Backup and Recovery Procedures: To safeguard against data loss and ensure business continuity, SciCord implements robust backup and recovery strategies. Regularly scheduled backups are conducted with strict adherence to industry best practices, ensuring data integrity and availability in the event of hardware failures, natural disasters, or malicious attacks.

Change Management Protocols: We adhere to stringent change management practices to carefully orchestrate and document changes to our systems, applications, and infrastructure. Each change undergoes thorough assessment, testing, approval, and implementation procedures to mitigate risks and maintain system stability and security.



What is SOC 2?

SOC 2 (Service Organization Control 2) stands as a preeminent auditing standard developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA). It focuses on five critical trust service criteria: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of customer data. Achieving SOC 2 compliance underscores our dedication to maintaining a secure environment for your valuable information.
Implementing SOC 2 involves:

  1. Security: Our systems and infrastructure incorporate multiple layers of security controls to thwart unauthorized access and mitigate cyber threats effectively.
  2. Availability: The SciCord platform ensures high availability, minimizing downtime and disruptions to your operations.
  3. Processing Integrity: We maintain data accuracy and completeness through stringent controls over processing activities and data manipulation.
  4. Confidentiality: Your data remains confidential through robust access controls, encryption measures, and policies that prevent unauthorized disclosure.
  5. Privacy: Personal and sensitive information is shielded from unauthorized handling or exposure.

ISO 27001: Elevating Our Security Practices

ISO 27001 serves as a globally recognized information security management standard, providing a systematic approach to safeguarding sensitive data’s confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
Our implementation of ISO 27001 includes:

  1. Risk Assessment: Thorough risk assessments identify potential security threats and vulnerabilities, enabling us to implement effective risk mitigation strategies.
  2. Information Security Policies: Our SOPs guide team members in securely handling data, fostering a culture of heightened security awareness.
  3. Access Control: We enforce stringent access controls to ensure only authorized personnel access sensitive data, minimizing the risk of data breaches.
  4. Regular Auditing and Monitoring: Continuous monitoring and audits of security controls identify and address potential system weaknesses proactively.
  5. Incident Response: A well-defined incident response plan enables us to swiftly minimize the impact of any security incidents and facilitate quick recovery.
