BuyerAssist achieved SOC 2 Type II accreditation in April 2023, demonstrating continuous effectiveness of our security controls. BuyerAssist employs data protection and privacy by design, combining enterprise-grade security features with comprehensive audits of our policies, applications, systems, and networks.
We know that maintaining GDPR & privacy compliance is a top priority for your business. That’s why BuyerAssist takes a holistic and personalized approach to compliance, maintaining GDPR compliance ourselves, and enabling your business to set its own compliance preferences, as a controller.
BuyerAssist hosts all its software in Amazon Web Services (AWS) facilities in the USA. All of the BuyerAssist servers are located within a virtual private cloud (VPC), protected by restricted security groups allowing only the minimal required communication to and between the servers.
All data sent to or from BuyerAssist is encrypted using TLS, and all customer data is encrypted using AES-256
Access to all BuyerAssist systems is managed through our identity provider, which automates user provisioning, enforces 2FA, and logs all activity.
All servers are configured using a documented set of security guidelines, and images are managed centrally. Changes to the company’s infrastructure are tracked, and security events are logged appropriately.
Formal security policies and incident response plan
BuyerAssist maintains a set of comprehensive security policies that are kept up to date to meet the changing security environment. These materials are made available to all employees during training and through the company’s knowledge base.
Strict onboarding and offboarding process
Every new hire must pass a thorough background check and attend an InfoSec training course once a year. We instantly disable departing employees’ devices, apps, and access during offboarding.
BuyerAssist monitors employees’ workstations to keep all the checks like disk encryption, screen timeout, strong passwords, and antivirus in place.
Continuous security training
The BuyerAssist Security Team provides continuous education on emerging security threats, performs phishing awareness campaigns, and communicates with employees regularly.
We regularly run internal pen tests and partner with reputable security firms to run external pen tests
All app access is logged and audited. We also use a wide variety of solutions to quickly identify and eliminate threats, including a Web App Firewall (WAF)
Code development is done through a documented SDLC process, and every change is tracked via GitHub. Automated controls ensure changes are peer-reviewed and pass a series of tests before being deployed to production.
We ensure that all of our third-party apps and providers meet our security data protection standards before using them.
