TECHNICAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL SECURITY MEASURES
As from the Effective Date, CommPeak will implement and maintain the Security Measures described in this SCHEDULE 2.
1. Security Measures
1.1. Data importer/sub-processor has implemented and shall maintain a security program in accordance with industry standards.
More specifically, the data importer/sub-processor’s security program shall include:
2. Access Control of Processing Areas
2.1. Data importer/sub-processor implements suitable measures in order to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to the data processing equipment (namely telephones, database and application servers, and related hardware) where the personal data are processed or used, including:
2.1.1. establishing security areas;
2.1.2. protection and restriction of access paths;
2.1.3. establishing access authorizations for employees and third parties, including the respective documentation;
2.1.4. all access to the data center where personal data are hosted is logged, monitored, and tracked; and
2.1.5. The data center where personal data are hosted is secured by a security alarm system and other appropriate security measures.
3. Access Control to Data Processing Systems
3.1. Data importer/sub-processor implements suitable measures to prevent their data processing systems from being used by unauthorized persons, including:
3.1.1. use of adequate encryption technologies;
3.1.2. identification of the terminal and/or the terminal user to the data importer/sub-processor and processing systems;
3.1.3. automatic temporary lock-out of user terminal if left idle, identification and password required to reopen;
3.1.4. automatic temporary lock-out of the user ID when several erroneous passwords are entered, log file of events, monitoring of break-in-attempts (alerts); and
3.1.5. all access to data content is logged, monitored, and tracked.
4. Access Control to Use Specific Areas of Data Processing Systems
4.1. Data importer/sub-processor commits that the persons entitled to use their data processing system are only able to access the data within the scope and to the extent covered by their respective access permission (authorization) and that personal data cannot be read, copied, or modified or removed without authorization. This shall be accomplished by various measures including:
4.1.1. employee policies and training in respect of each employee’s access rights to the personal data;
4.1.2. allocation of individual terminals and /or terminal user, and identification characteristics exclusive to specific functions;
4.1.3. monitoring capability in respect of individuals who delete, add, or modify the personal data;
4.1.4. release of data only to authorized persons, including allocation of differentiated access rights and roles;
4.1.5. use of adequate encryption technologies; and
4.1.6. control of files, controlled and documented the destruction of data.
5. Availability Control
5.1. Data importer/sub-processor implements suitable measures to ensure that personal data are protected from accidental destruction or loss, including:
5.1.1. infrastructure redundancy; and
5.1.2. backup is stored at an alternative site and available for restore in case of failure of the primary system.
6. Transmission Control
6.1. Data importer/sub-processor implements suitable measures to prevent the personal data from being read, copied, altered, or deleted by unauthorized parties during the transmission thereof or during the transport of the data media. This is accomplished by various measures including:
6.1.1. use of adequate firewall, VPN and encryption technologies to protect the gateways and pipelines through which the data travels;
6.1.2. certain highly confidential employee data (e.g., personally identifiable information such as National ID numbers, credit or debit card numbers) is also encrypted within the system; and
6.1.3. providing user alert upon incomplete transfer of data (end to end check); and
6.1.4. as far as possible, all data transmissions are logged, monitored, and tracked.
7. Input Control
7.1. Data importer/sub-processor implements suitable input control measures, including:
7.1.1. an authorization policy for the input, reading, alteration, and deletion of data;
7.1.2. authentication of the authorized personnel;
7.1.3. protective measures for the data input into memory, as well as for the reading, alteration, and deletion of stored data;
7.1.4. utilization of unique authentication credentials or codes (passwords);
7.1.5. providing that entries to data processing facilities (the rooms housing the computer hardware and related equipment) are kept locked;
7.1.6. automatic log-off of user ID’s that have not been used for a substantial period of time; and
7.1.7. proof established within data importer/sub-processor’s organization of the input authorization; and
7.1.8. electronic recording of entries.
7.2. Separation of Processing for different Purposes
7.2.1. Data importer/sub-processor implements suitable measures to ensure that data collected for different purposes can be processed separately, including:
18.104.22.168. access to data is separated through application security for the appropriate users;
22.214.171.124. modules within the data importer/sub-processor’s database separate which data is used for which purpose, i.e. by functionality and function;
126.96.36.199. at the database level, data is stored in different normalized tables, separated per module, per Data Controller Customer or function they support; and
188.8.131.52. interfaces, batch processes, and reports are designed for only specific purposes and functions, so data collected for specific purposes are processed separately.
8.1. Data importer/sub-processor will keep documentation of technical and organizational measures in case of audits and for the conservation of evidence. Data importer/sub-processor shall take reasonable steps to ensure that persons employed by it and other persons at the place of work concerned, are aware of and comply with the technical and organizational measures set forth in this SCHEDULE 2.
9.1. Data importer/sub-processor shall implement suitable measures to monitor access restrictions to data importer/sub-processor’s system administrators and to ensure that they act in accordance with instructions received. This is accomplished by various measures including:
9.1.1. individual appointment of system administrators;
9.1.2. adoption of suitable measures to register system administrators’ access logs to the infrastructure and keep them secure, accurate, and unmodified for at least six months;
9.1.3. yearly audits of system administrators’ activity to assess compliance with assigned tasks, the instructions received by the data importer/sub-processor, and applicable laws;
9.1.4. keeping an updated list with system administrators’ identification details (e.g. name, surname, function, or organizational area) and tasks assigned and providing it promptly to data exporter upon request.
