Cybersecurity and Privacy at SecurityScorecard

SecurityScorecard takes the security and protection of client data and information as paramount in ensuring that confidential client information is protected. This statement is provided as a summary of certain practices relating to information security that are undertaken.

SecurityScorecard security requirements supplement any, and applicable local regulatory requirements, including, but not limited to, data protection and privacy.  

SecurityScorecard has in place commercially accepted standards of physical and IT technology security to prevent information / data loss, damage to data, alteration of data or it’s destruction.

SecurityScorecard follows generally accepted standards and procedures to deal with Cybersecurity threats and risks for the territories in which they operate.  SecurityScorecard utilizes the Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model (C2M2) and Building Security-In Maturity Model (BSIMM) to assess and measure its progress toward these industry best practices.

Access to data is only available to authorised individuals and is controlled and monitored to maintain safety and confidentiality. Employees are educated to limit the potential of them inadvertently compromising information security.

SecurityScorecard agrees to comply with a set of core IT security standards across a range of key areas of IT controls. SecurityScorecard IT / CyberSecurity areas:

  • Security Policies
  • Access Control
  • Virus Control
  • Personal Computer Operating Systems
  • Server and Network Maintenance

  • Employee Training
  • Backup
  • Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Incident Response
  • System Hardening

SecurityScorecard is committed to consistent reassessment of its policies and practices and adjusting implementation where applicable.

Privacy is very important to SecurityScorecard. On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) of the European Parliament took effect, restricting the processing of personal data of individuals within the European Union by companies established in the European Union or who offer goods or services to or monitor the behavior of individuals within the European Union. SecurityScorecard has analyzed its operations in light of these standards and has determined that its operations do not fall into any of these categories and that its operations fall outside GDPR’s coverage.

Nonetheless, because privacy is so important to SecurityScorecard and its clients, SecurityScorecard has decided to voluntarily adopt relevant components of GDPR into a privacy compliance program designed to protect data of SecurityScorecard and its clients concerning individuals in the EU. SecurityScorecard kicked off its program as of Spring 2018 and has since formally blended GDPR standards into its policies, procedures, and operations.  For the details of this program, please contact us at [email protected]

SecurityScorecard is compliant with major privacy, security and regulatory frameworks across the US and globally.
