As a company that has achieved ISO 27001, SOC 2 Type II, CCPA, GDPR, EU-US Data Privacy Framework and HIPAA certifications, we understand the critical importance of information security in today's digital landscape. The increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks highlight the necessity for businesses to prioritize security to safeguard their data and ensure the trust and confidence of their clients. By implementing industry-standard security measures and best practices, we demonstrate our unwavering commitment to the protection of sensitive information and the preservation of the integrity of our operations. We take pride in the rigorous security protocols we have in place and are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of security excellence.
How has this been accomplished?
As an organization, we understand the importance of maintaining compliance with security practices and standards. That's why we utilize security and compliance automation platforms to ensure that we remain continuously compliant and adhere to the relevant security protocols.
We have a centralized platform that automates the assessment and monitoring of various security controls and procedures. By integrating with our existing systems and tools, our platforms provide us with a comprehensive view of our security posture, identifying any potential issues and ensuring that we are always up to date with the latest security protocols and industry standards. This gives us the confidence that we are following industry best practices and that we are providing a secure environment for our customers and stakeholders.
What happens if something becomes out of compliance?
If something were to fall out of compliance, our compliance automation platform would detect the issue and alert us immediately. This would allow us to take prompt action to address the problem and get back into compliance quickly. By using a compliance automation platform like this, we can stay on top of our compliance obligations and take proactive steps to ensure that we remain compliant with the relevant security practices and standards. This gives us the confidence that we are providing a secure environment for our clients and stakeholders and helps us to maintain our reputation as a reliable and trustworthy organization.
Procedures & Controls
Secure Policies & Procedures
Written information security policies and procedures ensure that the company has documented and tested controls in place to protect customer data and respond to security incidents effectively.
Vulnerability & Penetration Testing
Regular vulnerability and penetration testing help to identify and address potential security weaknesses before they can be exploited by attackers. Cal.com undergoes an external penetration test of our web application annually by a third party to identify any security vulnerabilities we may have, this will then allow us to raise these issues internally and remediate them immediately. An official report is created to Cal.com stating that the issues found are now fixed. We also conduct regular internal penetration tests. We also employ automated vulnerability scanning within our code and it’s dependencies.
Encryption of sensitive data helps to ensure that the data cannot be accessed or read by unauthorized parties. Having our database encrypted allows customers to feel safe when using our product as it safeguards data when in transit or at rest.
Multi-factor authentication helps to prevent unauthorized access to the company's systems, which can help to protect customer data from theft or tampering.
Secure Development Lifecycle
Multi-factor authentication helps to prevent unauthorized access to the company's systems, which can help to protect customer data from theft or tampering. All changes to our codebase are protected with branch protection, meaning that to be able to push a new code change to production, the code change must have been approved by another engineer, as well as the code change has to pass a number of automated tests that check for security issues introduced by the code or it’s dependencies, as well as end-to-end testing and more. This way, no bad actors internal or external to Cal.com are able to push malicious code due to our secure reviews process.
Ongoing monitoring of system access logs and network traffic helps to detect and respond to potential security incidents, reducing the likelihood of customer data being compromised.
Employee Training & Awareness
Regular training and awareness programs for employees help to ensure that they are equipped to handle customer data securely, reducing the likelihood of human error or intentional data breaches. We make it a priority that these are completed straight away for all new employees and completed annually for all existing employees.
Access Controls & Background Checks
Access controls and background checks for employees, third-party vendors and service providers help to ensure that they are trustworthy and can be relied upon to handle customer data securely. Background checks are performed on all new hires the company may conduct as a way for Cal.com to establish confidence in the employee we are choosing to hire. Additionally, only giving access to applications for particular applications is important in staying compliant. Every quarter we review application access and access levels for all employees to make sure they only have access to applications which are required to perform their job role.
Third-party Audits and Assessments
Regular third-party audits and assessments provide an independent validation of the effectiveness of the company's information security controls and procedures, providing customers with confidence that their data is being handled securely.
Cal.com utilizes intrusion detection systems to continuously monitor our systems for potential threats that may occur at any time. Knowing at the early stages that a threat could be critical allows us to act quickly and efficiently to prevent any threats from causing short or long term issues.
At Cal.com, we consider the security of our systems a top priority. But no matter how much effort we put into system security, there can still be vulnerabilities present.
If you discover a vulnerability, we would like to know about it so we can take steps to address it as quickly as possible. We would like to ask you to help us better protect our clients and our systems.
