Frequently asked questions
What does SOC 2 Type 1 Certification mean?
SOC 2 (System and Organization Controls) Type 1 Certification is an auditing procedure that evaluates a service organization's security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy controls. It demonstrates that the organization has met the latest security demands and ensures compliance with industry standards.
What is the Microsoft Azure cloud?
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service created by Microsoft that offers a range of cloud services, including computing power, storage, and networking. It enables businesses to build, deploy, and manage applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers, ensuring enhanced performance, stability, and scalability.
What is 2048-bit SSL encryption?
2048-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption is a security technology that establishes an encrypted link between a web server and a browser, ensuring that all data passed between them remains private and secure. The 2048-bit encryption key length offers a higher level of security than lower bit encryption, making it much more difficult for hackers to break the encryption.
What is role-based permissions and access controls?
Role-based permissions and access controls are security mechanisms that allow system administrators to grant or restrict user access to specific system resources based on their role or job responsibilities. This ensures that users only have access to the information and functions they need, improving overall system security and reducing the risk of unauthorized access.
What is two-factor authentication (2FA)?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security measure that requires users to provide two different forms of identification to access a system or service. This typically involves a combination of something the user knows (e.g., a password) and something the user possesses (e.g., a physical token or a one-time code sent to their smartphone). This extra layer of security helps protect against unauthorized access.
What is the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield?
The EU-U.S. Privacy Shield is a framework designed to ensure that companies transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States comply with data protection requirements. This framework ensures that data transfers meet high standards of privacy and security, protecting the rights of individuals whose data is being transferred.
What is the difference between data processor and data controller?
A data controller is an entity that determines the purposes and means of processing personal data, while a data processor is an entity that processes personal data on behalf of the controller. In the context of Safefood 360°, the customer is the data controller, and Safefood 360° serves as the data processor, handling the customer's data according to their instructions and requirements.
What is an open API integration?
An open API (Application Programming Interface) integration allows different software applications to communicate with each other and share data. In the case of Safefood 360°, the open API integration allows the platform to connect with other systems, such as ERP or CRM software, enabling seamless data exchange and enhancing overall IT ecosystem security and performance.
What is Microsoft .NET technology?
Microsoft .NET is a software development framework that provides a large class library and various programming languages that enable developers to build applications for Windows, web, mobile, and other platforms. Safefood 360° uses .NET technologies, such as ASP.NET and C#, to create a robust, secure, and efficient application that runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud.
What is the importance of penetration testing and vulnerability scans?
Penetration testing and vulnerability scans are essential security practices that help identify and address potential weaknesses in a software application or network. By conducting regular tests and scans, organizations can proactively address vulnerabilities, improve security measures, and reduce the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches.
How does Safefood 360° ensure data retention compliance?
Safefood 360° ensures data retention compliance by adhering to international standards and regulations, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, and ISO/IEC 27001:2005. By following these guidelines, Safefood 360° ensures the proper handling, storage, and disposal of customer data, helping maintain privacy and security throughout the data lifecycle.
What is the role of two-factor authentication (2FA) in Safefood 360°?
Two-factor authentication (2FA) is an additional layer of security that requires users to provide two forms of identification to access an account or system. In Safefood 360°, 2FA can be enabled at the user level or company-wide, using smartphone devices and SMS. By implementing 2FA, Safefood 360° enhances the security of user accounts and reduces the risk of unauthorized access.
What is Microsoft Azure and how does it benefit Safefood 360°?
Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that provides a range of cloud services, including computing power, storage, and networking capabilities. By hosting and supporting Safefood 360° on the Azure cloud, the platform benefits from enhanced performance, stability, and scalability, enabling continuous innovation and ensuring the platform can adapt to the changing needs of businesses over time.
How does Safefood 360° manage fault tolerance and redundancy?
Safefood 360° is designed to be fault-tolerant and redundant, with infrastructure in place to automatically continue operations in the event of a failure. The platform is monitored 24/7, with redundancies in place for effective data migration if necessary. In case of a catastrophic failure affecting an entire data center, Safefood 360° can be made available at a backup location for uninterrupted use.
