Data Privacy and Security at Artwork Abode
One of the biggest concerns we hear from prospective customers and clients alike is over data security. It’s vital to all companies, regardless of what field you are in, that your data, when outsourced overseas, is handled carefully at every step of a project. That’s why Artwork Abode works carefully to build and maintain carefully manicured security protocols that keep your data safe.
We use a number of security protocols to do this. To start, each of our team members sign a detailed non-disclosure agreement that ensures they maintain the strictest of confidences when working on a project. We also strongly encourage each client to sign a similar document protecting your data and creative properties as a whole. We go above and beyond legal protections as well, ensuring your project details are physical protected.
Information and Data Security Procedures used by Us
For every facility and each member of our staff, we maintain very strict internal security procedures to protect your company’s information and intellectual property. All of the data we receive by email is protected and encrypted, as are all files we work on during the course of a project. Data is backed up off site to ensure there are no data leaks and we return all original source documents and physical storage devices or destroy them as requested by each customer. Only scanned documents or copied files are given to or shared with employees.
We also maintain strict procedures to oversee the access each staff member has to security information in-house:
- Access requires site and employee specific login
- SmartCards are used for access to the building
- Workstations are locked and respond immediately to unauthorized login attempts
- All file transfers, copies and access requires digital signature
- NDAs are signed by all employees when they start working with us
To further protect data and files you provide to us, we use cutting edge technology provided by Cisco to create and maintain a VPN tunnel accessible only by our in-house machines and those you define. These systems are supported and maintained by Cisco Intelligent Switches and Cisco Network Assistants. We also use Cisco’s PIX Firewall technology to block all external ports and ensure all connections are 100% secure at all times.
Data security is only one part of the equation, however. We also utilize surveillance, monitoring and facility security procedures to ensure there are eyes on all workstations and building entrances at all times.
