Information Security and Privacy

 
Organizational Security
All SilkRoad employees are required to complete security, privacy and compliance training during their onboarding experience and on an annual basis. We believe that information security is every employee’s responsibility in their day-to-day operations.

Infrastructure Security
SilkRoad provides best-in-class protection through its hardware, software and operations management. The infrastructure layer is designed in a defense and depth approach to provide the highest levels of system confidentiality, integrity and availability.

Operational Security
SilkRoad leverages industry-leading anti-malware solutions to ensure that any malicious behavior that attempts to penetrate the firewall, IPS and DMZ is caught at the server level and eradicated. SilkRoad leverages security solutions to continuously monitor the performance and safety of its solutions and network to mitigate risks and prevent system delays or outages.

 
 

System Monitoring and Redundancy

System Monitoring

SilkRoad’s IT infrastructure is subject to annual penetration testing and scanned monthly for vulnerabilities using industry-leading technology. A portfolio of tools is used to alert responsible groups of component failures and thresholds indicating problems.

 

System Redundancy

SilkRoad strives to eliminate any single point of failure by maintaining a highly available, secure environment that is ready for immediate failover. This is done through process flow among multiple devices and multiple service providers. This function is tested annually through our SOC 2 audit.

Data security shield governance

Security governance, risk and compliance

These policies and practices are evaluated semi-annually through internal review and annually by an independent SOC 2 audit.

Encryption PII

Personally Identifiable Information

Data commonly accepted as sensitive and needing encryption would be social security numbers, drivers license numbers and bank account numbers, as well as other fields determined by the client.

 

SilkRoad Technology clients can remain confident their data is protected, and the usability and availability of their data are preserved.
