Security

We are dedicated to providing a high level of security to our customers

At Catalytic, we combine a thorough security framework, internal and external audits, and appropriately trained employees to ensure that your data is protected. Please see below for an overview of the security controls, procedures and support we have in place. 

 

Control environment

  • As of 6/30/19, Catalytic has achieved successful completion of both SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA attestation examinations, performed by an independent CPA firm
  • We have a dedicated compliance team that implements and monitors security-related controls
  • The Catalytic security framework consists of policies, procedures and controls that align to SOC 2, HIPAA, and GDPR requirements
  • We utilize a third-party, cloud-based data center, which maintains network architecture and data layer controls that meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations. The data center has several security-related certifications, including ISO 27001, SOC 2, FedRAMP, HIPAA, NIST, and several others
  • Our employees attend security awareness training, and are required to adhere to our code of conduct
  • Annual risk assessments are performed to ensure we are addressing current as well as emerging risks
  • We follow change management procedures for all changes to the organization and the Catalytic platform

 

Physical security

  • Our data centers also have controls in place to protect from man-made and natural security risks. Controls are in place at the perimeter, infrastructure, and environmental layers to ensure strong physical protection, and are audited per the security certifications listed above
  • Our offices are secured with keycards, automatic locks, alarms and security cameras

 

Application and network security

  • We have a dedicated QA department that tests all new features before release
  • Our testing and staging environments are separate from the production environment, and no actual customer data is ever used for testing
  • We have automated vulnerability scans that run at regular intervals
  • We engage a third party auditor to perform quarterly penetration testing
  • We have automated monitoring, logging, and system alerts
  • We control logical system access, and review regularly

 

Encryption

  • Customer data is encrypted in transit and at rest, and within the database

 

Availability

  • We perform regular backups of customer data
  • We have documented incident response and disaster recovery procedures and dedicated response teams

 

Other product security features

  • Our customers have the option to use single sign-on (SSO) for their teams
  • Access and privileges in Catalytic are governed by role, as we provide different levels of user permissions, including "admin," based on the type of access required
  • Customers can mark sensitive data as "confidential" to ensure that only approved members of their teams can see certain information or processes

 

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

We have several policies and controls that address GDPR requirements. The controls include areas such as options for opt-in/opt out of communications, procedures surrounding data retention, data breach procedures, DPIA (Data Protection Impact Assessment) procedures, procedures related to subcontractors, as well as ensuring the proper treatment of individual’s rights and subject access requests. This new regulation will help enhance the security surrounding the personal data of all Catalytic customers.
