See information relating to the Security Measures at Schedule 3 to the Agreement
Schedule 3 Security measures
Ai Media Group currently observes the Security Measures described in this Schedule 3. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings as set forth in the Terms of Service Agreement.
a) Access Control
Preventing Unauthorized Product Access
- Outsourced processing: Ai Media Group’s date processing services are hosted by outsourced cloud infrastructure providers. Ai Media Group maintains contractual relationships with those suppliers which requires them to in order to provide the hosting services in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Legislation. Ai Media Group relies on contractual agreements, privacy policies, and supplier compliance programs in order to protect data processed or stored by these suppliers.
- Physical and environmental security: Ai Media Group hosts its product infrastructure with multi-tenant, outsourced infrastructure providers. The physical and environmental security controls are audited for SOC 2 Type II and ISO 27001 compliance, among other certifications.
- Authentication: Ai Media Group implements a uniform password policy for its customer products. Customers who interact with the products via the user interface must authenticate before accessing non-public customer data.
- Authorization: Customer Data is stored in multi-tenant storage systems accessible to Customers via only application user interfaces and application programming interfaces. Customers are not allowed direct access to the underlying application infrastructure. The authorization model in each of Ai Media Group’s products is designed to ensure that only the appropriately assigned individuals can access relevant features, views, and customization options. Authorization to data sets is performed through validating the user’s permissions against the attributes associated with each data set.
- Application Programming Interface (API) access: Public product APIs may be accessed using an API key or through OAuth authorization.
Preventing Unauthorized Product Use
- Ai Media Group implements industry standard access controls and detection capabilities for the internal networks that support its products.
- Access controls: Network access control mechanisms are designed to prevent network traffic using unauthorized protocols from reaching the product infrastructure. The technical measures implemented differ between infrastructure providers and include Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) implementations, security group assignment, and traditional firewall rules.
- Intrusion detection and prevention: Ai Media Group implements a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to protect hosted customer websites and other internet-accessible applications. The WAF is designed to identify and prevent attacks against publicly available network services.
- Static code analysis: Security reviews of code stored in Ai Media Group’s source code repositories is performed, checking for coding best practices and identifiable software flaws.
- Penetration testing: Ai Media Group maintains relationships with industry recognized penetration testing service providers for four annual penetration tests. The intent of the penetration tests is to identify and resolve foreseeable attack vectors and potential abuse scenarios.
- Bug bounty: A bug bounty program invites and incentivizes independent security researchers to ethically discover and disclose security flaws. Ai Media Group implements a bug bounty program in an effort to widen the available opportunities to engage with the security community and improve the product defenses against sophisticated attacks.
Limitations of Privilege & Authorization Requirements
- Product access: A subset of Ai Media Group’s employees has access to the products and to customer data via controlled interfaces. The intent of providing access to a subset of employees is to provide effective customer support, to troubleshoot potential problems, to detect and respond to security incidents and implement data security. Access is enabled through “just in time” requests for access; all such requests are logged. Employees are granted access by role, and reviews of high risk privilege grants are initiated daily. Employee roles are reviewed at least once every six months.
- Background checks: All Ai Media Group employees undergo a third-party background check prior to being extended an employment offer, in accordance with and as permitted by the applicable laws. All Ai Media Group employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with Ai Media Group guidelines, non-disclosure requirements, and ethical standards.
- In-transit: Ai Media Group makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS) available on every one of its login interfaces and for free on every customer site hosted on the Ai Media Group products. Ai Media Group’s HTTPS implementation uses industry standard algorithms and certificates.
- At-rest: Ai Media Group stores user passwords following policies that follow industry standard practices for security. Ai Media Group has implemented technologies to ensure that stored data is encrypted at rest.
- Detection: Ai Media Group designed its infrastructure to log extensive information about the system behavior, traffic received, system authentication, and other application requests. Internal systems aggregated log data and alert appropriate employees of malicious, unintended, or anomalous activities. Ai Media Group’s personnel, including security, operations, and support personnel, are responsive to known incidents.
- Response and tracking: Media Group maintains a record of known security incidents that includes description, dates and times of relevant activities, and incident disposition. Suspected and confirmed security incidents are investigated by security, operations, or support personnel; and appropriate resolution steps are identified and documented. For any confirmed incidents, Ai Media Group will take appropriate steps to minimize product and Customer damage or unauthorized disclosure. Notification to Customer will be in accordance with the terms of the Terms of Service Agreement.
- Infrastructure availability: The infrastructure providers use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure a minimum of 99.95% uptime. The providers maintain a minimum of N+1 redundancy to power, network, and HVAC services.
- Fault tolerance: Backup and replication strategies are designed to ensure redundancy and fail-over protections during a significant processing failure. Customer data is backed up to multiple durable data stores and replicated across multiple availability zones.
- Online replicas and backups: Where feasible, production databases are designed to replicate data between no less than 1 primary and 1 secondary database. All databases are backed up and maintained using at least industry standard methods.
Ai Media Group’s products are designed to ensure redundancy and seamless failover. The server instances that support the products are also architected with a goal to prevent single points of failure. This design assists Ai Media Group’s operations in maintaining and updating the product applications and backend while limiting downtime.
