Data Security (CONT’D FROM PAGE 40)


team is “cyber-first” software development application. This is not so much a security measure as it is a philos- ophy and approach to the type of sensitive information we know we are using. Cyber-first development means that everything that is built and engineered is done with a security-conscious mindset from the very beginning of the process. Understanding that the final product is going to depend on accessing and storing sensitive information leads to an ingrained mindset of safety. This approach, when compared to retrofitting an ex- isting platform to handle sensitive data, leads to a much safer and more secure outfit. This is analogous to building a new construction with the plan to incorporate security measures such as cameras, bulletproof glass, and motion detectors from the get-go, as opposed to adding these measures after the fact to an existing building--while it is possible to do an adequate job with a retrofit, there is no comparison to planning around safety from the outset. Because hackers and nefarious operations make a liv- ing by finding new, creative ways to access sensitive infor- mation, it is important to have an ongoing protocol to make sure the system has not been compromised. Third-parties who have access to sensitive data should provide for on- going support in their service agreement, and it is best practice to ask how this is handled prior to giving anyone access to your data. Our Helios system makes use of a CREST-certified security scanner that checks our entire cloud for over 10,000 vulnerabilities each day. CREST is a not-for-profit accreditation and certification body rep- resenting the technical information security industry. This type of protection is all accounted for in the Software as a Service (SaaS) agreement that customers get when they enlist our services. The Importance Of Checking Your Service Agreements While data leaks are the primary concern, it is not at all uncommon for third parties with access to data to utilize it for their own benefit. This can mean using data to gain a competitive advantage, or even selling data to third par- ties, such as Google, Amazon, or Facebook, depending on the industry. While this is not illegal, it poses potential conflicts of interest and ethical dilemmas. It is important to check your service agreements to see if and how your data might be being used. Helios does not use customer data for any reason other than to serve it directly back to them by improving the uptime and efficiency of their cor- rugated operation. We never use it to gain a competitive advantage by learning about competing operations, nor do we sell it to advertisers or other third parties, as we qualify this as unethical. Data Security Is Always Paramount The importance of data security is agnostic--it spans industries, sizes of operations, functions of products, and types of users. But regardless of how innovative a new technology may be, including machine learning, artificial
