By Dawson Scott, CTO of Reapit.
As the Chief Technology Officer of Reapit, I have always held the view that the privacy, security, and integrity of our customer data are paramount. Today, I'd like to discuss our ongoing investment in cyber security, our secure cloud architecture, and the role of ISO 27001 in our mission to protect our customers’ data.
Investing in Cyber Security: our first line of defence
Cyber Security is the lifeblood of our business and should be the concern of every business in the digital age. Considering global escalating cyber threats, we have ramped up our investment in cutting-edge cyber security technologies, ensuring our customers’ data is always safeguarded.
Our approach is holistic, addressing the trifecta of confidentiality, integrity, and availability. We prioritise security-by-design, building robust security measures right into the architecture of our products, rather than considering it an afterthought. We employ end-to-end encryption, secure identity management, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and advanced AI-based threat detection tools.
Secure cloud architecture: A fortress in the cloud
We understand that our customers trust us with their most sensitive data, and it's a responsibility we don’t take lightly. That's why we've adopted a secure cloud architecture that effectively safeguards your information.
Our cloud architecture is designed with an unyielding focus on security and privacy. We leverage cloud service providers who share our commitment to data security and compliance with stringent standards. We've implemented multiple layers of security controls, including secure access controls, data encryption, and real-time vulnerability monitoring.
Aligning with AWS Well-Architected Framework
At Reapit, we closely align with the AWS Well-Architected Framework, which is a set of strategic principles designed to help cloud architects build the most secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient infrastructure possible for their applications. This framework provides a consistent approach to evaluating systems against the qualities you expect from modern cloud-based workloads.
The AWS Well-Architected Framework focuses on six pillars - operational excellence, security, reliability, performance efficiency, sustainability, and cost optimisation. The security pillar speaks to our mission. By implementing this framework, we ensure that information protection measures are fully integrated into our systems, managing identity and access effectively, securing our data both in transit and at rest, and implementing a robust infrastructure to protect against threats.
Investing in endpoint security and a dedicated secure team
Recognising the importance of endpoint security in a world where remote working and mobile access are the norms, we have fortified our defences against potential entry points for threats. Our endpoint security solution provides comprehensive protection, incorporating elements like antivirus software, firewalls, and intrusion prevention systems to safeguard each endpoint connected to our network.
Further strengthening our cyber security posture, we now have a Security Operations Centre (SOC) working around the clock. This team consists of security analysts who continuously monitor, analyse, and respond to cyber security incidents using a combination of technology solutions and a strong set of processes. With their help, we can identify and mitigate threats before they cause harm, providing our customers with even greater peace of mind.
ISO 27001: setting the gold standard
ISO 27001, the internationally recognised standard for information security management, is at the heart of our cyber security strategy. Compliance with ISO 27001 means that we adhere to the highest standards in implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS).
Our ISO 27001 compliance underscores our commitment to a systematic and ongoing approach to managing information security risks that can affect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of corporate and personal information. It's not just about utilising the right technology; it's also about having the right processes, policies, and people in place to manage and mitigate risks effectively.
This certification is about more than just ticking boxes; it's about maintaining a comprehensive, proactive, and rigorous approach to data protection. We are proud to say that Reapit is ISO 27001 certified, and we are committed to regular audits to maintain this standard.
The era we are living in is one where data breaches make headlines, and the threat landscape is continually evolving. Yet, it is also an era where businesses like ours are stepping up, investing in comprehensive cyber security strategies, and ensuring robust data protection measures are firmly in place.
At Reapit, we are unyielding in our commitment to protect our customers’ data. Our investment in cyber security, our alignment with the AWS Well-Architected Framework, the deployment of endpoint security, our secure cloud architecture, the establishment of a dedicated SOC team, and our compliance with ISO 27001 are all testament to this commitment. It's a responsibility we take with utmost seriousness, and we will continue to make every effort to exceed industry standards and provide our customers with the peace of mind they deserve.
It's not just about security; it's about trust. And at Reapit, you can trust us to protect what matters most – your data.
