g) The Processor can demonstrate and provide sufficient guarantees as to the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures taken to ensure data security and protection: –
a. Technical Measures
i. Security Classification: Bounce Insights platform data is segregated into various collections on our backend services. The reason for this is to allow certain access control restrictions to be implemented on these collections and subdocuments in order to restrict access to only those with the adequate privileges.
ii. Access to information: Customers on the Bounce Insights dashboard have fine grained access controls applied to them to restrict the survey results and user information available to them. Customers will only be shown the aggregate results to surveys that they have published for research conducted through the Bounce Insights platform. Customers also can add team members to their account who then have the same level of access as the parent customer. This access can be revoked at any time of the parent customers choosing.
iii. Data encryption: All data transmitted / used across the Bounce Insights platform is encrypted both at rest and whilst in transit.
iv. Data storage: No data is stored on the Bounce Insights platform and any data sent to backend services is encrypted in transit using HTTPS & SSL.
v. Penetration testing: Penetration testing is performed on the Bounce Insights platform annually by an external provider. This is performed with the aim of highlighting and exposing flaws / exploits in the system that could be exploited by a malicious actor. Dependency bots are used to discover vulnerabilities in all dependencies used by the Bounce Insights platform and update these to versions in which the dependency has been patched / fixed.
vi. Data backups: Backups of Bounce Insights platform data are performed on a frequent basis and retained for a period of 30 days. This ensures that in the event of a catastrophic incident minimal platform data is lost as these backups can be restored. These backups are encrypted at rest and can only be accessed by senior members of Bounce Insights.
b. Organisational Measures
i. Access to information: Staff at Bounce Insights will only be granted access to the information that they need to fulfil their role within the organisation. Staff who have been granted access must not pass on information to others unless they have also been granted access through appropriate authorisation.
ii. Training: Staff at Bounce Insights must conduct annual mandatory data protection training.
iii. Policies: Staff at Bounce Insights must adhere to robust data security policies including the Data Protection Policy, Information Security Policy, Clear Desk Policy, Data Protection Impact Assessment Policy, and Data Breach Notification Policy and Procedures.
