ATTACHMENT 2: Technical and Organizational Measures including Technical and Organizational Measures to endure the Security of the Data

This Appendix describes the technical and organizational security measures and related policies and procedures that YourSix and any other data importer shall, as a minimum, implement and maintain to protect the security of Processing of Personal Data under the Agreement, taking into account the nature of the Processing and the risks associated thereof.

As set forth in its written information security policy, YourSix has implemented reasonable technical, physical, and organizational measures concerning data security as related to the processing of Personal Data. All devices entering the cloud environment are required to be pre-authorized via a serial number and owner authentication key. After being connected to the cloud platform for the first time, each device is forced through the public key infrastructure (PKI) system that YourSix has deployed for managing and enforcing SSL handshakes between each device and the cloud. After the initial auto-deployment of device certificates is complete, modern versions of TLS are leveraged for device, user and cloud communications to encrypt data in transit. Additionally, YourSix leverages disk-level encryption to ensure that Personal Data is encrypted at rest. Further device security measures are also implemented with a goal of preventing the misuse of default passwords. All devices entering the YourSix cloud environment receive a randomized key for authenticating against the root user that is native to each device.

YourSix greatly limits the access to administrative settings and pages of the cloud platform as well as underlying architecture to only those individuals whom must have access to provide our customers with support. YourSix has implemented intrusion detection and prevention systems, web application firewalls and DDoS mitigation. YourSix maintains logs associated with user logins and other events for historical, threat avoidance, and other security purposes.
