Is CATAPA Safe?
CATAPA Ensures the Security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is information that can be used independently or in combination with other data to identify, contact, or track a person or individual associated with said information. CATAPA, in this context, ensures PII data security by implementing various practical security measures. Here are some security methods used by CATAPA to protect PII:
1. Encryption of App-Database Communication
CATAPA uses encryption when transmitting data between the application and the database. This encryption method protects sensitive information during transmission and ensures that the data cannot be accessed by unauthorized parties during the transmission process.
2. Encryption of Client-Server Communication (HTTP Over TLS)
TLS (Transport Layer Security) is a security protocol used to encrypt communication between web servers and clients to protect the confidentiality and integrity of data being transmitted. CATAPA implements HTTP over TLS (HTTPS) to encrypt communication between the client (user's browser) and the application server, ensuring the security of data transmitted to and from users.
3. Database Backup Encryption
It's essential to ensure the security of backup copies of databases that contain sensitive information such as PII. CATAPA uses encryption technology to protect database backups, maintaining the security and confidentiality of data when stored or backed up.
4. Implementation of Network Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)
A Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is a network configuration concept aimed at providing an additional security layer between the Internet and internal networks. CATAPA implements DMZ to isolate internal networks containing PII data, thereby protecting systems behind the firewall.
5. Centralized Logging
CATAPA centralizes all system activity logs in one place to facilitate monitoring and analysis. Centralized log storage allows administrators and security teams to detect and address suspicious security incidents or threats more efficiently.
6. Prevention of Data Loss
To protect PII data from situations such as loss, theft, or system failure, CATAPA implements data loss prevention policies and procedures. Some preventative measures may include continuous monitoring, user access management, multi-factor authentication, and backup and data recovery strategies.
7. WAF (Web Application Firewall)
A WAF is a security solution designed to protect web applications from various attacks that could damage or manipulate sensitive data. WAF filters, monitors, and controls incoming traffic to the system, minimizing the risk of data breaches.
