Staunch Technology takes the security and privacy of your information seriously.
Where will my data be stored?
Your data will be stored in state-of-the-art data centres operated by Microsoft Azure in Sydney and Melbourne Australia. If it is required to be stored in another jurisdiction, please contact us and we can talk about options.
What about backups?
Full backups of every client system are run daily and maintained for 30 days with the ability to retrieve information for up to 7 years. Databases have transaction logs backed up hourly as well as a full daily backup.
What kind of application level security is used?
The JobFit System On Demand (JOD) and PEFA On Demand (POD) systems both use Role Based Access Control. Each user is assigned a role within the application and within their company that prevents unauthorised access to information. An audit log is kept of all major interactions within JOD to further ensure the traceability of any information access within the application.
What type of controls protect your data?
Microsoft provides physical security and logical security controls at the infrastructure layer. The platform is covered by many certifications including a SSAE 16 report (done by Ernst and Young) and is PCI Level 1 certified, ISO 27001 certified, and compliant with all major security control frameworks.
Additionally, Staunch Technology follows the Australian Signals Directorate blueprint for Azure deployment of applications outlined here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/security/blueprints/au-protected-iaaswa-overview.
What kind of encryption is used?
Data that is transferred to and from Staunch Technology is 100% encrypted using the latest encryption standard.
