Information Security Policy
WisdmLabs mandates an information security policy that defines an employee’s responsibilities and acceptable use of information system resources. It covers a wide array of security-related topics ranging from general standards with which every employee must comply, such as account, data, and physical security, to more specialized security standards covering internal applications and information systems. This policy is periodically reviewed and updated as necessary.
We actively drive security initiatives, review the effectiveness of the security program, and perform security and privacy assessment and reviews.
WisdmLabs follows backup guidelines and associated procedures to backup and restore data in a scheduled, secure, and timely manner. We also have systems in place and regular checks to help safeguard backed up data (onsite and off-site).
Software Development Lifecycle
We follow a defined methodology for developing secure software that is designed to increase the resilience and trustworthiness of our solutions or products. Security and security testing are implemented and quality checks are involved in each phase of the lifecycle and security best practices are adhered to.
Our secure development lifecycle follows standard security practices including vulnerability testing, regression testing, penetration testing, and product security assessments. The WisdmLabs architecture team reviews our development methodology regularly to incorporate evolving security awareness, industry practices and to measure its effectiveness.
WisdmLabs employees are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the company’s guidelines.
All newly hired employees are required to sign confidentiality agreements and to acknowledge the code of conduct policy. The code outlines the company’s expectation that every employee will conduct business lawfully, ethically, with integrity, and with respect for each other and the company’s users, partners, and competitors. Employees are provided with security training as part of new hire orientation.
Terms of Employment
WisdmLabs operates an onboarding process which includes (but is not limited to) the following steps:
- Communication of policies, code of conduct and behavioral standards
- Employee signature on the employment agreement (which includes a confidentiality agreement) and WisdmLabs Information Security Policy (information on security responsibilities)
- Background checks (subject to local laws)
General information security training is provided to all new employees (both full time and temporary) as part of their onboarding.
Development and SaaS Operations staff receives further training specific to product development, deployment, and management of secure applications. Additional security training is also provided to employees who handle client data.
Termination of Employment
WisdmLabs maintains a formal termination or change of employment process that, promptly upon termination or change of employment, requires the return of any and all WisdmLabs and Client assets, disables or adjusts access rights, and reminds ex-employees of their remaining employment restrictions and contractual obligations.
All access (logical and physical) is terminated on or before the termination date. WisdmLabs uses pre-defined checklists to help ensure the consistency and completeness of the termination process.
