Internal Protocol

Security is the responsibility of all InnerTrends employees, and we take measures to ensure that access to our systems and your data is restricted only to those who need access in order to provide you awesome support.

  • Our IT team is in charge with the operational aspects of our business, and ensure information security.
  • All backend machines that run our infrastructure are kept up to date and patched. All software installation is strictly controlled. Access to these machines is restricted to members of the IT & backend server team.
  • Our organization's Development, Test, and Production systems are separated.

We also have strict requirements for all employees, including but not limited to:

  • All staff machines must comply with our Confidentiality Policy which includes a requirement to "take all reasonable measures to protect the security and prevent the unauthorized access or disclosure of all confidential information".
  • The majority of our staff are fully remote and adhere to specific requirements such as: encryption of storage media, using two-factor authentication (2FA), requiring strong passwords, and specific recommendations such as configuring computers and phones to lock after a certain period. Additionally, all communication is done through securely encrypted channels using modern, strong encryption.
  • A thorough employee termination & access removal process is in place.

Application Security

  • All communication between users and the InnerTrends application is over secure, encrypted channels with 256-bit TLS encryption and any requests to retrieve or alter data must be authenticated.
  • InnerTrends enforces a password complexity standard and credentials are stored using a PBKDF function (bcrypt).
