Security & data protection overview

Security is a top priority for our customers and it’s a top priority for us

We are committed to implementing the best security practices across our service. We perform regular security testing and review our software using third party security specialists. We also monitor and maintain our security posture to help ensure your information is protected on a regular basis.

Security standards

Secure data transfer

We encrypt all data using SSL so information can be securely transferred from your employees to our hosted service and back again. It is not possible to login into our system without this level of encryption.

Secure data storage

By partnering Microsoft we offer a highly secure and robust data storage facility. Data is securely recorded and presented using best practice coding standards.

Security testing

We perform regular independent security tests, based on best practice, on our service in order to help identify technical and logical vulnerabilities. We’ve also performed security tests from within the application to make sure no privacy issues or data leakage can occur.

Coding standards

Our system is developed to the highest coding standards and software architecture. We use best practice with our development framework and lifecycle. Our code undergoes both functional and security review on a regular basis to ensure high standards of quality.

Complex user passwords

We enforce strong password standards using our password management system. This can prevent Talentevo users setting a weak password and reducing the risk of brute force and password guessing attacks.

We have a process to assign administration rights and roles to the system, which is designed to help manage your system securely.

We have focused on authorization controls across the service to help ensure data is only accessible to authorized individuals so users only see the information they are allowed to see.

Physical security

Microsoft manages the physical security for their datacenters and adhere to the highest level of controls. Power systems, backup generators and replication of key data ensure continuity of service and operation.

Data location

By utilising Microsoft’s ‘geo location’ service, our clients can decide where they want their data to reside within the three main geographically jurisdictions being Europe, United States and Asia.

Managing employee information

Talentevo provides the software for customers to manage their own data. Even though you upload your data onto our service you retain the ownership of that data and are responsible for its accuracy.

Talentevo is registered as a Data Processor with the Data Commissioner in Europe. We understand our obligations regarding data protection and have put the appropriate controls in place to manage our customers data.

Under the Data Protection legislation, a data processor is a person who processes data on behalf of a data controller (excluding an employee). The processing of data is defined under the legislation in broad terms, namely “performing any operation or set of operations on the information or data” and the definition includes the following:

  1. obtaining, recording or keeping the information or data;
  2. collecting, organising, storing, altering or adapting the information or data;
  3. retrieving, consulting or using the information or data;
  4. disclosing the information or data by transmitting, disseminating or otherwise making it available; or
  5. aligning, combining, blocking, erasing or destroying the information or data.

Microsoft Azure

Talentevo is hosted on Microsoft’s platform as a service called Windows Azure. Windows Azure is a comprehensive set of storage, computing, and networking infrastructure services that reside on Microsoft’s network of datacenters. It is a scalable and redundant network and server infrastructure utilising the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Network perimeter is protected via Microsoft Azure technical controls such as firewalls allowing only required services. Microsoft data centres undergo ongoing audits with 24x7x365 monitoring and surveillance, onsite security staff and strict access controls.

Microsoft Azure backs up two separate instances of your data to maximize resilience and availability, one instance in the same data centre and the other in a separate location.

We take a number of measures to ensure that the data you store on Talentevo is safe and secure. While we’re very confident in our technology, we recognize that no system can guarantee data security with 100% certainty. For that reason, we will continue to innovate to make sure that our security measures are state of the art, and we will investigate any and all reported security issues concerning Talentevo’s services or software.
