Numerous measures are in place to ensure that vulnerabilities related to employees are not exploited:
Certn employee background checks.
Every Certn employee (full-time and contractor) undergoes background checks in accordance with state and federal laws. We run criminal record checks, previous employment checks, education checks and more. Employees are not granted access to any systems until the background checks are returned and evaluated for potential risk factors.
Certn employee security training.
All employees undergo rigorous training in information security, privacy, and compliance. They are also required to sign non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements. Our security team provides continuous education to all employees (internal communications and training sessions) to ensure that employees remain up to date on proper security practices.
Endpoint security management.
All workstations issued to our employees run up-to-date OS versions, and are configured to comply with the baseline standards for endpoint security. This means that all workstations are configured, patched, and monitored by endpoint management solutions (anti-virus software, encrypting data at rest, strict password policy).
