Your customer data, business data, and IP are critical assets for you and your organization. In protecting these assets for you, FICO has taken a multi-faceted approach to data security that covers:
- User specific access controls
- Access and use transparency
- Data center security
- Security for data in transit and at rest
- Building secure software
We are committed to incorporating the appropriate application security controls and ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all internal and external applications we developed and/or maintain. The security controls we use are based on FICO Information Security Department defined security requirements for application design, coding and testing practices to avoid vulnerabilities and protect against common threats.
FICO follows and enforces industry best practices for security and also follows best practices in software development. Please see the Secure Software Development Lifecycle section for more details. FICO conducts regular audits to check on compliance with these internal standards. The FICO Information Security Department is tasked with monitoring and compliance.
Through alignment of standards from the Cloud Security Alliance, review of other industry guidelines, and regular independent review by third parties; FICO continues to evolve these internal standards and best practices.
User Specific Access Controls
FICO lets you control access to your data in your own isolated environment on the FICO Analytic Cloud for your registered users.
Registered users login to the FICO Analytic Cloud through a Single Sign-On (SSO) feature that is supported by a secure identity and access management service. Please see FICO Analytic Cloud Access Control for more details.
You will be able to allow or block user users’ access to your applications and from within a specific application you will be able to control access depending on what the user is doing and the access model for the application. Please see the FICO Analytic Cloud website for more specifics regarding the solutions that interest you, or Contact Us.
Access and Use Transparency
Your data is Your Data and your ability to see how the FICO Analytic Cloud is being used on your data within your isolated environment on the FICO Analytic Cloud is your right. When requested, FICO will provide you a detailed audit report for every action or activity that occurs on your isolated environment.
FICO logs and safeguards audit data for at least one year and will make these reports available upon client request. The requested and protected audit reports contain data for events that include user identification, event type, date and time, success or failure indication, event origination, and identity or name of affected data, system component or resource.
In addition, FICO will manage and protect user log files and protect these files from any unauthorized modifications. FICO will:
- Back up audit trail files to a centralized log server or media that is difficult to alter.
- Use file integrity monitoring or change detection software on logs to ensure that existing log data cannot be changed without generating alerts.
- Retain audit trail history for a minimum of one year.
Data Center Security
FICO has built data center environments specifically to host the FICO Analytic Cloud and the unique security and privacy requirements of analytic customers. The globally dispersed data center infrastructure utilizes industry best practices to minimize downtime, deliver security and protect against malware. The best practices of the FICO data center environments include:
- Up-to-date physical and electronic safeguards
- Physical and electronic access managed based on the principles of need-to-know and least privilege, meaning all access must be granted in a manner that allows only the necessary rights to perform the function of the defined role.
- Ongoing monitoring of internal resources with warning and critical thresholds configured to alert our 24/7 Support Team of any potential degradation or interruption of service.
- A dedicated client-facing support organization focused on providing the highest levels of customer support.
- Industry standard disaster recovery capabilities.
- Geographically diverse data centers.
- Global support organization designed to ensure systems run effectively on a 24/7 basis.
Currently, the FICO Analytic Cloud has been designed to deliver 99.99% uptime availability. Service level standards (SLAs), including uptime/availability standards for individual solutions available through the FICO Analytic Cloud vary. Please see the FICO Analytic Cloud website for more specifics regarding the solutions that interest you, or Contact Us.
Security for Data in Transit and at Rest
Foundational to securing your data in transit and at rest is a FICO Analytic Cloud network that has been designed based on the concept of “Defense in Depth”. We use multiple, independent computer networking techniques which are mutually supporting in order to provide redundancy.
Best practices incorporated into the FICO Analytic Cloud network include:
- Demilitarized Zones for Internet facing services
- Network Monitoring/Intrusion Detection
- DoS Network Protections
- Multiple layers of external firewalls
- PCI-DSS specific requirements
FICO uses the latest technology and industry best practices for encrypting data in transit and at rest. For data in transit we use current encryption protocols and hashing algorithms, encrypting data across networks with CA issued certificates. FICO uses a range of industry standard techniques to protect sensitive data at rest including encryption, redaction, and obfuscation.
Product and solutions on the FICO Analytic Cloud use an encryption approach that is tailored to the specific solution. If you would like more information about data at rest encryption for any specific solution, please refer to the solution details on the website, or Contact Us.
Building Secure Software
At FICO, software security is not something that happens at the last moment, it is a method and way of building products that starts from ground-up before even one line of code is written by a FICO development team. A keystone at FICO in building secure products is the Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDL) Program. Please see the Secure Software Development Lifecycle section for more details.
The Secure Software Development Lifecycle
The Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDL) program guides development teams at FICO on development practices that assure that FICO developed products are secure; developed with appropriate application security controls to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
SSDL training and development standards are based on a hybrid risk model guided by industry best practices based on OWASP and other industry guidelines and includes requirements for application design, coding and testing practices to avoid vulnerabilities and protect against common threats.
The SSDL includes:
- Computer Based Training (CBT’s)
- Security (peer) Code Review
- Static Code Analysis (SCA)
- Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)
- Vulnerability Assessments
The Secure Software Development Lifecycle program is defined and supported by the FICO Information Security Department and under the guidance of the FICO Secure Software Steering Committee.
FICO Analytic Cloud Access Control
The FICO Analytic Cloud is supported by a set of core identity and access management services that regulate how people login to the FICO Analytic Cloud and associated products through an easy Single Sign-On (SSO) capability. Access management includes the processes and technologies used to create, validate, protect, and disable user account passwords. The same login, auditing, roles, and permissions are used across the entire FICO® Analytic Cloud for all products and solutions. The following techniques are used to protect access:
- Password lockout, timeout, and expiration
- Strict password strength requirements
- Strong user authentication security
The Cloud Security Alliance
The Cloud Security Alliance a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance for cloud computing, and to provide education on the uses of cloud computing to help secure all other forms of computing (www.cloudsecurityalliance.org). The Cloud Security Alliance is led by a broad coalition of industry practitioners, corporations, associations and other key stakeholders.
Verified by Independent Third-Parties
