Keep Your Data Safe and Your Insights Accessible Through Command Alkon’s Security by Design Approach

The race to digitization is on as most construction organizations today know they must embrace new technology and continually innovate in order to remain competitive, relevant, and in business in this new COVID environment in which we live. But in the rush to modernize their systems to keep their operations going, they introduce multiple vulnerabilities across their business, and expose themselves to a growing number of risks.

Meanwhile, there are always more would-be attackers ready to exploit these weak spots, with virtually unlimited access to a plethora of software and services just a click away. The rise of ‘hacktivism’ and cyber-terrorism is threatening cybersecurity worldwide. Anyone with a grudge, a point to make, or simply a desire to cause damage can readily do so. With Command Alkon's CONNEX Platform, you can rest assured that your data is yours alone and that it is safe.

We’ve adopted industry standard cyber security frameworks (NIST 800-171, CIS, CSA) and support global data privacy regulatory requirements (GDPR, CCPA, PIPEDA). Our CONNEX Platform has been designed to be secure from the ground up and built in such a way as to minimize flaws that could compromise security from the start. The Platform is a multitenant database where all data is housed in logical partitions and a symmetric encryption key is used to encrypt data as it is written to storage. Only those with the encryption key can access the data. Additionally, any time the data is transferred through an API or DExA, it is also encrypted as it is transferred.

We are constantly taking measures to ensure that tight security of your data is put in place, such as continuous testing, authentication safeguards, and adherence to best programming practices. Learn more from this document outlining CONNEX Security by Design.

For additional information in regards to personal data, please see our Privacy Policy.
