Patch Management – SOCRadar has set up a system for detecting security vulnerabilities, obtaining, evaluating, and consistently applying patches (software updates) or modifications in configurations to the relevant applications/systems throughout the company’s infrastructure. Additionally, we conduct regular vulnerability scans with the services of an approved QSA (Qualified Security Assessor).

Access Control – Access control systems for the network are in place to block unauthorized protocol traffic from accessing the SOCRadar service infrastructure. The specific technical solutions vary among infrastructure providers and encompass strategies such as Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) setups, assignments of security groups, and conventional firewall regulations. Moreover, all applications handling sensitive data employ Single Sign-On (SSO) and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) for user verification.

Password Policy – SOCRadar has established a consistent password policy across its internal services, tools, and features. All passwords must meet specified minimum criteria and are kept in an encrypted format. Users engaging with these services are mandated to utilize a password manager for the secure storage of their passwords.

Change Management – SOCRadar has developed a change management strategy to minimize the risk of unauthorized or harmful modifications to applications/systems. Every alteration undergoes peer review, testing, and documentation by the SOCRadar Change Manager for auditing purposes before it is implemented in the production environment.



Third-Parties – SOCRadar protects processed data by maintaining contractual relationships with third-party vendors. The organization depends on these contractual agreements, privacy policies, and vendor compliance practices to safeguard any data processed or stored by these suppliers.

Privacy Laws – In processing personal data, we employ suitable technical and organizational safeguards to comply with relevant privacy legislation. We have implemented various policies and procedures, both internally and externally, including the General Data Protection Policy, Privacy Policy, Subject Access Request Policy, procedures for employees to manage subject access requests, data breach protocols, and additional documents as mandated by applicable laws.

Supplier Security Verification – We conduct a security validation process for each of our suppliers and continuously oversee all third-party vendors through our cybersecurity assessment platform.

Personal Data Retention – Once a user’s personal data is no longer required for its original purposes, it is deleted. Nonetheless, we might keep copies of this data and information as allowed or mandated by law for archival reasons or if it is produced by automatic computer backups and stored as part of standard computerized archiving systems while implementing the requisite technical and organizational safeguards.
