Keeping our customers' data protected at all times is our highest priority. This security overview provides a high-level overview of the security practices put in place to achieve that objective.
Have questions or feedback? Feel free to reach out to us at [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com)
Our security.txt can be accessed [here](todotemplates.com/security.txt).
## Dedicated Security Team
Our security team is comprised of security experts dedicated to improving the security of our organization. Our employees are trained on security incident response and are on call 24/7.
## Network level security monitoring and protection
Our network security architecture consists of multiple security zones. We monitor and protect our network, to make sure no unauthorized access is performed using:
- A virtual private cloud (VPC), a bastion host or VPN with network access control lists (ACL’s) and no public IP addresses.
- A firewall that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic.
- An Intrusion Detection and/or Prevention technologies (IDS/IPS) solution that monitors and blocks potential malicious packets.
- IP address filtering
## DDoS protection
We use Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation services powered by an industry-leading solution.
## Data encryption
Encryption in transit: All data sent to or from our infrastructure is encrypted in transit via industry best-practices using Transport Layer Security (TLS). You can see our SSLLabs report [here](https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=todotemplates.com)
Encryption at rest: All our user data (including passwords) is encrypted using battled-proofed encryption algorithms in the database.
## Data retention and removal
We retain your usage data for a period of 90 days after your trial. All data is then completely removed from the dashboard and server.
Every user can request the removal of usage data by contacting support.

## Business continuity and disaster recovery
We back up all our critical assets and regularly attempt to restore the backup to guarantee a fast recovery in case of disaster.
## Application security monitoring
- We use a security monitoring solution to get visibility into our application security, identify attacks and respond quickly to a data breach.
- We use technologies to monitor exceptions, logs and detect anomalies in our applications.
- We collect and store logs to provide an audit trail of our applications activity.
- We use monitoring such as open tracing in our microservices.
## Application security protection
- We use a runtime protection system that identifies and blocks OWASP Top 10 and business logic attacks in real-time.
- We use security headers to protect our users from attacks. You can check our grade on [this security scanner](https://www.sqreen.io/scan?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftodotemplates.com).
- We use security automation capabilities that automatically detect and respond to threats targeting our apps.
## Secure development
We develop following security best practices and frameworks (OWASP Top 10, SANS Top 25). We use the following best practices to ensure the highest level of security in our software:
- Developers participate in regular security training to learn about common vulnerabilities and threats
- We review our code for security vulnerabilities
- We regularly update our dependencies and make sure none of them has known vulnerabilities
- We use Static Application Security Testing (SAST) to detect basic security vulnerabilities in our codebase
- We use Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) to scan our applications
- We rely on [yearly | bi-annually | quarterly] third-party security experts to perform penetration tests of our applications.
