We refer to those products, services, websites and apps collectively as the “services” in this Statement.
Heroes News Network’s information systems and technical infrastructure are hosted at our corporate facility. Physical security controls include 24×7 monitoring, cameras, entry requirements, and dedicated secure areas for Heroes News Network hardware.
Access to Heroes News Network’s technology resources is only permitted through secure connectivity. Our production password policy requires complexity, expiration, and lockout and disallows reuse. Heroes News Network grants access on a need to know on the basis of least privilege rules, reviews permissions regularly, and revokes access immediately after employee termination.
Heroes News Network maintains and regularly reviews and updates its information security policies. Employees must acknowledge policies and undergo additional training such as HIPAA training, Secure Coding, PCI, and job specific security and skills development and/or privacy law training for key job functions. The training schedule is designed to adhere to all specifications and regulations applicable to Heroes News Network.
Heroes News Network communicates its information security policies to all personnel (who must acknowledge this) and requires new employees to sign non-disclosure agreements, and provides ongoing privacy and security training.
We encrypt your data in transit using secure TLS cryptographic protocols.
Our development team employs secure coding techniques and best practices. Development, testing, and production environments are separated. All changes are reviewed for performance, audit, and forensic purposes prior to deployment into the production environment.
Heroes News Network maintains an asset management policy which includes identification, classification, retention, and disposal of information and assets. Company-issued devices are equipped with encryption and up-to-date antivirus software. Only company-issued devices are permitted to access corporate and production networks.
Despite best efforts, no method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is perfectly secure. We cannot guarantee absolute security. However, if Heroes News Network learns of a security breach, we will notify affected users so that they can take appropriate protective steps. Our breach notification procedures are consistent with our obligations under applicable country level, state and federal laws and regulations, as well as any industry rules or standards applicable to us.
