Cloud Protection for Data Security

PTS Advisory is a Practice Protect Certified Firm. The Practice Protect platform provides cloud access technology systems that can:

– Restrict remote access to specific locations and/or block unauthorized access to our systems;

– Track and monitor attempted access to our systems and identify suspicious access:

– Log usage in an audit trail and retrospectively determine the suspected source of a breach to report to authorities. With this tool, we can see what applications were accessed when they were accessed and from where:

– Terminate user access to all sensitive cloud applications by disabling a single user account;

– Remotely wipe mobile devices in the event they are breached, lost or the user associated with the device is terminated. We are able to restrict access to reasonable times such as business hours;

– Share access to applications using a single user ID without having to divulge cloud app passwords to staff;

– Require only one single user password to all sensitive applications for staff to remember, decreasing the risk associated with ‘password sprawl’;

– Apply two-step authentication (2SA) to access all sensitive application (not on an application by application basis);

– Centralize our identity systems so that access to desktops, servers, and browser-based cloud applications are accessed via one single identity;

Goals give you direction. It allows you to stay mentally and physically focused on the road to where you want to go.

We have also documented and implemented policies through Practice Protect that :

– Educate and sets expectations on staff in relation to best practice for password and access management;

– Govern interaction with third parties such as IT contractor or outsourcing providers and what occurs should there be a breach of our data security policies;

– Makes clear how we manage client information;

– Lays out the steps for responding and communicating in the event of a data breach.

Our policies and procedures reiterate our firm's commitment to be responsible data custodians.
