As a global leader in both technology and consumer experiences for live events, processing billions of dollars each year in ticket sales, you trust us with their live events and the patrons who attend those events. That trust is predicated upon us keeping the data of you and your patrons private and secure. Our services are compliant with PCI-DSS and our latest Attestation of Compliance can be viewed here. We also leverage best practices from other standards such as NIST, ISO, and SOC. where it makes sense to do so, but we don’t formally comply or attest to those standards. This information is intended to provide an overview of how we protect that data and will be updated as we continually review and enhance our processes.
Security & Compliance
Our dedicated Security and Compliance team’s mandate is to protect the data you store in our services. Our Security and Compliance program includes:
- Product security.
- Protecting and securely transmitting cardholder data.
- Vulnerability management.
- Infrastructure controls (physical and logical).
- Policies and Operating Procedures
- Employee education and awareness.
- Intrusion prevention and detection.
- Data loss prevention.
We regularly assess our infrastructure and applications for vulnerabilities and remediate those that could impact the security of your data. Our Security and Compliance team continually evaluates new tools to increase the coverage and depth of these assessments.
We define and manage our network boundaries using a combination of network appliances including load balancers, firewalls and VPNs. We use these to control how services are exposed and to segment our production network from the rest of our computing infrastructure. We use role-based access control protocols that are based on business needs to define and authenticate access to our production infrastructure.
Application security is by means of an individual username and password. We provide you with the ability to manage application security to best meet your own needs and standards. It’s the responsibility of each client to ensure application-level roles are defined, implemented and managed such to comply with any protocols or standards to which they may subscribe. Securing our Internet-facing web service is critically important to protecting your data. Our Security and Compliance team drives an application security program to improve code security hygiene and regularly assess our service against OWASP for common application security issues.
Our services are designed and developed using single and multi-tenant architectures. In both cases, we take great care to ensure your data is accessible only to you. We consider your data private and don’t permit any other user to access it.
Data Retention & Deletion
We retain client data for the purposes of performing the services and after termination or expiration of the agreement we make available, return or delete the data as agreed with the client and in accordance with applicable law.
We consolidate logs from all production servers into a security information and event management tool. Logs are consistently monitored and reviewed by our Security and Compliance Team.
We use industry-standard encryption to protect your data in transit. This is commonly referred to as transport layer security (TLS) V1.2 or above, or secure socket layer (SSL) technology.
Encryption at Rest
Where necessary we encrypt cardholder and other sensitive data while at rest in the database tables. For the security of our systems and your data, we don’t publish the encryption standards used in this process.
We leverage DataCenter and Cloud-based technologies to provision our service. Our Cloud storage vendor is a global industry leader and is the primary storage location for clients with the data residing in the United States. Our DataCenter is Tier 3 equivalent and located in Canada. This DataCenter is used as temporary backup facilities for clients for failover over or other temporary support. Our infrastructure is located in a private, locked cage in an environmentally controlled facility that includes 24x7x365 monitoring and backup power. In both cases, access to our equipment is tightly controlled and only authorized personnel are permitted access.
Our goal is to ensure our services are available to you at all times. As every system requires maintenance, we have regularly planned maintenance windows during which times we complete all essential maintenance work. We may also perform emergency maintenance from time to time. We have a global footprint and in most cases can be flexible and schedule planned maintenance windows at a time most convenient for you. We provide notice well in advance of any maintenance that may require a service outage. We also work with you to schedule those outages at times that are convenient. However, this isn’t always possible. You also have varying needs when it comes to disaster recovery or service failover. We can offer a range of options to best meet the needs of the individual client.
Incident Response Plan
Our incident response plan lays out the steps we follow when suspicious activity is detected.
- Containment: We take immediate action to contain any suspicious activity. This may involve isolating components or taking services offline.
- Confirmation: We move to confirm that any suspicious activity is a cause for concern and warrant further action.
- Engagement: Within 48 hours of confirmation of an issue we communicate with affected clients. We also engage relevant third parties such as crisis management, forensic specialists, cybersecurity professionals and where required law enforcement.
- Remediation: We work with all parties involved to remedy the immediate issue, re-secure the environment and return to normal operations
All changes to data are stored in audit tables. Users with appropriate permissions can search the audit logs and view what changes were made, by who and when for robust troubleshooting.
Control user access to application features and functions with a flexible permissions management tool. Access can be configured on an individual user-level or by user group. Specific pages and individual fields can be exposed or hidden by user.
