Appendix 1 Technical and Organizational Measures
System administrators are hereinafter referred to as "DevOps". The following Technical and Organizational Measures have been implemented:
1. Entrance control: All systems are located in ISO 27001 certified data centers in Germany. Only DevOps are granted access to the physical systems.
2. Authentication access control: User access is secured with strong password protection according to the internal Password Policy or public key access control as well as second factor authentication (e.g. YubiKey). User access is managed by DevOps.
3. Authorization access control: Data records are secured with role based permissions. Permissions are managed by DevOps.
4. Data medium control: All hard discs containing personal data are encrypted. File permissions are allocated to DevOps users/roles as well as application users/roles to make sure no unauthorized access to files is allowed from logged in users and processes.
5. Transfer control: Transfer of personal data to other parties is being logged. Logs include the user/process that initiated the input, the type of personal data and the timestamp. The logs are kept for 6 months.
6. Input control: Input of new and updated as well as deletion of personal data is logged. Logs include the user/process that initiated the input, the type of personal data and the timestamp. The logs are kept for 6 months.
7. Transport control: Transport of personal data from and to the system are secured with strong SSL and/or end-to-end encryption.
8. Confidentiality: Personal data is stored end-to-end encrypted wherever possible.
9. Restoration control: All systems have a second network interface with access for DevOps only. This interface allows access even if the main interface is blocked. Components of the system can be restarted in case of error conditions. A DDOS mitigation service is automatically activated if a DDOS attack occurs that makes the system inaccessible.
10. Reliability: DevOps monitor all systems and are notified if any component of the system fails to be able to bring it up again immediately.
11. Data integrity: Automatic error correction on data mediums and also on database level make sure that data integrity is guaranteed. Additionally the integrity of end-to-end encrypted personal data is guaranteed through MACs during encryption and decryption.
12. Instruction control: NI employees are aware of the purposes of processing and regularly complete an internal security awareness program. (Sub)processors are instructed by written contracts.
13. Availability control: NI systems are located in ISO 27001 certified data centers in Germany which guarantee the physical availability and connection of the systems. NI long-term data is stored as three replicas on different servers or in a RAID system. Backups are created prior to updating critical parts of the system.
14. Separability: Separate processing for personal data is set up as required.
15. Resilience: All systems use highly scalable components that are designed for much higher load than actually needed. All systems are expandable very quickly to continuously allow processing higher loads.
