We know security is a concern to you, and our approach will help give you a greater peace of mind. A security policy is what it means to be secure for a system, organization or other entity. For an organization like ours, it addresses the constraints on behavior of its regular ethical visitors, as well as constraints imposed on adversaries like hackers and Internet thieves. For systems, our security policy addresses constraints on functions and flow among them, constraints on access by external systems and adversaries including programs and access to data by people.
Because Cushion Source®'s security policy is a high level definition of secure consistent behavior, it is meaningless to claim an entity is "secure" without knowing what "secure" means. The bottom line is simple - what is shared with our company, stays in our company through multiple secure levels.

Headers of all incoming data including electronic mail must be scanned for viruses by the email server where such products exist and are financially feasible to implement. Outgoing electronic mail should be scanned where such capabilities exist. Where feasible, system or network administrators should inform users when a virus has been detected. Virus scanning logs must be maintained whenever email is centrally scanned for viruses.
Intruder detection must be implemented on all servers and workstations containing data classified as high risk. Operating system and application software logging processes must be enabled on all host and server systems. Where possible, alarm and alert functions, as well as logging and monitoring systems must be enabled. Server, firewall, and critical system logs should be reviewed frequently. Where possible, automated review should be enabled and alerts should be transmitted to the administrator when a serious security intrusion is detected. Intrusion tools should be installed where appropriate and checked on a regular basis.
