Third-party attestation

At Simptel, we prioritize data security and privacy, upholding a security-first approach in all our operations. As a Dutch-based company, GDPR compliance is fundamental, and we continuously bolster our security measures. Our Information Security Management System (ISMS) actively monitors our infrastructure in real-time, ensuring consistent protection against security threats. We have obtained our ISO 27001:2022 certification and are currently pursuing our SOC2 Type 2 certification, committing to annual evaluations by independent third-party auditors. These measures are aimed at ensuring the ongoing security, availability, confidentiality, and integrity of our customers' data at Simptel Services.

All Simptel employees receive security awareness training during onboarding and annually. Development staff additionally receive OWASP-focused training. The effectiveness of our security training is evaluated through regular phishing simulation exercises.

Vulnerability management

At Simptel, we have implemented a Vulnerability Management Program that follows the best practices in the industry. This program ensures that we can quickly detect and resolve any potential security threats. We have a secure process in place for the confidential reporting of vulnerabilities. Although we do not currently have an external bug bounty program, we are considering it as a possible addition to our security strategy in the future.
