Security Concerns

Different countries have issued corresponding laws and regulations for data security.

Take the self-driving industry as an example:

The smart car produces a large amount of data. Compared with traditional cars, the data security risks it will face involves personal privacy. The car will get some information about the driver or passengers inside the car, while the sensors outside the car may involve some information about the pedestrians outside the car. How to deal with, protect, use and store this information will involve personal privacy issues.

Another security concern is a data leak. Once data is transmitted, it is possible to get copied. Customers are worried that the data will be directly copied and sold to competitors.

In conclusion, except for legal norms, data security is essentially a matter of trust.

Things You Should Know About Data Security While Selecting an Outsourcing Partner

Firstly, you should know that according to principles and rules, what should be protected. For example, personal information, intellectual property, etc.

Then you should learn about the way how the outsourcing company protects.

You should ask the question such as:

  • How to prevent data leaks?
  • How to limit labeling viewing rights?
  • Whether there are measures deployed via cloud or on-premise

ByteBridge, a Human-powered and ML-assisted Data Labeling Tooling Platform with Fully Managed Data Security Solution

We comply with principles and rules in each region:

1. The CEO of the company supervises data management as a DPO (Data Protection Officer)

2. According to the guideline, if there is data leakage, we will inform the customer within 72 hours

In Our Labeling Loop:

• Non-disclosure smart contract

• GDPR personal privacy and data protection regulations compliance

• Workers location, process, and authority restriction

• No original data leak as the data is compressed and preprocessed

• No data leak in the complete form during the process as the splitting mechanism ensures the data dispersion

• Support private cloud and privatization deployment

Besides, ByteBridge has acquired the Quality Management System (ISO 9001) and Information Security Management System (ISO 27001) certifications from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 provides an international methodology for the implementation, management, and maintenance of information security within a company. Becoming ISO 27001 certified demonstrates conformity of an organization’s Information Security Management System (ISMS) with the documented standards, and provides customers with assurance regarding the security of the organization’s system. ISO 27001 certification demands a thorough evaluation of an organization that determines its qualification of 114 requirements divided into 14 categories of information security.

ISO 9001

ISO 9001 sets out the steps necessary to adopt a quality management system. It is designed to help organizations ensure they meet the needs and expectations of both customers and other interested parties, based on internationally recognized quality management principles set out by the (ISO). The certification is renewed every 3 years, during which the certified institution is subject to annual evaluations of their security and management systems.

By acquiring international standard certifications, the foundation has once again proven that it is maintaining a high standard in terms of developing, operating, and managing various services. ByteBridge has also expanded its opportunity to collaborate with numerous clients, corporations, and partners.
