4. Data Storage and security
4.1. Backup and Restore
At Cinema Intelligence, we are committed to delivering a highly available and quality service. Our infrastructure team is following a set of DevOps principles that have proven successful for the past years in achieving these goals.
We have implemented a full backup Infrastructure as core philosophy, by decoupling the service required configuration from the virtual infrastructure.
Daily backups of our data sources start at around 12:00 AM CET, thus ensuring the availability of the data from the day before. Although it takes longer to finish and requires more storage, we only use full backups. This is to ensure a minimal time to restore data.
All backups are stored in two separate datacenter locations for redundancy (primary in the Nederland and secondary in Ireland). Each of these locations contain three copies of data, ensuring an availability of 99.95% / site for the backup files.
For more information on this, you can check the SLA for Microsoft’s Azure Storage Account (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/legal/sla/storage/v1_2/)
Backups of the data sources are traced via our primary monitoring interface.
We use Azure Security Center to monitor access to the backup storage accounts. The IT department has access to both locations, while the Development team has read access only to the primary location.
We also have a disaster recovery policy designed with the same infrastructure as core philosophy. We redeploy on weekly basis the latest version of Cinema Intelligence using the customer’s latest data backup. This ensures the quality of the application before it reaches production and that the deployment process is successful. Also, with this procedure, we simulate what would happen in case of a disaster and how fast we can recover.
There are multiple steps in the disaster recovery procedure, depending on the location of the issue:
1.Restore Azure infrastructure. If the Azure datacenter is affected, we can redeploy all the virtual resources within 30 minutes into another Azure datacenter.
2.Restore client database from primary backup location within 20 minutes.
3.Restore Cinema Intelligence version. Redeploy a specific version of CI within 5 minutes.
4.Restore networking. If there is an outage that requires redeploying a different, there are two scenarios covered:
a. Connection without VPN. We would require the client to unblock two IP addresses in different datacenters (primary in the Nederland and secondary in Ireland). Thus, if the primary datacenter fails, we can restore the Azure infrastructure (server, storage) and attaching the secondary IP address. This ensures connectivity with ticketing system is not affected
b. Connection with VPN. If high availability is desired in this scenario, we require creating a secondary VPN connection in a different datacenter. In case of a disaster, we would then restore the Azure infrastructure in the same network where the secondary VPN connection is.
4.2. Application Security
Cinema Intelligence application is web-based solution accessible using an internet browser.
Access to this URL can be restricted to a VPN, corporate network or other restrictions based on firewall configuration.
We deploy industry-standard security technologies to ensure only authorized users can access the application.
These procedures include:
1.Usage of encrypted communication using RSA 4096bit encryption secure certificate.
2. Microsoft Azure Firewall to restrict access to the application
-Security Token based authentication using OAuth 2.0 protocol
3. Password encryption using Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) technology.
Measures are taken to prevent unauthorized access to IT systems.
These include the following technical and organizational measures for user identification and authentication:
- Password procedures (incl. special characters, minimum length, forced change of password)
- No access for guest users or anonymous accounts
- Central management of system access
Access to IT systems subject to approval from HR management and IT system administrators. It is strictly restricted to our employees and governed by our internal procedure on access to customer cloud environment.
