In today’s high-technology environment we understand an adaptable and agile security program is vital to the integrity of our business, and the privacy and security of confidential and proprietary data is one of our highest priorities. We are data-driven and relentlessly curious; constantly evaluating and evolving our security controls to keep up with the current threat landscape. Learn more about how we do it below.
We strongly value our relationships
and the trust of our customers and partners.
We believe security and privacy should be built into every layer of our infrastructure. Our security plan is multi-faceted, encompassing development, deployment, production, and beyond. All CIAL D&B products are architected for high availability, leveraging uptime monitoring and resilient, fault tolerant design. Policies for business continuity and disaster recovery are in place so that our products and services are available for our customers when they need them. Our application security team continuously performs testing on applications in all aspects of software development and leverages our partnership of industry leading security experts as a second layer. We monitor and scan our environment 24×7 to detect vulnerabilities and have a team dedicated to driving remediation and patching.
We safeguard confidential data by using high-grade encryption and the latest generation anti-malware software. Only authorized employees have access to information necessary for them to perform their job duties and when access is no longer needed, we remove it. Alongside these security controls, we have policies and procedures that are validated and enforced through a risk assessment and audit program.

Highly available systems, business continuity plans, and disaster recovery protocols ensure that in the event of an issue, data and systems can be recovered and made operational in short order.
CIAL D&B and the Dun & Bradstreet WWN place a high priority on data protection and privacy. Individuals can request to have their information removed from our platform, and we aim to meet those requests within the limits of our standards and local regulations.
Likewise, upon request we will delete as expediently as possible any proprietary data added to the platform by our customers.
In the case of an unexpected event, global incident response plans are in place so we can be prepared. Our business continuity strategies and plans have been developed to address events such as natural or manmade disasters and conflicts. We have a process for dealing with incidents and leverage our trusted threat intelligence community, including major global enterprises and law enforcement, to quickly gather the information we need to address the event and pick up right where we left off.
Maintaining the security and privacy of our customers’ confidential data is one of our highest priorities. Our customers depend on us to keep their confidential and proprietary information private, and we are committed to applying the appropriate security standards to safeguard that information.
