State of Security

In the rapidly evolving landscape of cybersecurity, maintaining robust security protocols is essential to protect our systems and our customers’ data. At Screenly, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve, continuously improving our security measures, and ensuring our processes meet the highest standards. This year, we are excited to share significant advancements in our security efforts, including our journey toward SOC2 Type II compliance and our proactive approach to Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs).

SOC2 Type II Compliance: Enhancing Trust and Assurance

One of our primary goals for this year is to achieve SOC2 Type II compliance. This certification is a rigorous standard for managing customer data based on five “trust service principles”—security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. By becoming SOC2 Type II compliant, we aim to provide our customers with the highest level of assurance that their data is handled with the utmost care and security.

To streamline our compliance process and ensure that all our systems meet the required standards, we have partnered with Vanta. Vanta’s platform is designed to simplify and automate the path to compliance, making it easier for us to monitor and maintain the necessary security controls. We are pleased to report that our progress is on track, and we expect to achieve full compliance later this year. This milestone will not only strengthen our security posture but also reinforce the trust our customers place in us.

Embracing SBOMs: Transparency and Security

As part of our commitment to transparency and security, we are also focusing on Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs). An SBOM is a comprehensive inventory of all components, libraries, and dependencies in a software product. It is an essential tool for managing supply chain security, enabling organizations to identify and address vulnerabilities more effectively.

The importance of SBOMs has been underscored by recent regulatory developments, including the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity (Executive Order 14028). This directive highlights the need for greater transparency and accountability in software development, and we anticipate an increasing number of requests from our larger customers for detailed SBOMs.

To meet this demand and streamline our process of sharing SBOMs with relevant stakeholders, we have partnered with sbomify. sbomify’s platform allows us to efficiently generate and distribute SBOMs, ensuring that our customers have the information they need to assess and manage their security risks. By proactively addressing these requirements, we are positioning ourselves to better serve our customers and comply with emerging cybersecurity standards.

Looking Ahead

At Screenly, our commitment to security is unwavering. We will continue to invest in our security infrastructure, adopt best practices, and collaborate with industry leaders to safeguard our systems and customer data. Achieving SOC2 Type II compliance and embracing SBOMs are just two examples of how we are enhancing our security efforts. We’ve also shipped features, like our personal support PIN, that enhances the security of our platform at large.

We are proud of the progress we have made and are confident that these initiatives will further solidify our reputation as a trusted partner in the digital signage industry. We look forward to sharing more updates with you as we continue our journey toward a more secure and transparent future.

Thank you for your continued trust and support.

Stay Secure,
The Screenly Team
