Platform Security

The SceneDoc platform is built around several key tenets, chief among these is security. Just as physical evidence is kept safely behind lock and key, so too must the digital evidence that is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s mobile world.

From the moment a scene is first created in the field until the moment it is closed, all data is stored and transported using the most stringent security protocols available today. Data such as images and annotations are encrypted at rest on the cloud using the FIPS 140-2 certified Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), and during

All data is further guarded against unauthorized access by employing a policy of “least privilege”. Data is only accessible by the individual who created it, as well as their direct superior within the organization. Privilege levels within the Secure Cloud Portal can be configured to meet each organization’s specific needs and hierarchy.

SceneDoc complies with the very latest US federal data processing and information technology security standards.  This means the data stored within SceneDoc is protected using methods endorsed by the Chief Information Officer of the United States Federal Government. The SceneDoc platform complies with CJIS, FISMA and FIPS 140-2 where applicable.

  • Advanced Authentication

    SceneDoc was designed to make use of Multi Factor Authentication, a technology being leveraged today by the world’s largest banks and financial institutions, as well as other organizations that deal with highly sensitive data. Authentication methods can be configured on an organization-wide or individual basis.

  • Chain of Custody

    All actions taken within the SceneDoc platform are audited and tracked. This is to ensure maximum accountability and data integrity. Audit trails of any alterations or access attempts made on case data can be viewed and exported by supervisors as well as usage reports and tracking data for all their personnel.

  • Data Integrity

    All data – such as Images and Annotations – stored within the SceneDoc platform has a guaranteed durability of 99.999999999%. This equates to the possibility of losing one file per 10 million years (if there were 10,000 files stored).

  • Pro-active Development

    Updates are pushed to the cloud and client-side applications regularly, ensuring that the platform always stays ahead of the latest security exploits and vulnerabilities. Rigorous tests are performed on each and every update to eliminate the possibility of regression bugs.
