Information security policies and processes
The Information Security Department must provide direction and technical expertise to ensure that CyberArk’s information is properly protected. This includes consideration of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and the systems that handle it. The Department act as liaison on InfoSec matters between all departments, and must be the focal point for all InfoSec activities throughout CyberArk. The Department performs risk-assessments, prepares action-plans, evaluates vendor-products, participates on in-houseIT system development projects, assists control Implementations, investigates information security breaches, trains staff members. The InfoSec Department has the authority to create and periodically modify both technical standards and standard operating procedures that supports the InfoSec policy. When approved by appropriate CyberArk management, new requirements have the same scope and authority as if they were included in existing policy documents.

An information security steering committee, consisting of the CEO, GM, CIO and CISO must meet bi-weekly to review the current status of information security at CyberArk, approve and later review information security projects, and perform other necessary high-level information security management activities. Other employees may join the committee according to necessity and relevance. An information security Audit committee is being updated with information security work plan and risks management on a bi-quarterly basis.

Vulnerability management approach
As opposed to other cloud service providers who only provide a service but use 3rd-party technologies, CyberArk developed all the technologies it uses from scratch and only uses standard servers and routers (no 3rd-party technologies). This allows much more flexibility and rapid reaction to new threats and attack vectors as we do not have to wait for updates and patches – we do them ourselves immediately. In order to fight today's sophisticated and constantly changing attack patterns we have CyberArk’s 24x7 SOC - manned with security experts that can handle any attack in real time.
Protective monitoring type

Protective monitoring approach
Available on request.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
We have defined process of incident response and an incident response team whose responsibilities include: Analysis of the security issue risk (based on Severity Matrix and CVSS), remediation and recommendation. SLA of handling the issue according to the risk level. In case the decision is to fix, the fix is like any standard feature\bug development, including validation (QA) and automation. Security bulletin - in case a security issue found risky, and requires patch, we have a mechanism of publishing "security bulleting" to our customers. This bulletin contains explanation of the issue, and mitigation steps (including patch if needed).
