Security and privacy at Lambda Function

Security is at the heart of what we do—helping our customers improve their security and compliance posture starts with our own.

Governance

Lambda Function’s Security and Privacy teams establish policies and controls, monitor compliance with those controls, and prove our security and compliance to third-party auditors.

Our policies are based on the following foundational principles:

01.

Access should be limited to only those with a legitimate business need and granted based on the principle of least privilege.

02.

Security controls should be implemented and layered according to the principle of defense-in-depth.

03.

Security controls should be applied consistently across all areas of the enterprise.

04.

The implementation of controls should be iterative, continuously maturing across the dimensions of improved effectiveness, increased audibility, and decreased friction.

Data protection

 

Data at rest

All datastores with customer data, in addition to S3 buckets, are encrypted at rest. Sensitive collections and tables also.

This means the data is encrypted even before it hits the database so that neither physical access, nor logical access to the database, is enough to read the most sensitive information.

Data in transit

Lambda Function uses TLS 1.2 or higher everywhere data is transmitted over potentially insecure networks. We also use features such as HTTPS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) to maximize the security of our data in transit. Server TLS keys and certificates are managed by AWS and deployed via Application Load Balancers.

Product security

 

Penetration testing

Lambda Function engages with one of the best penetration testing consulting firms in the industry at least annually.

All areas of the Lambda Function product and cloud infrastructure are in scope for these assessments, and source code is fully available to the testers in order to maximize the effectiveness and coverage.

We make summary penetration test reports available via our Trust Center.

Enterprise security

 

Endpoint protection

All corporate devices are centrally managed with Sophos Central  and anti-malware protection. Endpoint security alerts are monitored with 24/7/365 coverage. We use MDM software to enforce secure configuration of endpoints, such as disk encryption, screen lock configuration, and software updates.

Security education

Lambda Function provides comprehensive security training to all employees upon onboarding and annually through educational modules within Lambda Function’s own platform. In addition, all new employees attend a mandatory live onboarding session centered around key security principles. All new engineers also attend a mandatory live onboarding session focused on secure coding principles and practices.

Lambda Function’s IT team shares regular threat briefings with employees to inform them of important security and safety-related updates that require special attention or action.

Identity and access management

Lambda Function uses AWS IAM to secure our identity and access management. Lambda Function employees are granted access to applications based on their role, and automatically deprovisioned upon termination of their employment. Further access must be approved according to the policies set for each application.
