Protection of Personal Data

We make our best efforts to ensure that our services are provided in a way that protects information against accidental or intentional destruction or loss. The communication between your computer and our server during the processing of your Personal Data (in our system) is encrypted using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. To register the participants of our conferences and events and gather your Personal Data, we use operating systems designed for the Syskonf platform. Remote access is limited to the necessary minimum (system maintenance) and takes place via firewalls and VPNs. System environments are additionally secured against any software defects with a snapshots mechanism. The Syskonf hardware is based on modern Rack servers. Each of them has a number of doubled sub-assemblies, including redundant power packs connected to independent uninterruptible power lines and RAID disk matrixes protecting against failures of data storage devices. The local network infrastructure is also doubled to minimize the risk of a defect of a single element and keep the highest service availability possible. The Syskonf platform is maintained at one of the best data centers in Poland. The physical security is ensured by a security service team and a 24/7/365 external and internal CCTV system. Access to the server room is possible only for the authorized persons and only in the company of a member of the facility staff, via a system of security doors. The data center is also protected against fire and has a redundant power supply source. The quality of the data center services is guaranteed by the ISO 9001:2009 and ISO 27001:2005 certificates (information security management system).
