The following description reviews the technical and organizational measures implemented by ScyllaDB as the data importer to ensure an appropriate level of security, taking into account the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, and the risks for the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

The security objectives of ScyllaDB are identified and managed to maintain a high level of security and consists of the following (concerning all data assets and systems):

Availability – information and associated assets should be accessible to authorized users when required. The computer network must be resilient. ScyllaDB will detect and respond rapidly to incidents (such as viruses and other malware) that threaten the continued availability of assets, systems, and information.

Confidentiality – ensuring that information is only accessible to those authorized to access it, on a need-to-know-basis.

Integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods and therefore requires preventing deliberate or accidental, partial or complete, destruction, or unauthorized modification, of electronic data.

Description of the technical and organizational measures implemented by the data importer(s) (including any relevant certifications) to ensure an appropriate level of security, taking into account the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, and the risks for the rights and freedoms of natural persons:

System Control

Access to the ScyllaDB’s database is highly restricted in order to ensure that only the relevant personnel who have received prior approval can access the database. ScyllaDB’s has also implemented appropriate safeguards related to remote access and wireless computing capabilities. Employees are assigned private passwords that allow strict access or use to Personal Data, all in accordance with such employee’s position, and solely to the extent such access or use is required. There is constant monitoring of access to the Personal Data and the passwords used to gain access. ScyllaDB is using automated tools to identify non-human login attempts and rate-limiting login attempts to minimize the risk of a brute force attack.

Data Access Control

User authentication measures have been put in place in order to ensure that access to Personal Data is restricted solely to those employees who have been given permission to access it and to ensure that the Personal Data is not accessed, modified, copied, used, transferred or deleted without specific authorization for such actions to be done. Any access to Personal Data, as well as any action performed involving the use of Personal Data requires a password and user name, which is routinely changed, as well as blocked when applicable. Each employee is able to perform actions solely in accordance with the permissions granted to him by ScyllaDB. Furthermore, ScyllaDB conducts ongoing reviews of the employees who have been given authorization to access Personal Data, in order to assess whether such access is still required. ScyllaDB revokes access to Personal Data immediately upon termination of employment. Authorized individuals can only access Personal Data that are located in their individual profiles.

Organizational and Operational Security

ScyllaDB puts a lot of effort and invests a lot of resources into ensuring that ScyllaDB’s security policies and practices are being complied with, including by continuously providing employees with training with respect to such security policies and practices. ScyllaDB strives to raise awareness regarding the risks involved in the processing of Personal Data. In addition, ScyllaDB has implemented applicable safeguards for its hardware and software, including by installing firewalls and anti-virus software on applicable ScyllaDB hardware and software, in order to protect against malicious software.

Availability Control

ScyllaDB maintains backup policies and associated measures. Such backup policies include permanent monitoring of operational parameters as relevant to the backup operations. Furthermore, ScyllaDB’s servers include an automated backup procedure. ScyllaDB also conducts regular controls of the condition and labelling of data storage devices for data security. ScyllaDB ensures that regular checks are carried out to determine whether it is possible to undo the backup, as required and applicable.

Physical Access Control

ScyllaDB recognizes the significance of physical security controls as a key component in its overall security program. Physical access methods, procedures and controls have been implemented to help prevent unauthorized access to data, assets and restricted areas. Processes are in place to remove access to physical resources when an individual no longer requires access.

In addition, ScyllaDB does not hold any customer data or personal info on site. Physical Access to ScyllaDB office does not provide any privileges to the production environment.

Penetration Testing

External penetration test is performed on an annual basis. The penetration tests include, among others, procedures to prevent customers, groups of individuals, or other entities from accessing confidential information other than their own. The penetration tests and security scans are performed by a reputable Third-party vendor. In addition, ScyllaDB conducts vulnerability scans designed to identify potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations on a periodic basis and after any significant change in the environment. Actions are taken to remediate identified deficiencies on a timely basis. Vulnerability scans is performed using external tools, in order to detect potential security breaches


ScyllaDB Implements Encryption at rest of customer data as well as encryption in transit of all communication between client and service, as well as communication between elements in the services.

In some cases, encryption is based on underline cloud provider services, in some cases it is implemented as part of ScyllaDB Enterprise. Encryption between ScyllaDB customers and the ScyllaDB application is enabled using a minimum HTTPS TLS 1.2 authenticated tunnel.

Compliance and Certification

ScyllaDB operations, policies and procedures are audited regularly to ensure ScyllaDB meets all standards expected as a cloud system provider. Compliance certifications and attestations are assessed by a third-party, independent auditor and result in a certification, audit report, or attestation of compliance. ScyllaDB’s systems and Services were audited and verified by such compliance certification. ScyllaDB is SOC2 certified, as well as ISO 27001:2013, ISO 27017:2015 and ISO 27018:2019.

Such certifications and audits are meant to ensure an appropriate level of security, taking into account the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, and the risks for the rights and freedoms of natural persons are according to the System and Organization Controls 2 (SOC2) industry standard as well as ISO 27001:2013, ISO 27017:2015 and ISO 27018:2019. Upon Customer request and subject to Customer’s confidentiality undertaking ScyllaDB shall provide with the Customer with the SOC2 reports or executive summary of the ISO 27001:2013, ISO 27017:2015 and ISO 27018:2019 audits.
