Incidence Response and Security Policy


Despite everyone’s best efforts and audits, security incidents are an inevitable part of the business. Your security is important to us, and we are fully committed to its security and that of our clients. We continue to maintain a culture of transparency and truthfulness, which also extends to our approach to reporting security incidents. Machi-Systems will take the following actions:

Close all connections to Machi-Systems servers, WHMCS, WP, Machi-Systems Hub, or any other accessible place to resolve the incident rapidly. As soon as any Incidents are reported or discovered by us, we will publish this on our communication channels as soon as possible, including our website, Twitter page, community Discord server, and the Incident response page. We will also start emailing the clients affected, but it might take some time for all emails to be dispatched.

In case you’re experiencing issues with your services, please check the status page at status.machi-systems.com. It’s most likely you will see some maintenance work related to your node. If there is no ongoing maintenance, feel free to open a support ticket to investigate your Issues and guide you accordingly.

Policies

To continue trusting us; we have published a few essential bits of highly important information for you. We want to be as transparent as possible and share all the information that we store and how we store and use them.

Security first partners and vendors

  • We assess third-party partners and vendors for fit and security risk based on the services they provide. We also make sure the right technical and contractual commitments are in place.
  • We use N+1, Tier 3 data center vendors with your availability and security in mind—and with physical security.
  • We use private VLANs at our network providers: Novoserve.com and YISP.nl to keep the data safe and secure and to avoid possible sneaking.
