This is the third part in a multi-part series on Cybersecurity.
At RunBuggy, our in-house Security team is embedded in the DevOps pipeline, known as DevSecOps. By placing Security on the same level of importance as Development and Operations, RunBuggy runs a much tighter and more focused security team than companies that outsource security. When companies outsource, they relegate their important tasks to being lost in a sea of support tickets. Security is much vital to a company’s success to not be taken seriously. As technology increases here at RunBuggy, security will become even more mission critical.
RunBuggy employees understand what risks are involved in automotive transportation and logistics because we have personally dealt with having vehicles shipped as car enthusiasts. We understand what it feels like when you’ve found “the one” and how nerve-wracking it is when there are thousands of miles between you and your dream car. This is precisely why we place such focus on security- security of the platform, your data, and the shipper’s data. We want to ensure that your vehicle arrives in just as pristine of condition as when it was loaded up on the hauler. With DevSecOps, our security is assessed on an ongoing basis. We also aim to automate security checks whenever possible as automation lends itself to speed, reliability, and cost reduction. With the automation of the RunBuggy platform, issues are more likely to be found and repaired earlier. This results in a much higher quality end product for our customers.
DevSecOps also focuses on enhancing and normalizing security considerations. One of the most important security considerations at RunBuggy is compliance, which helps us not only protect our client’s data but ensures that we reduce or avoid significant fines and penalties for non-compliance. To provide the best platform on the market, RunBuggy takes the protection of client data as seriously as the protection of our own.
Along with collaboration and communication, we also practice continuous improvement so that we can solve issues as they arise. We prioritize allocating time and resources to deal with potential issues accordingly. Silos are broken down between different teams, and we consistently scrutinize and improve practices and processes. This allows RunBuggy to meet and exceed client expectations at a superior rate to others on the market.
In part four of this multi-part series, we’ll focus on SOC 2 audits. We will explain why they are important for compliance, and what this means for you as our customer and partner.
