Trigger.dev utilizes Amazon Web Services and Cloudflare to provide the infrastructure (data centres, servers and similar) to provide the Cloud Trigger.dev Service. Details of this infrastructure and security measures can be found here:

2. Network and Application

2.1. Intrusion Detection.

Intrusion detection is intended to provide insight into ongoing attack activities and provide adequate information to respond to incidents. Trigger.dev’s intrusion detection involves:

2.1.1. Tightly controlling the size and make-up of Trigger.dev’s attack surface through preventative measures;

2.1.2. Employing intelligent detection controls at data entry points; and

2.1.3. Employing technologies that automatically remedy certain dangerous situations.

2.2. Incident response

Trigger.dev monitors a variety of communication channels for security incidents, and Trigger.dev’s security personnel will react promptly to known incidents.

2.3. Transit Encryption Technologies

Trigger.dev makes HTTPS encryption (also referred to as SSL or TLS connection) available. Trigger.dev servers support ephemeral elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman cryptographic key exchange signed with RSA and ECDSA. These perfect forward secrecy (PFS) methods help protect traffic and minimize the impact of a compromised key, or a cryptographic breakthrough.

2.4. Audit

Trigger.dev has an infrastructure and network and application audit logging for compliance and security monitoring.

2.5. Secure coding

All code is scanned through static analysis on a daily basis to identify bugs and vulnerabilities before they are released. Developers all undergo secure coding training.

2.6. Scans

Trigger.dev runs regular web application and vulnerability scans. Regular scans are made of the infrastructure to identify infrastructure vulnerabilities. Identified issues are reviewed and addressed at the earliest possible time.

3. Business Security

3.1. Business Continuity.

Trigger.dev replicates data over multiple systems to help to protect against accidental destruction or loss. Trigger.dev has designed and regularly plans and tests its business continuity planning/disaster recovery programs.

4. Data

4.1. Data Storage, Isolation & Authentication.

Trigger.dev stores data in a multi-tenant environment in AWS East-1. Data, database and file system architecture are replicated between multiple geographically dispersed data centres.

Trigger.dev logically isolates data on a per Customer basis at the application layer. Trigger.dev logically separates each Customer’s data from the data of other Customers, and data for an authenticated User will not be displayed to another User (unless both Users have access to the same Customer Account).

A central authentication system is used across all services to increase uniform security of data. Customer will be given control over specific data sharing policies. Those policies, in accordance with the functionality of the Trigger.dev Service, will enable Customer to determine the product sharing settings applicable to Users for specific purposes. Customer may choose to make use of certain logging capability that Trigger.dev may make available via the Trigger.dev Service, products and APIs.

4.2. Encryption.

All data is encrypted at rest using AES-256 industry standard. All data backups are encrypted using the same standard.

4.3. Backups & redundancy.

Backups are created continuously and incrementally to allow recovery from a failure. The backups are stored in S3 for high availability.

5. Personnel Security

Trigger.dev personnel are required to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the company’s guidelines regarding confidentiality, business ethics, appropriate usage, and professional standards. Trigger.dev conducts reasonably appropriate backgrounds checks to the extent legally permissible and in accordance with applicable local labour law and statutory regulations.

Personnel are subject to a duty of confidentiality and must acknowledge receipt of, and compliance with, Trigger.dev’s confidentiality and privacy policies.

Personnel are provided with security training.

6. Sub-processor Security

Before onboarding Sub-processors, Trigger.dev conducts an audit of the security and privacy practices of Sub-processors to ensure Sub-processors provide a level of security and privacy appropriate to their access to data and the scope of the services they are engaged to provide.
