The following information security controls are required to reduce unauthorized access to consumer information. It is your responsibility to implement these controls. If you do not understand these requirements or need assistance, it is your responsibility to get an outside service provider to assist you.Experian reserves the right to make changes to these Access Security Requirements without prior notification. The information provided herewith provides minimum baselines for information security.
In accessing GLBA 5A Data, you agree to follow these Experian security requirements. These requirements are applicable to all systems and devices used to access, transmit, process, or store Experian data.
1. Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- If using third party or proprietary systems to access the LexisNexis Online Services, ensure that the access must be preceded by authenticating users to the application and/or system (e.g. application based authentication, Active Directory, etc.) utilized for accessing LexisNexis data/systems.
- If the third party or third party software or proprietary system or software, used to access the LexisNexis Online Services, is replaced or no longer in use, the passwords should be changed immediately.
- Create a unique user ID for each user to enable individual authentication and accountability for access to the Online Services. Each user must also have a unique logon password.
- Develop strong passwords that are:
- Not easily guessable (i.e. your name or company name, repeating numbers and letters or consecutive numbers and letters)’
- Contain a minimum of eight (8) alphabetic and numeric characters for standard user accounts
- For interactive sessions (i.e. non system-to-system) ensure that passwords/passwords are changed periodically or that enhancements such as multi-factor authentication are implemented (every 90 days is recommended)
- Passwords (e.g. user/account password) must be changed immediately when:
- Any system access software is replaced by another system access software or is no longer used
- The hardware on which the software resides is upgraded, changed or disposed without being purged of sensitive information
- Any suspicion of password being disclosed to an unauthorized party (see section D.3 for reporting requirements)
- It is understood that the practice of encryption of sensitive data at rest will be implemented in the year 2017 for you, it being understood that in the meantime you shall implement other compensating controls when the data is at rest, including physical security, access controls, or vulnerability assessments
- Ensure that passwords are not transmitted, displayed or stored in clear text; protect all end user (e.g. internal and external) passwords using, for example, encryption or a cryptographic hashing algorithm also known as “one-way” encryption. When using encryption, ensure that strong encryption algorithms are utilized (e.g. AES 256 or above).
- Implement password protected screensavers with a maximum fifteen (15) minute timeout to protect unattended workstations. Systems should be manually locked before being left unattended.
- Active logins to credit information systems must be configured with a 30 minute inactive session timeout.
- You must NOT install Peer-to-Peer file sharing software on systems used to access, transmit or store Experian data
- Ensure that Subscriber’s employees do not access their own credit reports or those reports of any family member(s) or friend(s) unless it is in connection with a credit transaction or for another permissible purpose
- Implement physical security controls to prevent unauthorized entry to Subscriber’s facility and access to systems used to obtain credit information. Ensure that access is controlled with badge readers, other systems, or devices including authorized lock and key.
2. Maintain a Vulnerability Management Program Implement Strong Access Control Measures
- Keep operating system(s), firewalls, routers, servers, personal computers (laptops and desktops) and all other systems current with appropriate system patches and updates.
- Configure infrastructure such as firewalls, routers, servers, tablets, smart phones, personal computers (laptops and desktops), and similar components to industry standard security practices, including disabling unnecessary services or features, and removing or changing default passwords, IDs and sample files/programs, and enabling the most secure configuration features to avoid unnecessary risks.
- Implement and follow current best security practices for computer virus detection scanning services and procedures:
- Use, implement and maintain a current, commercially available anti-virus software on all systems, if applicable anti-virus technology exists. Anti-virus software deployed must be capable to detect, remove, and protect against all known types malicious software such as viruses, worms, spyware, adware, Trojans, and root-kits.
- Ensure that all anti-virus software is current, actively running, and generating audit logs; ensure that anti-virus software is enabled for automatic updates and performs scans on a regular basis.
- If you suspect an actual or potential virus infecting a system, immediately cease accessing the system and do not resume the inquiry process until the virus has been eliminated.
3. Protect Data
- Develop and follow procedures to ensure that data is protected throughout its entire information lifecycle (from creation, transformation, use, storage and secure destruction) regardless of the media used to store the data (i.e., tape, disk, paper, etc.).
- Experian data is classified Confidential and must be secured to in accordance with the requirements mentioned in this document at a minimum.
- Procedures for transmission, disclosure, storage, destruction and any other information modalities or media should address all aspects of the lifecycle of the information.
- Encrypt all Experian data and information when stored electronically on any system including but not limited to laptops, tablets, personal computers, servers, databases using strong encryption such as AES 256 or above. An alternative to encryption at rest is compensating controls designed to mitigate the risk of data exposure.
- Experian data must not be stored locally and permanently on smart tablets and smart phones such as iPads, iPhones, Android based devices, etc.
- When using smart tablets or smart phones to access Experian data, ensure that such devices are protected via device pass-code
- Applications utilized to access Experian data via smart tablets or smart phones must protect data while in transmission using an industry-recognized, strong, encryption method.
- Only open email attachments and links from trusted sources and after verifying legitimacy.
- When no longer in use, ensure that hard-copy materials containing Experian data are crosscut shredded, incinerated, or pulped such that there is reasonable assurance the hard-copy materials cannot be reconstructed.
- When no longer in use, electronic media containing Experian data is rendered unrecoverable via a secure wipe program in accordance with industry-accepted standards for secure deletion, or otherwise physically destroying the media (for example, degaussing).
4. Maintain an Information Security Policy
- Suitable to complexity and size of the organization, establish and publish information security and acceptable user policies identifying user responsibilities and addressing requirements in line with this document and applicable laws and regulations.
- The FACTA Disposal Rules requires that Subscriber implement appropriate measures to dispose of any sensitive information related to consumer credit reports and records that will protect against unauthorized access or use of that information.
- Implement and maintain ongoing mandatory security training for those who have access to Experian information and awareness sessions for all staff to underscore the importance of security in the organization.
- When using third party service providers (e.g. application service providers) to access, transmit, store or process Experian data, ensure that service provider is compliant with the Experian Independent Third Party Assessment (EI3PA) program, and registered in Experian’s list of compliant service providers. If the service provider is in the process of becoming compliant, it is Subscriber’s responsibility to ensure the service provider is engaged with Experian and an exception is granted in writing. Approved certifications in lieu of EI3PA can be found in the Glossary section.
5. Build and Maintain a Secure Network
- Protect Internet connections with dedicated, industry-recognized firewalls that are configured and managed using industry best security practices.
- Internal private Internet Protocol (IP) addresses must not be publicly accessible or natively routed to the Internet. Network address translation (NAT) technology should be used.
- Administrative access to firewalls and servers must be performed through a secure internal wired connection or over a secured private network only.
- Any stand-alone computers that directly access the Internet must have a desktop firewall deployed that is installed and configured to block unnecessary/unused ports, services, and network traffic.
- Change vendor defaults including but not limited to passwords, encryption keys, SNMP strings, and any other vendor defaults.
- For wireless networks connected to or used for accessing or transmission of Experian data, ensure that networks are configured and firmware on wireless devices updated to support strong encryption (for example, IEEE 802.11i) for authentication and transmission over wireless networks.
- When using service providers (e.g. software providers) to access LexisNexis systems, access to third party tools/services must require multi-factor authentication.
6. Regularly Monitor and Test Networks
- Perform regular tests on information systems that serve Experian data and are exposed to the Internet (port scanning, virus scanning, internal/external vulnerability scanning). Ensure that issues identified via testing are remediated according to the issue severity (e.g. fix critical issues immediately, high severity in 15 days, etc.)
- Ensure that audit trails are enabled and active for systems and applications used to access, store, process, or transmit Experian data; establish a process for linking all access to such systems and applications. Ensure that security policies and procedures are in place to review security logs on daily or weekly a periodic basis and that follow-up to exceptions is required.
- Use current best practices to protect telecommunications systems and any computer system or network device(s) used to provide Services hereunder to access LexisNexis systems and networks. These controls should be selected and implemented to reduce the risk of infiltration, hacking, access penetration or exposure to an unauthorized third party by:
- protecting against intrusions;
- securing the computer systems and network devices;
- and protecting against intrusions of operating systems or software.
7. Mobile and Cloud Technology
- Storing Experian data permanently on mobile devices is prohibited. Any exceptions must be obtained from Experian in writing; additional security requirements will apply.
- Mobile applications development must follow industry known secure software development standard practices such as OWASP and OWASP Mobile Security Project adhering to common controls and addressing top risks.
- Mobile applications development processes must follow secure software assessment methodology which includes appropriate application security testing (for example: static, dynamic analysis, penetration testing) and ensuring vulnerabilities are remediated.
- Mobility solution server/system should be hardened in accordance with industry and vendor best practices such as Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmarks, NIS, NSA, DISA and/or other.
- Mobile applications and data shall be hosted on devices through a secure container separate from any personal applications and data. See details below. Under no circumstances is Experian data to be exchanged between secured and non-secured applications on the mobile device.
- In case of non-consumer access, that is, commercial/business-to-business (B2B) users accessing Experian data via mobile applications (internally developed or using a third party application), ensure that multi-factor authentication and/or adaptive/risk-based authentication mechanisms are utilized to authenticate users to application.
- When using cloud providers to access, transmit, store, or process Experian data ensure that:
- Appropriate due diligence is conducted to maintain compliance with applicable laws and regulations and contractual obligations
- Cloud providers must have gone through independent audits and are compliant with one or more of the following standards, or a current equivalent as approved/recognized by Experian:
