Data security and privacy
Workiva adheres to all rules and best practices for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements for the collection, management and protection of personal data. Workiva also conducts privacy impact assessments (PIAs) on features, technology, third-party on-boarding and operations related to our service as required by GDPR.
Identity and access management
Provide easy access to the platform without compromising security via SSO with SAML and two-factor authentication. Control identity using enterprise identity management, including Okta. Employ role-based access to features, content and workspaces. Utilise specific roles for IT admins to manage cross-organization and workspace settings.
Global compliance standards
Workiva operations, policies and procedures are audited regularly to ensure that they meet and exceed all standards expected of cloud service providers (CSPs). Workiva publishes a Service Organization Controls (SOC) 1 Type II and a SOC 2 Type II audit report, which are available for review upon request.
Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) Management
Certain businesses need an extra layer of control and protection. With BYOK, use your own encryption keys for complete flexibility, control and visibility of access to your data. The result? Additional assurance and confidence as you scale your Workiva experience.
