Recent headlines remind us of the importance of safeguarding online information. Workday commits to protecting personal data in the system, using the protocols described below. Learn more by exploring a demo, which was initially shown at one of the University’s Pop-up Labs. The lab enabled campus to interact with Workday and its security features, as part of a series of events held during October’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
Beyond electronic safeguards, Workday employs physical security to protect the servers where the company stores user information. State-of-the-art data centers, designed to host mission-critical computer systems, are monitored by security personnel 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Additionally, camera surveillance systems are installed at critical internal and external entry points. Individuals entering the server area must complete several layers of authentication, and unsuccessful attempts are logged and monitored. Workday adheres to the strictest physical security measures to highly restrict access to its data centers.
