Autodesk understands that unexpected or low-frequency, high-impact events may happen as the result of a natural disaster or at the hands of an Autodesk employee or a third party. In preparation, we’ve devised business continuity plans and emergency response plans to help minimize the risk that customers of the Autodesk Managed Cloud Services will experience.
As a Cloud Security Alliance member, Autodesk promotes the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. We provide education on the uses of cloud computing to help secure all other forms of computing.
Autodesk logs administrative access to all systems required for dependable operation of the Autodesk Managed Cloud Services.
Autodesk periodically conducts random failure simulations of critical system components to validate procedures and operation of the Autodesk Managed Cloud Services.
If a security incident affects the Autodesk Managed Cloud Services, we may conduct a postmortem investigation. These investigations are necessary to determine the root cause for single events, identify trends spanning multiple events over time, and develop new strategies to help prevent recurrence of similar incidents.
