FoodStorm: Trusted and Secure Catering Software
April 24th, 2021
Operating a business today comes with additional considerations that did not exist even a few years ago. Using software and having an online presence means you could be vulnerable to cyber attacks, scams and data breaches. Cyber security and data privacy compliance are taken extremely seriously at FoodStorm, which is why we’ve worked diligently to provide a trusted and secure catering software platform.
We treat our customers’ data like our own, ensuring it is always protected by taking various measures and adhering to leading industry standards. Read on to learn the ways FoodStorm safeguards your data and provides a secure place to operate your catering business.
Microsoft partnership and technology stack
Working with Microsoft and being listed on their AppSource store allows FoodStorm to remain on the cutting edge of technology and security. Our technology stack, which is software developer lingo for all the technology used to build and run our software, is provided and hosted by Microsoft. Our data centres are protected by 24/7 physical security, as well as a wide range of network and security devices, including a Web Application Firewall, network encryption and data encryption. All of these protections help ensure that the FoodStorm platform provides high availability, fast performance and of course, security, for our customers.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) compliant
GDPR is a legal framework for how personal information can be gathered and processed for people living in the European Union. CCPA is a law for California, USA residents allowing them more control over how businesses collect and use their personal information. By being compliant with these regulations, all FoodStorm end users, no matter if they are located within or outside of the European Union or California, benefit from having control over their personal information.
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant
PCI DSS compliance is a set of requirements for companies and sellers to securely and safely accept, store, process and transmit credit card data during transactions to prevent data breaches and fraud. FoodStorm assists our customers with their PCI compliance obligations by providing a Level-1 Certified solution for processing credit card payments. FoodStorm implements card tokenization technology and does not display sensitive credit card information to any end user. This helps ensure our customers provide trusted and secure credit card processing for their customers.
International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) certified data centre hosting
FoodStorm’s data centres carry various ISO certifications, adhering to standards to ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of our systems, service and products. Below are the ISO certifications held by FoodStorm’s data centres:
ISO 9001 – standard for quality management systems for companies that consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

Third-party security audits
FoodStorm regularly undertakes security audits by a number of specialised security organisations. These audits help ensure that the FoodStorm platform remains secure, within an ever-changing security landscape.
