The future of no code means that managing security infrastructure on your own, and in a silo, is a thing of the past.
If you don’t need a programmer to build your app, what does this mean for security? It means the worries about securing and building server infrastructure on your own, and then taking the full responsibility of maintaining it are taken off your plate.
While it’s important to have a level of awareness of security issues specific to your organization and project needs, this doesn’t need to be the sole focus anymore - the focus can return to actually designing and creating your application.
With a platform that integrates security for both institutional review and HIPAA you get all of the best in class security protocols that a large company would implement, but at an accessible price point and in a way that doesn’t require you to manage it yourself.
Part of the key to no code is thinking of components as building blocks that users can piece together and tailor to their own needs. This is what makes visual app builders powerful, in that they are able to weave in their own expertise and lived experience and bring that into their app without this knowledge being filtered through the lens of a technology consultant or programmer.
In a similar vein, Security can be considered one of these core building blocks, and with that Chorus has done the work in securing our platform, and then taking an approach of giving our users the building blocks to create their own applications, while ensuring those blocks are secure. - Ryan B., Information Security Information Officer at Chorus
Clients often ask us about how we approach risk assessment and the answer is always “it’s not one size fits all.” We provide a full risk assessment based on the clients needs which can range from a detailed document to an in depth assessment involving our security and compliance team as well as the client’s internal stakeholders. Standard areas of assessment include (but aren’t limited to):
- Patching and maintenance
- Access controls (privilege and role base)
- Physical controls for data center
- Vulnerability scanning (cadenced and/or scheduled)
- HIPAA training for all staff
When you build an application, whether on your own with your own programmers or through a no-code platform (like Chorus) you should carefully consider each of these components as a layer of security and to ensure that there are no vulnerabilities. Further, when you work with a platform you should look for these components to be standard practice and maintained on the platform side itself.
