Atlassian is introducing a new Privacy and Security tab in the Marketplace listing UI for cloud apps. This new tab will provide detailed information on the privacy, security, data handling, and compliance practices followed by cloud apps and will replace the Security Self Assessment as a Cloud Fortified requirement. The Security Self Assessment will be deprecated on August 13, 2023, 6 months after we begin accepting responses for this new Privacy & Security tab.
The security self-assessment program is a collaboration with our Marketplace Partners to increase security awareness and improve security practices.
To be eligible, you'll need to:
You can learn more about Program requirements below.
If you need to report a security bug or incident for your app, Report an issue at Developer and Marketplace support.
The main goals of the security self-assessment program are to:
For customers, the program also promotes security mindfulness in three main areas:
|Data security||The cloud partner has a clear data security policy. Data vulnerabilities are considered and handled.|
|Sensitive data handling||The cloud partner is mindful of the different types of data it handles and places extra security on sensitive data.|
|Backups and disaster recovery||The cloud partner backs up its data regularly and has a clear plan for data recovery in case of disaster.|
The security self-assessment program requires you to:
If your app is approved, the "Security" section of your cloud app listing and partner profile page will display:
This partner has completed the security self-assessment and shared the results with Atlassian.
Cloud app partners are encouraged to complete a yearly self-assessment of their data security practices. This information is self-reported by partners, and Atlassian is not responsible for the security or integrity of this app.
The security self-assessment contains 13 security questions as part of your application.
Your answers will be:
No additional audit or testing is performed.
While program approval can give your customers peace of mind, they may take further steps to meet company security requirements. If this is the case, they may contact you for more information.
