How is My Business’s Sensitive Information Protected in SAM?



The System for Award Management (SAM) takes the privacy and security of your business’s sensitive information seriously and has implemented several measures to protect it:

  1. Data Encryption: SAM uses data encryption to protect your information as it is transmitted over the internet. This helps prevent unauthorized access to your data.
  2. User Authentication: SAM requires users to create a account in order to access the system. This account uses multi-factor authentication to verify the identity of the user.
  3. Access Controls: SAM has strict access controls in place to ensure that only authorized individuals can access your business’s sensitive information. This includes role-based access controls that limit the information that can be viewed and edited based on the user’s role.
  4. Security Certifications: SAM has obtained various security certifications and compliances, such as Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), which ensures that the system meets the strict security requirements set by the federal government.
  5. Regular Security Audits and Assessments: SAM conducts regular security audits and assessments to identify and mitigate any potential security vulnerabilities.
  6. User Training and Awareness: SAM provides training and resources to help users understand how to protect their information and use the system securely.

While SAM has implemented these security measures, it is also important for users to take steps to protect their information. This includes creating a strong password, keeping your account information confidential, and being aware of phishing scams and other online threats.
