How is data being backed up by Figma?

For compliance reasons, we have to make sure that all the data that we need to run our business is being backed up.

In Figma we can export individual files, but what happens if by accident someone deletes data or if Figma itself has issues and data gets destroyed?

What is subject to be backed up? All design files, incl. libraries. But also account members, teams, projects, and all other administrative data.

I expect Figma to be able to restore data to a certain degree, but I couldn’t find any explicit section in the DPA or terms.

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out.
As you could read in the Figma DPA, Figma complies with data protection regulations and privacy laws. We also take part in audits as required by applicable data privacy laws.

In case of data loss, Figma maintains an information security incident management program that addresses the management of security incidents or data breaches - you will find more information on this process in Figma’s SOC 2 Type II Report and ISO certifications.

We understand how important these matter are for organizations and as such, if you’d like us to provide you with a copy of the third-party audit reports relating to our SOC 2 Type II Report and our ISO certifications, please feel free to reach out to your Figma Account Manager/Executive. They will also be able to provide you with more information about the current data retention schedule.

I hope it helps.
