iCrederity takes reasonable measures to help secure
our service, including:
Secure Socket Layer SSL high-grade encryption (128 or 256 bit) is used to secure
all sensitive data transmissions.
iCrederity servers are protected from intrusion. The actual hardware is hosted in
24/7 secured and power redundant geographically dispersed facilities located in
the United States. The servers are protected by both hardware and software firewalls
and are McAfee HackerSafe certified.
Where possible, data is stored independently of personally identifiable information.
iCrederity also negotiates with verifying authorities to minimize the amount of
data required in order to complete a verification and does not unnecessarily retransmit
sensitive data once a verification has been completed.
Operations facilities are secured with physical security and alarm systems, 24/7
surveillance, and biometrically controlled entryways. Personnel are carefully screened,
background checked, and bound to confidentiality, and human access to data is limited
on a need-to-know basis only.
iCrederity periodically reviews and revises its security practices in order to improve
