Information security is a critical element of e-participation systems. We take these threats seriously by implementing strong business and development processes and making hard choices to protect your community’s data.
Effective e-participation requires public trust that the systems maintain personal privacy above all other considerations. We understand this, which is why unlike many companies we do not seek to profit from your community database. You own all of the data collected through your EngagementHQ site.
A local hosting solution is critical to maintaining a secure website. It is a requirement of national legislation in every country in which we operate. Which is why we have servers in Australasia, Canada, the USA and the UK. Our servers are highly secure with robust back-up systems and 99.9 percent up-time.
Some of the most common threats today include software attacks, theft of intellectual property, identity theft, information theft, sabotage, and information extortion. We have a strong information security framework in place that includes third party auditing and penetration testing.
With a little extra work we can add SSL to your site. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
