Cybersecurity protocol should be taken very seriously. Below are the measures adopted to safeguard your personal data:
Online Form submission is accomplished through Jotforms HIPPA compliant server. That form data is transmitted across a protected 256 bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) connection that uses a SHA256 Certificate. This is the same level of protection used by online banking or e-commerce providers.
Email: All email correspondence is done through a secure platform via Microsoft Office 365. Even though the platform is secure, email can be targeted once the transmission leaves the server. Because of this, email should only be used for general purposes. Account numbers, social security numbers, or other identifying data should not be transmitted via email unless through an encrypted document.
Custodian Access: In order to access your investment accounts via third party custodian, Dual Factor Authentication is always used. This means that in addition to the standard log in ID and Password, account access is only granted after SMS based authentication with a numerical code, reset after each log in.
Business Computers: In order to perform our day to day duties, desktops and laptops are both generally used. These are the only such devices used to access client data. All devices are backed up weekly onto physical external hard drives. All devices are encrypted, and Antivirus software is updated regularly and automatically.
