It is common for a company to have questions about the security of their information being shared over the internet. At TradeTapp, we make information security one of our top priorities and want to ensure our users that security is never taken lightly. Below are some answers to common questions we get concerning our treating of sensitive information.
How does TradeTapp protect and secure my information?
TradeTapp’s database and platform is hosted with Amazon Web Services (AWS). All information transferred between the browser and our servers is encrypted via SSL, and all account passwords are stored, encrypted, and salted. In the unlikely event that the account information database is compromised, the passwords cannot be used to gain account access. In addition, our databases are backed up to redundant storage so that in the unlikely event of a hardware failure, all data can be fully restored. AWS’ security is continuously recognized as best-in-class, and is used by Fortune 500 companies such as Autodesk, Intuit, Paciﬁc, Capital One, and many more.
How does TradeTapp treat my sensitive Financial and Safety data?
TradeTapp uses a benchmarking model for it’s ﬁnancial and safety analysis. Our algorithm behaves very similar to a bell curve approach commonly used in standardized testing. In order to perform these calculations, we ﬁrst remove any connection to company identiﬁers and then aggregate the data together. Sensitive data, identiﬁable to a single Subcontractor, is never shared outside of the parties for whom it is originally consented.
